Johnson confirms that as of the closing date at 4-30 on April 4th there were 777 eligible electors who had submitted their opposition totalling 10.75 percent.
Johnson, as the corporate officer, confirmed that at a result the approval of the electors was not received.
As for what’s next, staff will come back to Council with a report on possible options.
One possibility is a full fledged referendum.
