Notice of Public Meeting on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm

The Council of the Township of Enniskillen is hosting a public meeting at the Enniskillen Council chambers on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm to provide the public an opportunity to comment on restricting access to Fairweather Road between Rokeby Line and Shiloh Line.

This portion of Fairweather Road has a clay surface that provides local access to farm properties.  This action is being considered due to the road surface being extensively damaged by persons operating four wheel drive vehicles.  The road is also subject to seasonal flooding by Bear Creek.

Comments concerning this matter may be circulated to the undersigned.
