Declaring an Emergency - Flooding Update

Mayor Moore declared an emergency last night as rising water levels pose an ongoing threat to the property, health and safety of residents.  This declaration highlights the seriousness of the situation.  Regular Township services may be affected as municipal resources are deployed to deal with the flooding emergency.  A FIRE BAN IS IN EFFECT. No permits will be issued at this time.

The Township has requested assistance from the Province, which may include the military as this situation continues.  Mayor Moore has been in touch with Renfrew County Warden Jennifer Murphy, MPP John Yakabuski and MP Cheryl Gallant.  We will continue to share information and request resources as needed.  The Township’s municipal emergency control group is meeting regularly and reaching out to agencies as required.
