The City of Quinte West says it’s doing its best and doesn’t have any other options than the current ones available when it comes to roadside brushing.
Last night the city held a public works meeting to address residents’ concerns on safety and beautification issues surrounding brush-clearing in Murray Ward. Letters from concerned residents stated the work has been done using a large machine that flails brush and trees, and leaves the residue on the ground below. The letter contained about 50 signatures of residents on Carmer, Nichols and Schriver Roads requesting that an alternative form of brush control be practised that doesn’t distract from the beauty of the countryside.

Mayor Harrison also pointed to this year’s budget that included more funds for roadside brushing.
