Landfill Expansion Signing

Regional | by Robyn Garvey  

Brockton, Hanover sign agreement with Saugeen Ojibway to move expansion ahead.

It's a significant day for Hanover and Brockton.

The Mayors from the two municipalities participated in a special signing ceremony with the Saugeen Ojibway Nation on Monday morning at the Saugeen First Nations Band office.

The agreement recognizes the completion of the First Nation peer review for the expansion of the Hanover Walkerton landfill.

The official signing is one of the final steps needed by the Ministry of Environment in order for the project top proceed.

The agreement also guarantees ongoing consultation with the First Nation to ensure its land and water are not negatively affected by the expansion.

Brockton Mayor David Inglis and Hanover Mayor Kathi Maskell also signed  over a 67 thousand dollar cheque to cover the cost of the peer review.

Both Inglis and Maskell say they are pleased the two year review is complete.

The shared municipal landfill promises to provide Hanover and Walkerton with about 30 more years of landfill space.

By the time all is said and done -- the final landfill expansion bill will be about 6.6 million dollars.
