effort in Volunteering for the many Committees and Projects within Rideau
Lakes Township. You, as a Volunteer show everyday through your actions,
that you truly care about the area in which you live. Volunteering can be
very time consuming or may be just a few minutes here and there, but every
time someone takes the time to lend a hand, it is reducing the work load for
everyone involved. Council would like to say Thank You for your time,
energy, knowledge, generous support and for enriching the Community in which
you live and the Township of Rideau Lakes as a whole.

Highway 15 Improvement - Recommendation from Council
Council has passed a recommendation that the Ministry of Transport revert to their original 2007 plan for the section of Highway 15 where it intersects with County Road 42. The original 2007 plan would have considerably improved the level
of visibility and safety to our residents crossing over Highway 15, the current plan does not.
Council also requested that local residents who have an interest in this intersection, directly send a letter to Minister Kathleen Wynne (firstname.lastname@example.org), Ontario Minister of Transportation.
