City of Magog has decided to close its fire station in the Lac Lovering sector. The council took the decision to save money and because the station had been used very little in the last few years. The last time that the pumper truck located in that fire hall was used was during the ice storm of 2013.
Once the fire hall is closed, 1,700 homes will then be more than 8 kilometres from the nearest station and will likely see their insurance bills go up accordingly.
Letters from the city were sent out to property owners in the affected area, informing them of the decision. “My main concern is that the people who will be affected by this decision may not be aware of it, because most of them are seasonal residents,” commented a resident of that sector, James Sutton. Mr. Sutton, who is planning to attend the next council meeting, on March 2nd, and the special meeting on March 3rd on the topic, hopes that other residents in the area will become aware of the situation in time to have their voices heard.
