Winter Weather
Hello all and Happy New Year. We have had some icy, snowy, weather this past week resulting in a lot of branches/trees down. Just thought I'd let you know in case you want to check your property.

Hasting Highlands Electoral Reform
Attached is presentation document extracted from the Hastings Highlands web site regarding Electoral Reform. This document provides information as to why this issue of Electoral Reform is being raised. Specifically, the inequity between the current wards based on population, since all 3 current wards currently elect two councillors each and the 2014 Eligible Elector Count varies between 3048 (United Townships of Bangor, Wicklow and McClure) and 1483 (Monteagle). Our ward (Herschel), had an Eligible Elector Count of 2581. The document also lists various advantages and disadvantages of the various proposals listed in the comment form which was posted on December 9th.
