Everyday Accessibility: Supporting Sensory Safety
Wednesday, September 27, 2023
Sensory toolkits are a bag of items that help support many people, especially people with autism, SPD (sensory processing disorder), anxiety, dementia and Alzheimer’s, etc. by providing calming activities/items. They support calming with all the senses (sunglasses and water timer for visual, ear plugs/earmuffs for auditory, mints/gum for taste/smell, fidgets, playdough, weighted lap pad for tactile, etc.) as different things work for different people depending on the individual.

The Municipality of the County of Kings has two new sensory toolkits to borrow if you are visiting the County office for a public meeting, Council meeting, or event. Sensory toolkits can also be requested in advance for some offsite Recreation programming.

A Reflection on “No Space For Hate,” List of Local 2SLGBTQIA+ Resources
Thursday, September 21, 2023
This Municipal Advisory is to acknowledge widespread events across the country that took place yesterday impacting the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. These are difficult topics for many of us to navigate as we tend to have strong personal biases and opinions that may conflict with others’ views.

This complicated issue causes tension and strong emotions among many people who are passionate about one side of the argument or the other. However, the negative connotation and anti-LGBTQ+ messages of the 1 Million March communicate a lack of inclusion for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. There are folks in our local community who are greatly impacted as this is one of many historical and current situations where members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community fear risks to their right to not be discriminated against, as well as risks to their personal safety and sense of belonging. For a list of local resources, please click the above title.

Community Update: Ongoing Upgrades to Regional Sewer Treatment Plant in New Minas
Wednesday, September 20, 2023
The Municipality of the County of Kings held a community meeting at the New Minas Fire Hall September 20 to share updates about the work underway to address problematic odours at the Regional Sewer Treatment Plant in New Minas.

The upgrades planned for the 2023 construction season started in the spring and will continue throughout the calendar year. Due to the nature of the work required to complete these important upgrades, we do expect temporary periods of foul odours and increased truck traffic crossing the Harvest Moon Trail at the intersection of Jones Road in New Minas in October. We apologize for any frustration or inconvenience this may cause.
