However, every time you wish to have a burn, 613-267-2596 X2 must be informed. To check to see if there is currently a Burn Ban, listen to the automated message on the above number. ***
TVT is inviting residents to a Public Consultation on Climate Target and Actions on the second date September 21. See Calendar for details.

2019 Season Report
The County has finished mowing along both sides of our section of Bolingbroke Road and volunteers have been pulling plants that subsequently appear as well as some of those thriving beyond the mowed area. Garbage has been picked up also. Many thanks to the volunteers who have been working away in the particularly miserable conditions (temperature, humidity and flies) this year. We cannot eradicate the parsnips but we can reduce their numbers so that the County will not spray. And this was done!
Below are some pictures taken at the end of last August. We’ll see if we can add to them this year!
After three years of no spraying, the flowers are returning on our section of CR 36. Do you see the bee?
