Art, competitions, sewer system make news
Trout Lake News for Feb. 28
February 26, 2013
By theRemember to attend the community council meeting on March 6 at 7 p.m. at the school in the home economics room for the discussion of the possibility of constructing a sewer system in the area of Trout Lake zoned rural center. There are flyers placed around town in key spots that contain a map of the rural center area. The proposal raises interesting questions such as: what are the implications of building a sewer system; where would it be placed; where would it discharge; what organization would manage it and how would it impact the lives of property owners in the zoned area? Attend the meeting and bring your questions. This is the chance to learn more about the proposal and possibly influence the content.
