Feature Article

Environmental Zone

Legal Interests in

the Containment Attenuation Zone

Dianne Saxe

Easements are a familiar tool for all municipalities. From standard municipal easements for services like drainage, sanitary and storm sewers, and water lines to more complex easements involving conservation and environmental interests, the nature of the rights prescribed by easements are far-ranging. For municipalities and private owners of landfill sites, active or inactive, groundwater pollution easements can be a cost-saving tool for managing current, or possible, off-site impacts from municipal landfill leachate.



The way the internet has impacted the world is profound, and local governments have not been immune. It has forced these governments to adapt more quickly and embrace change as a reality of doing business. – Rick Aitken, County of Bruce.

Feature Profile

Meet George Cuff – in the Governance Zone

GEORGE B. CUFF, FCMC is a well-known name in the world of local government and author of the best-selling and highly praised books Making a Difference: Cuff's Guide for Municipal Leaders - Volumes 1 and 2.


Feature Books

Executive Policy Governance: A leadership model for local government (George B. Cuff) Item 0056

Leadership is a scarce and very valuable commodity that is absolutely critical to the success or failure of organizations, and is often more known by its absence than its presence. Leaders are influencers: they can see a target often more clearly and more quickly than others and they have the presence necessary to cause others to move in that desired direction.

This book is intended to be useful to anyone involved in an elected capacity at the local level. It offers a valuable model for any system based on democratic principles, including voting rights, equity, fairness, respect for the rule of law, and a willingness to adhere to democratically determined decisions.
