&/#3&'r#3*&'4 REFUSAL CHARGE A Champlain Township woman will face court next month after she was accused of refusing to provide an alcohol test following a car crash. Police said the 58-year-old refused standard testing and then resisted officers after they arrived at a single-vehicle crash on Valley Street, North Stormont on Thursday afternoon. Judith Wilcox was charged with resist peace officer and failure of refusal to comply with demand and will face court in Cornwall on February 11. – Stephen Jeffery RED REQUEST Alfred-Plantagenet Township will apply to the federal Regional Economic Development (RED) program for funding aid to hire an economic development officer. Council approved sending the RED application during its January 19 meeting. The position, if the funding is approved, will be for a one-year contract term. – Gregg Chamberlain TAX DELAY Champlain Township ratepayers have been given one month’s extension to pay interim tax bills this year. The bill, which ordinarily was due at the end of February, would not be due until March 31 under the change approved at this month’s council meeting. In a statement, the township said the extension would “give homeowners a break after the holiday season”. – Stephen Jeffery NEW SNOW TRUCK Hawkesbury council approved a recom- mendation from administration for a contract with Francis Canada Truck Centre Inc. of Ottawa, for purchase of a made-to-order snow truck in time for the 2022 winter season. The six-wheel truck, when it is assembled and delivered, will feature a snowplow, a salt-and-sand box, and spreading equipment, It will also have a four-season box for use around the municipality outside of the winter period. The company was the sole bidder for the contract at $253,000, excluding HST. Purchase funds will be included in the 2021 municipal budget. – Gregg Chamberlain



The provincial government will provide more than $3 million to municipalities to help them with the road work and other infrastructure needs. Ontario Infrastructure Minister Laurie Scott announced January 25 financial aid for municipal infrastructure needs through the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF). The goal of the $200-million fund is to assist municipalities with their critical repair and upgrade work for local roads, bridges, sewer and water systems. “COVID-19 has created (financial) chal- lenges for everyone, including our municipal partners,” stated Scott in her announcement, adding the fund helps address “critical infrastructure” and also “strengthening local economies, creating jobs, and laying the foundation for our long-term recovery.” The program addresses infrastructure needs in rural regions. OCIF money goes to communities with populations under 100,000. Prescott-Russell will receive a total of $3,052,851 in OCIF funds, with the United Counties of Prescott-Russell getting the largest grant amount of $718,078. The next three largest amounts are $653,336 to Hawkesbury, $633,517 to Russell Township, and $591,090 to the City of Clarence-Rockland. 5IF /BUJPO .VOJDJQBMJUZ XJMM SFDFJWF

East Hawkesbury residents will now be able to participate more in their community’s business during the pan- demic after the first successful use of the municipality’s new virtual meeting setup. “It went well,” said Luc Lalonde, township chief administrator, during an interview following a public meeting for a review of

Le canton de Hawkesbury-Est a réussi le premier test de sa nouvelle organisation de réunions virtuelles avec une réunion publique le 25 janvier sur les révisions proposées aux lignes directrices des règlements municipaux de zonage.

revisions to the municipal zoning bylaw guidelines. The January virtual meeting was by invitation only for individuals or groups who had any concerns or questions about the proposed revisions to the bylaw. The municipality promoted the event through its website. Anyone who wanted to take part in the virtual meeting phoned in advance of the date with their request and were given the online link needed to attend. There were three participants from the public for the event, which Lalonde noted was a good turnout. “That’s more than we usually get in the council room for meetings,” he said. Questions from the public gallery during the January 25 event concerned the

definition of a hobby farm and whether the revised zoning bylaw guidelines would allow dog kennel operations in the township. Com- ments about the virtual meeting setup were positive, Lalonde noted, and a second review meeting of the revised zoning guidelines will take place later in February. Lalonde is optimistic about the new virtual meeting setup for use in allowing township residents to watch council mee- tings in future. He indicated that a link will be available on the municipal website on the date of council meetings so that anyone can watch the proceedings live without having to ask for an invitation. The virtual meeting will also be available for later viewing for anyone unable to watch the session on the date when it is scheduled.

All residents at 18 long-term care homes and six retirement homes had received their first dose. Dr. Roumeliotis said the health unit would receive a tray, or 950 doses, of Pfizer-BioN- Tech vaccines this week after last week’s absence due to a Canada-wide shortage. Moderna vaccines would also be sent to the health unit for use in the northern portion of Akwesasne. Meanwhile, the Casselman testing centre will move from the EOHU’s office to the Hawkesbury General Hospital facility in the town in the coming days. Dr. Roumeliotis said space was needed at the EOHU to set up a vaccination centre for the region. Outbreaks An outbreak at Foyer-St-Jacques Nursing Home in Embrun was declared over on Monday. Residences in Prescott-Russell that continued to be affected included Centre d’accueil Roger-S é guin in Clarence Creek, Manoir Carillon in Chute-à-Blondeau, Rideau Place in Hawkesbury, Valoris-211 Russell Road in Cheney, and Pinecrest Nursing Home in Plantagenet. Only Rideau Place and Valoris had resident cases, with the remainder confined to staff outbreaks. The region There were 109 active cases in the Pres- cott-Russell region on Monday, including 40 in Russell, 26 in Clarence-Rockland, 19 in Hawkesbury, 14 in Alfred-Plantagenet, 4 in Champlain, 4 in The Nation, and 2 in East Hawkesbury. There were none in Casselman.

Prescott-Russell entered February with almost half the number of active cases recorded during the same period in January. There were 109 active cases in the Prescott-Russell region on Monday, com- pared to the 213 reported at the start of last month. The area’s active case number continued to decline after a January 11 high of 254. The wider Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) region recorded 36 new cases over the weekend, 10 of which were detected in Prescott-Russell. There were 377 active cases across the EOHU on Monday, which marked the first time since the start of the year that the region had fewer than 400. EOHU Medical Officer of Health Dr. Paul Roumeliotis said the trend had been en- couraging, but numbers remained high. He said more rapid testing will be introduced at schools as about 30,000 students in the region returned to in-person learning this week. “Testing is part of our toolkit, but testing is not prevention,” he said. “It’s part of the whole approach, which is screening at the door, screening at home, wearing masks, and the physical distancing which is critically important.” Vaccines More than 2500 vaccine doses were ad- ministered in the EOHU area as of Monday.

Dominique Dussault, interim chief admin- istrator, told council that the planning depart- ment is occupied with finishing the revised Community Improvement Plan (CIP) for the municipality. She noted that the department could investigate and provide council with a report on the procedure for heritage property designation after staff finish the CIP. Council members agreed with that sug- gestion. Mayor Paula Assaly also noted that property owners need to remember that there is a difference between a building or property designated a municipal heritage site and one like the Macdonnell-Williamson House near Chute-à-Blondeau in East Hawkesbury Town- ship, which is part of the Ontario Heritage Trust. No significant changes are allowed to the exterior or interior of that building that would affect its overall heritage value.

Some property owners in Hawkesbury wonder what the process is for declaring a building a heritage site. Councillor Antonios Tsourounakis brought the issue up during the January 25 council session after receiving queries from resi- dents about how they could access federal or provincial aid grants for heritage buildings. “There’s a lot of information out there,” said Councillor Robert Lefebvre, citing the Ontario Heritage Act as one example. “But there are also a lot of processes involved. It (heritage designation) is a very tricky area to navigate.” Lefebvre noted that Hawkesbury may have once had its own procedure for declaring a local building or property as a heritage site but he was not certain if it was still in force. Les édifices historiques comme la maison Macdonnell-Williamson dans le canton de Hawkesbury-Est sont maintenus dans leur état d’origine selon les consignes de la Fiducie du patrimoine ontarien. Le conseil municipal de Hawkesbury a reçu des demandes de certains propriétaires locaux concernant la procédure à suivre pour faire désigner un bâtiment ou un terrain comme site patrimonial. —photo d’archives

Five Recommendations “The COVID-19 pandemic placed a spot- light on a number of pre-existing challenges that have been pervasive in Ontario’s long- term care sector for many years,” stated the EOWC report brief. “The EOWC is committed to working closely with the province and other key stakeholders in order to create a world-class long-term care system.” The EOWC’s five recommendations for improving LTCs include increased direct care funding for the facilities to meet the provincial care model goal; changing to a per-bed funding formula “to increase clarity, efficiency, and transparency” of the funding process; increase provincial capital funding and make it more predictable for municipal budget planning for LTCs, and provide ongo- ing capital maintenance aid; promote and support resource sharing between LTCs; and improve the long-term care processes to increase efficiency and effectiveness. EOWC officials presented the report to Merrilee Fullerton, long-term care minister, for discussion during the Rural Ontario Municipal Association (ROMA) virtual con- ference, January 25 and 26. The report is available on the EOWC website at http:// sustainability/economic-briefing-notes. aspx.

Eastern Ontario has five suggestions to the provincial government for long-term improvement of Ontario’s senior care facilities. The Eastern Ontario Wardens Caucus (EOWC) released its two-part review of municipally owned and operated long-term care facilities within the region. The report includes five recommendations to the pro- vincial government for dealing with some of the issues and problems for long-term care facilities (LTCs) that have been in the spotlight during the pandemic. “Long-term care is a key priority for the EOWC, and EOWC Members are vital part- ners in the delivery of long-term care,” stated EOWC Chair Debbie Robinson. “When I think of long-term care and how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our residents and families, we must ensure that systemic issues that have been identified across the sector are addressed. The EOWC has demonstrated that we are a willing partner and are able to provide on-the-ground leader- ship to implement changes.” There are 15 LTCs in Eastern Ontario that are owned and operated by municipalities that are EOWC members. These LTCs have a combined total of 2,386 licensed beds for residents living at those facilities because they are seniors or are people in need of long-term specialized care.

Les établissements de soins de longue durée (SLD) publics comme la Résidence Prescott- Russell ont dû faire face à un certain nombre de problèmes de soins créés par la pandémie. Le Eastern Ontario Wardens Caucus a présenté au gouvernement provincial son propre

rapport, analysant les problèmes des SLD que ses municipalités membres gèrent et proposant cinq recommandations pour aider à résoudre ces problèmes. —photo d’archives




transportation fund grant for a four-year pilot regional transit project. PR Transpo began operations in October 2019 but shut down in spring 2020 because of the pandemic. The regional transit system restarted in September and shut down again in October because of low ridership due to the second wave of the pandemic. The province will not let the UCPR use the transportation grant for any other purposes. Lavigne’s research into on-cal transit service may offer a way to maintain PR Transpo on a limited but cost-effective basis. “It’s not an Uber and it’s not a taxi ser- vice,” Lavigne said, regarding the concept. “It’s still a bus service. They (buses) don’t pick you up at your home. They pick you up at a stop.” Desoronto, a town in Hastings County, has an on-call transit service for its rural area. The town has the same population size and general geography as Prescott- Russell and Lavigne’s research will include details on how that system operates. Lavigne hopes to have a more detailed report to present to the advisory commit- tee and UCPR council at a later date.

Le parc de la Confédération pourrait servir de piste de ski de fond publique pendant l’hiver pour les résidents de Hawkesbury et les visiteurs de la ville.

PR Transpo may be in limbo again but the regional transit project is not dead. Carole Lavigne, economic develop- ment and tourism director for the United Counties of Prescott-Russell (UCPR), is looking into feasibility of transforming the PR Transpo system into an on-call regional transit service. Her efforts have the support of UCPR Warden Pierre Leroux and the mayors sitting on the economic development advisory committee. “It’s great to have a plan,” said Leroux, “and I look forward to seeing the (final) plan come back.” Lavigne presented a preliminary report on the proposal to the advisory committee last year. The report included results of two computer simulations of how a successful on-call regional transit system could work. “We now need a few actual tests,” Lavi- gne said, during a later phone interview. “This would be something that we could try for six months or so.” The UCPR received a provincial


encourage more use of the municipal park. Most council members expressed inter- est in the idea but also doubt that it would be feasible because of the park’s location alongside the Ottawa River. The main objec- tion was that the park is too exposed during winter and that skiers would suffer from the cold winds blowing off the river. Several councilors also noted that residents have Old Mill Park and other neighbourhood parks available for outdoor recreation activities during winter. Councillor Tsourounakis indicated during a later interview that he will continue to pursue the idea of ski track at Confedera- tion Park. He will check into what type of temporary windbreaks might be feasible for the park and also the park’s potential to serve as the site for a winter festival for Hawkesbury similar to Ottawa’s annual Winterlude.

A suggestion for a public cross-country ski track at Confederation Park got a cool reception at Hawkesbury council but the councillor who suggested the idea is not giving up on it. “I still think it would be a cost-effective way to give citizens something to do,” said Councillor Antonios Tsourounakis, during a phone interview. During the January 19 council session, Tsourounakis suggested the municipality look into the feasibility of creating a cross- country ski track that would circle around Confederation Park. He indicated such a track would cost little to develop and main- tain, would provide a free recreation oppor- tunity for residents dealing with limited travel options during the pandemic, and also help
