Coat­i­cook digs up down­town

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Coat­i­cook

Coat­i­cook’s Child Street was dug up last week, the be­gin­ning of the town’s down­town de­vel­op­ment pro­ject. A by-law had to be changed at the last coun­cil meet­ing so that the noisy con­struc­tion work can con­tinue un­til 9:00 in the evening, from Mon­day to Fri­day, al­low- ing the work to be com­pleted by the due date.

The coun­cil also de­cided to ac­cept a pro­posal from the com­pany Hy­droMe­teo to pro­vide and in­stall a hy­dro­met­ric sta­tion to mea­sure the level of the Coat­i­cook River. The de­vice will also cal­cu­late the flow of wa­ter. If the wa­ter level or the flow in­creases rapidly, the town will be quickly no­ti­fied.

The Coat­i­cook town hall sits be­hind a moun­tain of dirt af­ter the work to re-de­velop Child Street be­gan last week. The work should be fin­ished by the end of Novem­ber.
