Confed Trail run-off ruins land in Emerald
The issue is concerning a lot in the center of the village of Emerald. The road adjacent was raised and this directs all the run-off from the Confederation Trail onto this land. Perhaps ditching can be put in place to prevent this.
Action on High-Speed Internet – FINALLY!
In their April budget the government announced a new, government-owned, high-speed internet backbone. It would take years to build and be very expensive.

Solar panels a feasible solution for North Star Arena cost reduction?

Stanley Bridge roundabout – a four-way stop was all that was needed
The 3-way stop at the Stanley Bridge intersection (St. Mary’s Road and Rattenbury Road) was confusing for tourists.
