Official Statement: Council gets update from staff on Urbacon ruling

Press release.

City Council received information from staff regarding the Urbacon ruling at tonight’s closed meeting of Council.

“Tonight Council listened to the information staff provided and asked questions,” says Guelph’s mayor Karen Farbridge. “There was no direction given by Council tonight.”

Last Tuesday, the City received the reasons for Justice Donald MacKenzie’s ruling in the case between the City of Guelph and Urbacon Buildings Group Corp. Since then staff has been reviewing the court document.

The City has reserved the right to appeal the court’s ruling.

Guelph’s Chief Administrative Officer, Ann Pappert, explains, “Administration’s role now is to give Council its best recommendations for moving forward. We will be doing that at the next closed meeting of Council on July 14.”
