Weed harvester returns

Watch for a return of the weed harvester to Mill Pond in Alexandria July 16 as North Glengarry continues its “aggressive strategy” against Canada Waterweeds (Elodea canadensis).

Regulations prevent the weed removal being carried out before July 15. “If we were to begin earlier, we would risk interrupting the spawning season of the large and small-mouth bass, and other fish that call Mill Pond their home,” the township says.

Tree conservation bylaw proposed

“We feel it is time to begin a conversation about the place of forests and trees in North Glengarry,” says a group of concerned citizens hoping to convince the township to enact a forest conservation bylaw.

The group, who will present its proposal at the March 27 council meeting, suggests the municipality adopt a temporary bylaw that would require anyone clear-cutting more than three acres or felling trees within 20 metres of any waterway to get a permit from the township.

Details in the March 22 edition of The News.
