Tehkummah drain clears court of revision

TEHKUMMAH – The court of revision for the Smeltzer’s Drain expansion project in the Township of Tehkummah convened on June 9 to give drain ratepayers an opportunity to review changes to their assessments as impacted by the drain’s extension.

Four appellants raised concerns with their assessments and the court recommended that two be accepted. The difference in the assessed amounts will be billed to the roads budget.

The township convened a special meeting of council on Friday, June 19 and adopted the court of revision’s recommendations. The drain project plans will next be finalized so construction can begin.
