Yet another proposal for below the water table pit, this time in Rockwood by James Dick Construction-(remember the company that was famously defeated in Caledon after a 12 year fight?)
Guelph Eramosa Councillor Doug Breen seems to have a handle on it at least with comments like:
"There is going to be absolutely zero appetite for going below the water table"
"It’s going to be a long long fight"
In the past the township has received tax revenue a new road and a small fee for each tonnage extracted but “It won’t even pay for our phone bill for the complaints we’re going to get”
Does James Dick have a good handle on it? Not so much.
The consultant for Dick says: the James dick proposal does present some concerns: including traffic, water quality and quantity and protection for the natural environment, but he recommends moving forward with he public meeting.
The public meeting is March 25 at 7 pm at the Rockmosa Hall in Rockwood.
74 Christie St RR 1, Rockwood, ON N0B 2K0
Spring will be here by then and the days are longer, so why not take a drive and attend the meeting and support the community?
