    Enhanced Security at Landfills

    The Township of Algonquin Highlands has issued the following notice:

    The Township of Algonquin Highlands takes workplace safety very seriously and is committed to providing work spaces that are safe and harassment-free. 

    Sadly, incidents of worker harassment have been on the rise, particularly at our Waste Disposal Sites. There have been increased incidents of illegal dumping, failure to pay applicable fees, dumping without authorization, damage to property, theft, and other by-law infractions. In an increasing number of situations, attempts by landfill workers to manage these situations are met with verbal abuse, harassment and threats. This is unacceptable.

    Waste disposal site rules and regulations exist to protect workers, protect the public and to protect the environment. It is required that every user of municipal waste disposal sites does so with respect and in accordance with rules and regulations.

    To help ensure Algonquin Highlands’ waste disposal sites and workers are safe and secure, the Township has reached out to the OPP to conduct increased patrols at the sites.  In the next few months the public may see an increased police presence at Township of Algonquin Highlands waste disposal sites.  

    Landfill workers have been authorized to note or photograph the license plates of those behaving badly and the OPP will be asked to follow up.

    For the safety and security of all, please keep in mind these key points:

    • All workers are entitled to a workplace free of harassment;
    • Any person who is abusive or disrespectful to staff may be refused service;
    • Access to waste disposal sites can be suspended, restricted or terminated if rules and regulations are violated

    Greetings Raven Lakers!

    We would like to draw your attention to a request from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry in response to our Application for Crown Tenure at the Landing.

    The MNRF is looking for comments on our application to lease a narrow strip of land along the shoreline at the centre of the Landing for the purposes of installing a suitable number of fingers docks to meet the needs of all water access residents of the Raven Lake.

    The objective of our Application is to satisfy the MNRF's concerns about our lack of legal tenure currently, mitigate potential liabilities arising from the existing stick docks, and establish the right of water access residents to leave their boats at the landing.

    Physically, the change at the landing will be limited to the installation of the new fingers slips for boats.  It is anticipated that there will be no change to the actual use or traffic at the Landing.

    You can download and read the MNRF Public Notice here.

    Looking forward to seeing you at the Lake!

    Best regards,
    Scott Lewis

    Total Fire Ban now in effect for all of Haliburton County

    The Fire Chiefs of Haliburton County have issued a Total Fire Ban which will encompass the entire area of Haliburton County (Municipality of Dysart et al, Township of Minden Hills, Township of Algonquin Highlands and Township of Highlands East).

    Effective immediately Haliburton County is under a total fire ban. Dry condition, high heat, and the lack of forecasted precipitation has led to an extreme fire risk. All permits are cancelled, all open fires and campfires are prohibited during the fire ban.

    If you have questions or concerns please contact
    Mike Cavanagh, Fire Chief
    Township of Algonquin Highlands

    Good news.  The latest issue of the Minden Times reports that the Algonquin Highlands council  has fixed a  tax rate (for AH, County and education) that is only a 0.5% increase over last year.
