As they reach the end of their life span, our poplar trees are slowly disappearing. Disease has claimed some of our public trees, too!
We also have some very attractive parks, green spaces and sports areas in the village which need care and attention on a year round basis.
If re-elected, I will work toward an extensive plan to replace our aging poplars with other trees AND I will work to create a separate Parks Account within Public Works. In that way we can better monitor the expenses on those public areas and apply those funds to matching grants offered by the provincial and federal governments. There are also a few private organizations out there who offer grants to plant trees!
