One hurdle down, one more to go.
Last week, Port Dover residents had their hearts dashed after the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change sent a letter to the County asking for more studies to be completed on Misner Dam.
Thankfully, there was a misunderstanding, and the letter was ripped up, but Norfolk County Council is still dealing with the other elephant in the room: that $1.5 million price tag.
That’s how much it will cost to repair the dam, and when you take into account Norfolk County’s $1.1 million budget they set up back in 2009 and add the expenses today, including this the bid of $1.5 million; the county will now be spending $2.1 million on repairing the dam.
Last Tuesday, when everyone thought the issue would be addressed, a crowd gathered trying to sway our elected official’s minds.
One of those individuals was Tim Rodgers speaking on behalf of the Port Dover Yacht Club.
He spoke about a common fear that if the dam is not repaired, then the silt of the Lynn River will play a drastic role.
Council votes Tuesday.
