Wild Parsnip

Like giant hogweed, wild parsnip contains chemicals that can cause human skin to react to sunlight resulting in intense burns, rashes or blisters. Abandoned yards, waste dumps, meadows, open fields and roadsides are common areas in which wild parsnip can grow and spread.

Wild parsnip has been found in at least one location in the Township. We would like to ensure that people are aware of the appearance of wild parsnip and the potential danger of the plant. We would appreciate being contacted and notified of the location, if you happen to see any of the plant growing in the Township. We are only able to control the plant on Township property.

911 Address signs

Our Fire Departments have requested that residents check the visibility of 911 address signs. Vegetation growing around the signs will make it difficult to locate a property. It is important that police, fire and ambulance have the ability to clearly locate a property during an emergency. Please ensure that your sign is visible from the road.

If your 911 sign is no longer visible due to the condition of the sign please contact the Municipal Office at 519-882-2490 to arrange for the installation of a new sign.

 

Open Air Burning Notification/Application

During the spring time of year, many tree branches and brush piles accumulate in rural areas.  The Township of Enniskillen requires that if you do need to burn brush, wood, etc.,  you must contact the municipal office for an “Open Air Burning Notification/Application”. The applicant will be asked a few questions, regarding the date of the proposed burn and time of the proposed burn.  Burning is only allowed on farm premises and only between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.  All fires to be extinguished before dark.

According to a local news broadcast, an outside brush fire is to blame for a structure fire in a nearby municipality last evening.  The property owner lost a drive shed due to the building being fully engulfed in flames.  Please make sure that if you do obtain a burn permit, that you take care and control of the burn and have means of extinguisher available to control the burn (i.e. backhoe, tractor, shovel, extinguisher, etc)

Please contact the municipal office for further questions or information at 519-882-2490
