RE: Road Access to Mosque Lake

Thank you for raising our concerns about the sudden lack of maintenance on Hydro Lane Road leading in to Mosque Lake in your edition dated June 7, 2007, following North Frontenac Council’s meeting on May 31. Without warning and effective immediately, the North Frontenac Council informed us in writing on February 26, 2007 that it would no longer be responsible for the upkeep of our road.

As full residential taxpayers who contribute regularly to the local economy, we feel we have been abandoned by our council members, who have basically dumped the road back in our laps and told us to takeour concerns to the Ministry of Natural Resources.

To add insult to injury, ongoing maintenance by council over the past several years has generally declined to a point where the road is in the worse shape it has ever been and it is now in need of serious repair to bring it back to a reasonable level. All we are asking is that Council return Hydro Lane Road to the condition that it was in when they took it over several years ago.

Why close the Denbigh waste site?

Why close the Denbigh waste site? It’s not any fuller than it was a couple of years ago, and it’s not near water like other dumps I’ve seen. Oh, yes, and who’s going to pay our gas mileage to go to another dump? I guess the council will do that when we send them the bill. What makes Mr. Morish and the council think another dump wants our garbage. I thought the councillors we voted in are to work for our area, not against it. Why should a city person, Mr. Morish, come and tell us in the country what to do? Doesn’t make sense.
