Hamilton City Council will meet in a special session Tuesday afternoon to change two lines in the By-law regulating the Hamilton Farmers' Market.
The session will occur last than 48 hours before the Hamilton Farmers' Market Transition Sub-committee meets to make rulings about appeals lodged by current vendors who were not granted space in the renovated market.
Council will vote on a motion to change a section of the By-law that currently requires Council to approve decisions made by the five-member Hamilton Farmers' Market Transition Sub-committee.
Presently, the By-law reads: "Council-approved decisions of the Market Sub-committee are final." Council is amending this clause to read: "Decisions of the Market Sub-committee are final."
If the motion passes, the decisions made Thursday by the Sub-committee will be final.
The other change to the By-law, if passed, will see the hours of the Market extended on Fridays by opening at 8:00 AM instead of the present 9:00 AM.
Following the debate and vote on amending the Farmers' Market By-law, Council will go in-camera to discuss a matter before the Ontario Municipal Board related to the Rural Official Plan.
