Dombroskis granted approval to dump septage waste locally

BARRY’S BAY – After months of waiting, the Dombroski family has received the final piece of approval, which will allow them to haul and dump septage on their land at 587 Stanley Olsheski Road.

The issue was discussed at length at the August 4 regular council meeting in Barry’s Bay. Earlier this summer, council passed the first and second readings of a bylaw to amend the zoning of the property, but stalled the passing of the third and final reading after objection from the Hasanville community.

At the most recent council meeting, Mayor Kim Love read a letter from Kathy Dombroski, who urged council to make a decision on the matter.

“We are happy to hear that the Hasanville Community have been living in our community for 25 years.

We love our community and we’ve been living in it for a long time,” she wrote.

She outlined Walter Dombroski’s history (the owner of the property where the septage would be hauled).

“He is from a family of nine siblings and Walter and Mary have five children, 11 grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Walter Dombroski’s mother and father lived in Barry’s Bay all their lives. So we are talking over 150 years in this community,” Kathy explained.
