By Sean Delaney

On Monday, January 9th, the Emery Village BIA held a virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM).

“This is our once-a-year opportunity to share our year in review, present the planned budget for approval, and preview the activities and programs for this new and challenging year,” said BIA Executive Director Sandra Farina.

The meeting also allowed members to pose questions and hear from elected officials who represent Humber River-Black Creek, including the Hon. Judy Sgro, MP, Tom Rakocevic, MPP and Anthony Perruzza, Toronto Councillor and BIA Board Member.

The Metrolinx Executive Director’s Year in Review 2022 Project Reports & 2023 Proposed Projects included plans for capital improvements, promotions for Emery business, area security, business support, and advocacy dealing with all levels of Government, including programs, grants, and assistance.

Al Ruggero, project manager with the BIA, presented a comprehensive review of projects and work completed in 2022 as well as a look into the future for this year and beyond.

Of great interest, Steve Andrews, a senior manager with Metrolinx, presented an extensive review of the LRT project to date, as well as scheduled work and milestones to occur in 2023.

A closing item was the 2023 BIA operating budget, unanimously approved by the voting member attending. Also, with approval at the AGM, the BIA will welcome two additional board members for the 2023-2026 sitting.

It’s full speed ahead for Emery Village BIA, another exciting year of progress.
