Fire grants for North Frontenac

North Fronenac Fire Chief Steve Riddell learned recently that an application for a matching grant under the Joint Emergency Preparedness Program (JEPP) has been approved. The township will receive 40% funding for new radios in each hall and a generator for the Emergency Operations Centre.

A further application for a chair lift at the fire hall to provide handicapped access to the second floor meeting rooms, was denied.

Amazing race put off – Dave Winney has informed the township that his plans for a rally for a military motorcycle club will be put off until 2009.

$880 bill to be sent to Aborigial Affairs – A clean up that public works recently completed outside of the gate at the Robertsville mine cost $880. “I read somewhere that the Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs is covering legal costs for the First Nations. I think we should therefore send them the bill,” said Mayor Ron Maguire.

Council will do just that.
