Generational change at Killaloe

KILLALOE – At the regular meeting of Killaloe, Hagarty & Richards (KHR) council on November 3, the newly appointed Works Superintendent for the township was officially introduced. Dean Holly, who had served the township recently as Deputy Works Superintendent, has now taken over from newly retired Clifford Yantha. 
The highlight of the week for Holly and the work’s department was picking up the township’s new sidewalk plough from Carleton Place. The plough replaces the old snow plough which no longer works. The secondhand sidewalk plough cost $90,000. The machine is in excellent condition and came with many extras from Carleton Place including new tires, seals, yoke and extra drive shafts. Mayor Janice Visneskie Moore said that Carleton Place township “are one of the nicest municipalities we have ever worked with, they are just super.” The work’s department is now completing the maintenance to have the sidewalk plough operational. 
There has been a Request for Comment from the County of Renfrew to KHR on a property severance along the Bonnechere River just below Paugh Lake, near Turner’s Road. This is part of Lot 34, Concession 9, B113/15 owned by Jean and Allen Eno. The 1.6 hectare lot already has a private well and septic unit. Council voted to accept the severance dependent on two conditions, there is a private road agreement in place and it is zoned for limited service residential. 
Council rules 
tree stand offside 
A resident of KHR township recently built a tree stand on a neighbour’s open road allowance contrary to a prior agreement with council that the tree stand would be built adjacent to the resident’s property. The resident has gone beyond his property and built the tree stand on the road allowance next to his neighbour’s property. Since the resident has breached the contract signed with the municipality, council agreed to ask the resident to either remove the tree stand or relocate the tree stand to the resident’s own road allowance. A letter is to be sent by council.
