Recently the Band’s Land Management office sent out their 2020 brochure along with this year’s service fee invoice.
Originally we expected a letter would be sent before Christmas to all land-lease cottage owners with information pertaining to a number of important issues, most important among them a description of the Band’s expectations re: septic systems code compliance. Information on septic system compliance and a number of additional items is included in the 2020 brochure.
The brochure also lists times of operation for the Works Department land fill. The brochure mailed to everyone had an error in that it listed times for two Saturdays. The second Saturday listed should be Friday with operating hours of 8 to noon. There is a corrected version of the brochure posted here.
Please also note that items that can be recycled are listed in the Brochure and remain unchanged from last year. Last year the Band adopted a policy of not stopping to collect recycle boxes if it was obvious that non-recycle items had been included – most notable would be cardboard. So we ask that you, family members and friends using your cottage take extra care to include only recycle materials in your blue boxes. We expect the same policy to continue this year.
We have received a number of questions about the size of the increase in service fees this year.
Previously, SCOI has requested that the Band increase the service fees in smaller increments each year rather than periodically implementing a larger fee increase. We will be making enquiries to see why this is not being done and try to get some sense of what contributes to the size of the increase.
The Band offices are closed now for the next 3 weeks due to COVID19.
Once we have more information we will relay that to you. In the meantime you should submit the service fee by the deadline.
Amendment to Dump Hours on Brochure
Please note that there has been a correction to the dump hours on the 2020 brochure since it was mailed.
Reminder: Service Fees are due by April 1st, 2020.
The 2020 Services and Updates Brochure has been mailed to all leaseholders from the Band.
- Once again there will be no heavy garbage pickup. Large items can be delivered to the dump and the fees for these items have also not changed since last year.
- Items than can be blue box recycled are listed in the brochure and remain the same as last year.
The list of recyclables is also available here.
Unfortunately many cottagers and their guests fail to limit the items they put in the recycle bin which in turn causes added time (delay and cost) to the Band’s recycle pickup schedule. Please adhere to the list and please also advise you family and friends to do the same.
- Please also make note of and preferably post in a visible location, the Cancon Security, OPP and Fire Department phone numbers that are listed in the brochure.
These numbers are also available by clicking Contact / Contact Security from the main menu at the top this website.
For emergencies please call 911.
