2022 09 05 Letter to North Kawartha Council  advising no need to apply for funding (
click Here)
2022 09 06 Council received a staff report from their CAO Solman recommending that North Kawartha request Province to designate our area to be eligible for the DRAO funding which would assist some eligible Jack Lakers..This is what I wrote Council asking be done  July 7th and Mayor would not allow my letter to be placed on the  Council agenda claiming it was REDUNDANT. Troublesome for myself an others to understand how Mayor Amyotte has authority  My leter to Council was  was not REDUNDANT  then but certainly REDUNDANT Sept 6  as Premier Ford's office  through staff advised me on Aug 29 that our  area storm damage assessment have been completed and our area did not qualify for financial assistance !!! it was determined  that most of the damage was "insured" which is factually wrong..
