It appears local municipalities are moving towards installing 9-1-1 address numbers on agricultural land.
This week at the council meeting of Tyendinaga Township, members were updated on the “Farm 9-1-1 Project”, also called the “Emily Project”, which aims to install address signs at entrances to farm land.
Tyendinaga Clerk Steve Mercer says it is in honour of Emily Trudeau, who died in a farming accident in Tweed in 2014.
On August 23rd at the Hastings County Farm Show and Plowing Match, officials will unveil details of the plan.
Peterborough County, Northumberland, Prince Edward and Hastings County are interested in the “Emily Project”.
It is not known if farmers or municipalities will be on the hook for the cost of the signs.
