Parking Lot Closer to Reality

Deseronto - Deseronto Town Council last night pushed the new community parking lot a step closer to completion with the passing of a bylaw to execute and complete a quit claim deed in favor of Evan J. Gardiner [Gardner] and Ernest Luck for the property between Hudson's Mill and the rear of Jackson's Hardware Store.

The two main street businessmen have been planning a free parking area for local shoppers for about a year, but the plans could not materialize until this additional land was acquired to provide adequate space for proper entrances and exits.

During the session with Mayor Harry Sweetnam presiding, the resignation of Councillor William House, who had moved to Ajax, was accepted.

The streets committee, headed by Councillor Clayton Brooks, is preparing for the winter months. Councillor Brooks reported the purchase of 400 additional feet of snow fence.

Attention was also directed to the new ruling of the department of transport calling for the installation of special blinking lights on all vehicles used for snow removal.
