recently, District Council voted to eliminate fluoride from the municipal water supplies. In November, they modified their decision to allow each of the 6 towns and townships that constitute the District of Muskoka to decide the question for their own area of responsibility. In the Township of Muskoka Lakes, this is largely related to the towns of Bala and Port Carling.

The growing use of bubblers on the Muskoka Lakes can cause damage to our lakes and present a safety risk, particularly if they are used excessively.
At the recent Committee of the Whole, Jim Boyd (a director of the Muskoka Ratepayers' Association) made a presentation on behalf of the association concerning their history, the effects of their use, and suggestions that Council might adopt to ensure proper usage.
The presentation can be found by following this link - Presentation to the Committee of the Whole re Bubbler Systems.
Our annual general meeting was held on Saturday, July 20, 2013 at the Port Carling Community Centre. Doors opened at 9:30 AM with coffee and cookies from 9:30 to 10 and the meeting commencing at 10 AM.
Guest speakers this year included Mike Provan from One Muskoka and a representative from Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare. At the conclusion of the meeting there was a draw for door prizes which included tickets on the Peerless and on the Muskoka Steamships Pirate Cruise.
