PLEASE KEEP THE PRESSURE UP BY CALLING THE MLAs!
Debbie Demare received a call today from our MLA Jacquie Tegart. MLA Jordan Sturdy & herself have gone back to MFLNRO about the snow clearing for this year. Stand by, not a done deal at all, BUT at least she is working on it.. This will need to come out of the budget for maintenance so it still isn’t the long term fix….which is to maintain the road properly AND ensure it is opening (at a reasonable cost) for the spring.
If you haven’t already spoken to your MLA about this, give them a call now!

Many of you have already heard that with the new change in ownership of the Hurley, snow plowing is no longer in the budget and the plan is to let the road melt out naturally. This means there will be no Hurley access until late June or July/August some years depending on the snow pack. The budget this year is $110,000 which includes a one time payment of $80,000 to work on known road issues. That only leaves $30,000 for the rest of the summer maintenance, grading etc. Estimated cost with the low snowpack this year is only between $8,000 – $10,000.
