Hello Mr. Smith,
Thanks for sharing this great news re the Ballantrae Fire station.. I think it is very important to have fire service 24/7.
I do have a question regarding the budget. I am wondering if there is anything in the budget for repairing Lakeshore Road. As I use this often, I have found that the road is deteriorating greatly. The pavement is heaving in places and there are numerous potholes. The road needs extensive repairs and I want to know if anything will be done this year?
Thank you for your email and question.
Unfortunately the first step in repairing Lakeshore Road is being done down at the lakeside. All the studies and testing have been completed on that section and construction will begin in 2019. The upper portion of this road, closer to 48, which I also travel regularly, and is in terrible shape is scheduled for a complete rebuild in 2020.
The pot holes should be filled in in the spring but as you realize that is just a temporary solution.
