Good Neighbours – Working Together

40 Years of Safe Driving

March 27, 2017

Discount available on payments made by April 30, 2017

Dear Cottage Neighbour,

At the 2016 AGM, it was agreed that the 2017 road fees should continue at $220 or $210 if fees are paid 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. Usually more needs to be done than we can afford and maintenance may be limited to funds available. Please remember that winter is very hard on our road and, while it may be passable in early spring, it is very soft. Please go easy and try not to cause any more damage.

For 40 years now 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.

Road Fees for 2017                                    $220.00
Earlybird discount of $10                       $210.00 if paid by April 30, 2017
