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.
