Hastings County has thrown its support behind a resolution calling for the provincial government to make a change in its hydro policy regarding seasonal residents.
The government has reduced Hydro One consumer delivery charges by a total of 25%.
This reduction does not apply to seasonal residents.
The resolution, introduced at county council’s meeting, calls for this to be changed, and the charges removed from “all Hydro One customers.”
Hastings County has decided how to share its $1.2 million federal gas tax allocation with its municipalities.
The County will retain just under $80,000 and the remainder will be distributed to the 14 member municipalities.
At Hastings County Council this week, Tweed Mayor Jo-Anne Albert announced that a new play by the Tweed and Company theatre group will mark Canada’s 150th birthday.
Albert said “Hastings the Musical,” which tells the history of Hastings County, will run for more than a week, beginning June 28th.
