Stanstead Township Nine Lives gets reprieve
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.
