County provides update on Picton Terminals

The County of Prince Edward and Picton Terminals have agreed to engage in discussions that may lead to a negotiated settlement.

“We hope to avoid a costly and protracted legal battle. Our goal is to arrive at a settlement that addresses the County’s and the public’s serious concerns with the operation of Picton Terminals that Council stood up against in 2020, while also ensuring the best interests of the public and of the local and regional economy in the long term,” Mayor Steve Ferguson says. “If a settlement can be reached, we will also address some issues to the benefit of the community.”

County Council has directed its Chief Administrative Officer and legal team to negotiate an agreement with Picton Terminals and return to Council for review and final approval.

During the negotiation window from May 1 to May 31, Picton Terminals has agreed not to perform any major construction on the property. County will continue with its by-law enforcement order against Picton Terminals related to shipping containers on the site. Because Picton Terminals has not complied with the order within the two-week period granted, the municipality is in the process of laying a charge against the company in order to achieve compliance.

The County will provide updates as they become available. Sign up to receive news and notices and follow the municipality on Facebook and Twitter.
