Bancroft Council has scheduled a public meeting about proposed boating restrictions on Clark Lake.

A meeting will be held to let the public know about its intention to restrict boat access on the lake, which is the source of the town’s drinking water. Councillor Mary Kavanagh says this is all part of the process.

Kavanagh says the main concern is that boats travelling from lake to lake could cause zebra mussels to spread.

Kavanagh says the town has received the appropriate government permission to restrict boat access on the lake. It is also identified as a protected lake in Hastings County’s draft official plan.

A public meeting will be held on the subject at Club 580 at 6:30pm on December 4th to get feedback from Bancroft residents.
