TAY TOWNSHIP – A number of Tay Township residents are up in arms about the proposed sale of several pieces of municipally owned land.

A notice appeared earlier this month on Tay Township’s website and in The Mirror stating council was considering a bylaw to declare surplus and sell several pieces of land. The proposed list includes parkland and waterfront properties.

Mayor Scott Warnock said the item was to have been considered at Wednesday’s council meeting. A decision was not known before The Mirror’s deadline.

Warnock said prior to the meeting that no plan had been made for the sites, adding the proposal was just to have council consider deeming them surplus and putting them up for sale.

“We have not declared any of that land surplus yet and we have made no decision on whether or not to sell it,” Warnock said.
