are in frail health,” Leclair said, adding that themedical transport service often involves taking a client to clinics or appointments with specialists in either Ottawa or Montréal. Drivers do receive a small remuneration based on mileage to help cover some of their own expense with using their vehicle. All of the mayors on council agreed that the agency’s expense situation should get consideration during discussions later this year for the 2017 counties budget. Mayors Gary Barton of Champlain Township and François St-Amour of The NationMunicipality suggested that counties council consider allocating a further $5,000 in the budget for PRCS. “The service is a very good service,” said Mayor Barton, “and we use it a lot in my area.” “I think they (PRCS) could use the $5,000 to go ahead with all their planning,” said St-Amour. Leclair emphasized that PRCS was not asking for any further allocations in the counties current budget. Stéphane Parisien, UCPR chief administrator, also reminded the mayors that the UCPR has designated $30,000 in the 2016 budget towards assisting the agency with covering an additional ope- ration expense with hiring of a new staffer. “My recommendation is that we look at this (funding support) in the 2017 budget,” Parisien said, adding that PRCS has always provided detailed audited information on its operations when it does present the UCPR with a funding support request.

birds chirping in the nearby woods, the sound of rushing water, and the tranquility that most of us only find in cottage living. Now, with eQ’s anticipated release of their newest and most exciting development, Clarence Crossing in Rockland, your dreams can become a reality. The first village is almost complete and is selling out fast. Occupancy is expected for sometime this summer. With the ever growing urban intensification in the downtown core, many families and retirees are heading outside of the city’s centre for a more serene lifestyle – one that incorporates all the major amenities with your own personal oasis. Clarence Crossing is the lifestyle community in Rockland that so many people have been waiting for. These beautifully designed homes are surrounded by nature and embraced by Clarence Creek and The Ottawa River. Spectacular scenery, first- class social and recreational amenities, and pathways gently winding through the community are all in your backyard. June 4th and 5th marked the grand opening of three new models at Clarence Crossing. The Alexander is a 50’ single- family bungalow home with 1848 sq.ft. of living space with an optional sunroom. The Dumont, a 42’ single-family bungalow, offers a spacious 2020 sq.ft. of living space including the optional finished rec room in the basement. Lastly, the Augusta is an attached bungalow with 1418 sq.ft. with an optional sunroom. All three models include spacious master bedrooms with walk-in closets and the option for an ensuite bathroom. The open- concept designs come with a breakfast bar and modern finishes throughout. Clarence Crossing is only a short drive from the city and offers homes at a significantly lower price than the city suburbs. The Foxwood collection condos start as low as $297,900; the attached bungalows start at $286,900, and the single-family bungalows start at $379,900. By moving out of the city, buyers get the space but save thousands on the purchase price. The celebration continues throughout the month of June, which means buyers can take advantage of some spectacular incentives. Buyers of the single-family models will receive $25,000 to spend in the décor centre or the money can be put toward the cost of the house. Buyers of condos will receive $10,000 and the townhomes will receive $15,000. The money can all be spent in one place, or you can split it up as you

Themayors on counties council are willing to consider some extra financial support for a regional non-profit agency which helps support shut-ins and others in Prescott- Russell. The question is whether or not there is any wiggle room available in the current counties budget or if the matter has to wait until talks begin for next year’s budget. Sylvie Leclair, executive director for Pres- cott-Russell Community Services (PRCS), provided the United Counties of Prescott- Russell (UCPR) council with a verbal sum- mary report May 25 on the non-profit social service agency’s extensive support programs and services for residents in the region.The UCPR 2016 budget features an allocation of $30,000 extra to assist PRCS this year with an increase in its own operations budget through hiring of an extra staff member. Leclair cited the PRCS Meals on Wheels andmedical transport programs as examples of the growing demand for the agency’s va- rious services. Both programs depend on volunteer drivers to either deliver prepared healthy meals to clients who are shut-ins or to provide a shuttle service to medical appointments for people who do not have their own vehicle, may not have family who can drive them to their appointments, and may be on a fixed income and unable to afford the cost of a taxi. “These (services) are often for people who

Le maire d’Alfred-Plantagenet, Fernand Dicaire, se demande si le gouvernement fédéral ne serait pas plus apte à assurer un avenir quelconque à la propriété du campus d’Alfred. M. Dicaire a évoqué une telle possibi- lité lors d’une récente discussion entre le député fédéral de Glengarry-Prescott-Rus- sell, Francis Drouin, et les Comtés unis de Prescott et Russell, au sujet de la phase deux
