Farm 911 Emily Project Official Unveiling
The “Farm 911 Emily Project” had its official North Dundas unveiling on June 24th at 10489 Shaw Road, Mountain, which was the first location a blade was installed in the Township back in March.
Mayor Tony Fraser, Deputy Mayor Al Armstrong and Councillors Gary Annable, John Thompson and Tyler Hoy were present for the unveiling, as was Jacqueline Pemberton, Zone 11 Director for the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, Marty Derks, President of the Dundas Federation of Agriculture and Jim Shaw.
SDG Counties has provided $5,000 to the municipality to cover 50% of the cost of these signs to property owners on a first-come first-served basis while funds last. Thus far there have been 29 Farm 911 blades installed in North Dundas at a reduced price of $37.50.
We encourage all those looking to have a Farm 911 blade installed to apply soon. Just over 100 blades are left at the reduced rate – the full cost per blade being $75 which includes issuing the number, creating the blade and installation.
The new blades were approved with a larger size, an increase from a 5” x 20” blade to a 8” x 25” blade. This new design will be used for all civic numbers in the Township and not just for farm fields, to ensure consistency across North Dundas. The larger size allows for better visibility for all road users and emergency services.
Application forms are available at www.northdundas.com and at our office.
