39 Years of Safe Driving

April 4, 2016

Discount available on payments made by April 30, 2016

Dear Cottage Neighbour,

At the 2015 AGM, it was agreed that since annual road fees had been held steady for a few years, while maintenance costs increased, there needed to be an increase for 2016. Therefore, it was agreed that the 2016 road fees should be $220 or $210 if fees are received by April 30. With this deadline, it is hoped that sufficient funds will be received in time to pay the contractor for the necessary maintenance on our cottage road (i.e. grading, repairs to potholes, cave-ins and washouts, and the addition of gravel and limestone, as necessary). This work is usually carried out in early June, once all the frost is out of the ground and it is safe to bring in heavy equipment.

The amount spent each year is determined in consultation with the contractor, after examination of the road’s condition in May, and depends on funds available. Usually more needs to be done than we can afford and repairs are often reduced to a bare minimum. Please remember that the road, while it may be passable, is very soft in the early spring. Winter is very hard on our seasonal road. Please go easy and try not to cause any more damage.

For nearly 40 years our road has been one of the best seasonal roads in the area – useable 6 to 7 months of the year at a nominal daily cost for each of us. Your commitment to honour our friendly neighbour policy and pay your share has made this possible. It all depends on you. Thank you for your continuing support! Have a happy summer and safe driving.
