The Ministry of Natural Resources and the quarry people will address concerns about the proposed Young quarry on Bass Lane, at a public meeting at the Bobcaygeon Legion Branch 239 on Friday, Jan. 16, from 6 to 8 pm.  


Increased traffic and excavating below the water table  are two big concerns.  The municipality feels limited in what they can do due to the Crown Land issue ( almost all the big quarries in Trent Lakes are on Crown Land).  

Elaine Fritz believes the municipality can pass a by law forbidding any business from operating or extracting below the water table.  She gave council a letter today regarding this issue.
