Plan elicited strong opposition from area residents

TAY TOWNSHIP – Tay Township has reversed a plan to sell several park and waterfront properties after facing strong opposition from residents.
A notice appeared last month on the municipality’s website and in The Mirror regarding a proposal to declare surplus and sell several parcels of land, which raised the ire of some residents.
At their Jan. 27 meeting, councillors voted to leave all park and waterfront properties exactly as they are, said Mayor Scott Warnock.
“We had an excellent turnout from residents right across the municipality,” he said. “It’s always great when the community comes forward and makes their feelings known.”
Port McNicoll resident Robert Codd, who attended the meeting, said he was pleased by the outcome.
