First private road residents to gain from KHR flood relief

KILLALOE – Residents on Great Heron Lane were the first to benefit from Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards Township’s recent emergency funding by-law.

Roads Superintendent Dean Holly informed council at the September 5 regular meeting that he had received an application for emergency funding for flood road damage from the Great Heron Lane Association.

Holly said, “There are 32 residents on that road.” Of that, 29 have participated in the road association.

Mayor Visneskie-Moore was pleased. “Oh good,” she said, 32 times 50, that’s $1,600 dollars.

Councillor Ted Browne said that the association has repaired the road damaged by the flood this spring.

Holly said they employed a local contractor, put some a-level gravel on it and graded it.

“$1,600, that’s really good, that can go towards their bills,” Visneskie-Moore said.

“I want to thank Teddy for bringing that up to council for consideration,” she added.
