Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEF - Vic­to­ria Vanier North Hat­ley

TheVil­lage of North Hat­ley has passed a man­date to ex­pro­pri­ate the land that the ten­nis courts are on from the North Hat­ley Golf Course. “The town would like to buy the land that the ten­nis courts are on. The North Hat­ley Re­cre­ation As­so­ci­a­tion has been us­ing those ten­nis courts for the last twenty- five years. And for the last few years, the golf club has wanted to sell the land and we’ve tried to dis­cuss buy­ing it. We might have to force the sale if there is no agree­ment,” said Leonard Castag­ner, the town’s Gen­eral Man­ager. Ac­cord­ing to the Gen­eral Man­ager, there is a big dif­fer­ence be­tween the ask­ing price and the price the town is of­fer­ing.

The level of the lake was still ex­tremely high in North Hat­ley on Mon­day when Mr. Castag­ner spoke with the Stanstead Jour­nal. “The level went up two feet since last Thurs­day; it’s a lot of wa­ter. It’s al­most a foot more than the max­i­mum height we’ve had for that date. We’re set­ting records,” he said. The wa­ter at the newly re­con­structed dam on the lake was mov­ing at sixty-five cu­bic me­tres per sec­ond on Mon­day.
