“If they want extras, they will have to pay for it.” Councilors voiced their displeasure with learning of yet more changes requested by paramedics for the yet unbuilt Fire/ Paramedic stations. Council was told that oversights during the planning phase of the building were to blame for an added $58,000, 50 per cent of which the United Counties of Prescott-Russell (UCPR) hoped Clarence-Rockland would cover. i8FXFSFNBEFBXBSFPGUIFN PWFS - sights) approximately three to four weeks ago, that there was a shortfall in the actual costs,” said Helen Collier, Chief Administra- tive Officer (CAO). “They (United Counties of Prescott and Russell) asked for us to cover the cost because we’re making the building.”

Changes requested so far have included a punch clock, wiring to illuminate a sign and a more elaborate eye washing machine. “The Counties approved what was there,” started Desjardins, “and now they come back saying they want the lockers bigger.” “To which I reply, too bad, so sad, you signed off on it, that is the deal,” added ward two councilor Mario Zanth. Council decided to approve the changes, estimated at $58,000, granted that the counties of Prescott-Russell pay them.

Kelly Robertson, owner of Robertson Family Pet Products in Rockland , was recently moved by the plight of the growing number of homeless individuals in Ottawa. She therefore organized an event which aimed at collecting clothing, blankets and toiletries, on March 9. She then went out and distributed the goods to the homeless. It was Robertson’s first but not last attempt at doing an event of this kind. She is pictured, on the left, with young Samantha Campbell, Dona Robin and Mathieu Chakra, who helped her with her event. — photo Annie Lafortune
