This notice is to inform Howe Island residents about possible lifting of rush hour restrictions on the County Ferry . We encourage you to visit the Township web site under News and Notices for details about upcoming council meetings.
HIRA, in monitoring Council, is aware of two requests being advanced at council regarding the lifting of rush hour restriction on the County ferry. One request is to lift the restrictions on farm and heavy trucks and is scheduled to go before Twp Council at their Dec 7 meeting to be held on Howe Island. The other is to lift the restrictions respecting farm equipment only . This request is to be reviewed by County council (as they are the operators of the County ferry). The actual timing of when this request will be heard by the County or Twp councils is unclear at this time. According to correspondence we have received from the Mayor County council will potentially be reviewing it “in camera” at their Nov 18 with the County solicitor.
