Stanstead Town­ship Nine Lives gets re­prieve

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Staff, Stanstead Town­ship

Un­less

there is a cat and dog cen­sus real soon in Stanstead Town­ship, fe­lines and ca­nines may well get eter­nal life. Not the re­sult of the pet bless­ing a cou­ple of weeks ago at the Church in Ge­orgeville, but rather be­cause of a grand­fa­ther clause in­serted in the Pet li­cens­ing by-law of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity at their meet­ing a week ago. You will be able to keep as many pets as you al­ready have now. When they die, then you can­not get another one over the al­lot­ted num­ber. But we all know how many lives cats live…

The monthly meet­ing started with one of those events that brings so­lace to those who still have hope for democ­racy. A teen came to speak about a re­quest to have a skate­board park in Fitch Bay, ac­com­pa­nied by two sup­port­ers. He got one of the most at­ten­tive ears of coun­cil who promised to look into the is­sue and surely will.

New lights will be in­stalled by the Town­ship, LED. They cost a lot more up­front and pay for them­selves very shortly, not on en­ergy cost as much as in the cost of re­plac­ing them. Do the math, boom truck, two em­ploy­ees, mileage.

And there is a new fire chief: Brian Wharry was unan­i­mously cho­sen by coun­cil who in­sisted on the unan­i­mous more than once and said clearly that he was the new chief.

Brian Wharry was named as the new fire chief of Stanstead Town­ship at last Wed­nes­day’s coun­cil meet­ing.
