- Oct. 9 - Garnish Community Center - 8 AM - 8 PM - Municipal By
Election - An election to find a
seventh Councillor will take place at the Garnish Community Center
this coming Friday. The three names on the ballot are Jessie
Ann Marsh, Corina Thorne and Ed Walsh. There will be no
advance poll but there is a vote by proxy process for anyone
who is unable to vote on Friday. The voter must see Ruth at
the Town Hall during business hours before 4 PM Thursday to complete
a short form. All eligible residents are encouraged to vote.
ATVs ALLOWED - At least one teen age boy has decided to turn our
Long Ridge Walking Trail into an ATV Trail. Council is working
with Dept. of Tourism to spend significant amounts of funding to upgrade
that trail and to connect it to Frenchman's Cove. Damage done by ATVs
will only delay that and increase the cost of upgrading. We know who is
responsible. We have pictures. All are advised that the Long Ridge Trail
up Cemetery Road and on the other end at Deep Water Point are for
walking only. ATVs not permitted.
Oct. 9 - Municipal Election Day
- Three candidates have been nominated for the vacant

vote. Check with Ruth at Town Hall to see if you are eligible.
