Fishing Season Opens June 23rd

Canada Geese and Mallard Ducks

Cross Boundary Fire Servicing Agreement

I have had extensive meetings recently with the Fire Chiefs from both Wilmot Township and the City of Waterloo.  They have spent hundreds of hours addressing dozens of issues to ensure the agreement works successfully.  They are continuing to cross-train, plan, and familiarize themselves with our area.  As the weather gets nicer in the Spring […]

Dog Waste

Dog waste that leaches into the ground and water sources is more of an issue than previously realized.  Below is an easy-to-read magazine article talking about the scope and seriousness of the issue.  While there is not much we can do about dog urine (short of banning dogs and outdoor cats which several lake areas […]
