OGMA Newsletter – February 2019

OAKVILLE GLASS AND MIRROR CLOSED: After more than 50 years in business, Dieter and Ingrid Ringler decided it was time to retire and closed the doors at Oakville Glass and Mirror for the last time on January 10. Oakville Glass was a long-time dedicated member of the OGMA and both Dieter and his son Steven served as directors and held terms as president. We wish the Ringler’s a long and healthy retirement. Steven is going to stay on the OGMA board for 2019.

SPRING SEMINAR: We plan on having one and we’ll be sending you the details once we figure them out.

SPRING GOLF: It may seem a ways off, but what better way to spend a cold miserable day than to dream about getting back out on the links. Mark Thursday, May 30, in your calendar now and plan on being out at Pipers Heath Golf Club in time for lunch that day.

BILL 142 – THE CONSTRUCTION LIEN AMENDMENT ACT, 2017: One component of the Act came into effect on July 1, 2018, introducing new performance and labour-and-material payment bond wordings for all publicly funded work in the province. It is mandated that all public projects in excess of $500,000 are to be bonded (50 per cent performance bonds and 50 per cent labour-and-material payment bonds) and new bond wordings will be provided in support of public contracts. A member bulletin on the topic will be released soon.
