*Nov.10 – County opts for change and reduces council

November 10, 2015

Prince Edward County has changed its course and voted to downsize council,

a decision the mayor says will be challenged before the Ontario Municipal Board.

A week ago the committee of the whole carried a motion that would keep the status quo – 10 wards and a 16 member horseshoe.

After a lengthy debate and series of recorded votes Tuesday night, council approved reducing to nine wards with a 14 member council – a plan that received minimal support during recent public consultations.

(9 Councillors for the plan: Jamie Forrester, Steve Graham, David Harrison, Treat Hull, Janice Maynard, Brad Nieman, Dianne O’Brien; Roy Pennell and Lenny Epstein. 7 Councillors against: Gordon Fox, Kevin Gale, Bill Roberts, Barry Turpin, Jim Dunlop, Steven Ferguson and Robert Quaiff)…….Read more at

*Oct. 28 – Stinson Block Road Fire

October 28, 2015

Around 6:15 p.m, firefighters were called to Stinson Block Road, where a vacant barn was fully engulfed.

The barn was destroyed and crews remained on scene dousing hot spots.

The investigation will continue.

The cause of a fire that destroyed an empty barn near Consecon last night will be listed as “undetermined.”

Prince Edward County Fire Chief Scott Manlow says the old barn was burned to the ground and there was little hope of finding a cause.
