Mr. Glenn Walker, Vice-Chair of the Normal Farm Practices Protection Board, published the board's decision in the matter of Mr. Doug Cox verses the Town of Mono. The board found in favour of the Town concluding, "the Applicant’s (Mr. Cox) proposal is not a normal farm practice for the purposes of the non-application of the Fill By-Law. Further, the Applicant does not have standing to bring this Application as he has failed to prove that the proposal is ancillary to an agricultural operation or that he has demonstrable plans."

Mr. Cox applied to the Normal Farm Practices Protection Board claiming that the Town's fill Bylaw restricted his ability to import fill which he alleged was a normal farm practice. The Board held a hearing last November to hear evidence on the matter, rendering its decision on February 22, 2016.

Mayor Laura Ryan confirmed that she was pleased with the outcome, noting “It was important to defend our Municipal Fill By-law to protect the residents of Mono from the significant fill proposals that the rural municipalities surrounding the GTA are facing”.
