Trent Lakes Mayor Janet Clarkson believes that a key to economic development for the Township of Trent Lakes has been presented to them on a silver platter by the federal and provincial governments and their “Trail Town” initiative.
When I grew up in western Canada the four most important buildings in every small town were the school, the curling rink, the Wheat Board silo and the hockey arena. If anyone of those facilities closed it could be the death knell of that community.
While there are no Wheat Board silos in Ontario the importance of the arena, school and curling club are just the same. They are a sign of community vigor and health.
In a far reaching interview with the Promoter Trent Lakes Mayor Janet Clarkson shared where the Township was on the issue of roads/road repairs, homelessness in Peterborough County, spiraling policing costs and the vexing issue of Air B and B rentals gone wrong.
Observers of Trent Lakes Council are concerned by the apparent grid lock that is currently splitting Council into two very well defined voting blocs.
