Congratulations Fire Fighter Matthew Younge

On May 11, 2018, the Ontario Provincial Police and Rideau Lakes Fire Fighters responded to a submerged vehicle at a boat launch in North Crosby Township.  The driver was trapped in the vehicle approximately 50 metres from shore.

The police officer and fire fighter Matthew Younge worked together and entered the water and were able to retrieve the female and bring her to shore.

Matthew was recently awarded the Ontario Award for Bravery at the OPP Honours and Awards ceremony held in Kingston.  We are proud of you, Matthew!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS presentation open to the public -Monday @ 11:00

The Village partnered with the Township of Wollaston-Coe Hill (Hastings County) earlier this year to participate in the First Impressions Community Exchange (FICE).  This programme is sponsored by the provincial government through OMAFRA.

FICE is a program that has participants visit the other community and record their impressions to offer the host community a new perspective on the strengths and weaknesses from an outsider’s perspective.

Please join us at 11:00 on Monday, September 17 in Town Hall.

Westport Council 2017/18

Although there are still a few months until the new Council begins in December, I wanted a photo that included CAO/Clerk Paul Snider and Treasurer Anne-Marie Koiner.  You have both added your experiences, professionalism and enthusiasm to making Town Hall a more responsive and friendlier place for the public.  Thank you both!

Watch for our Christmas photo that will include the new Council and all Village staff!



Town Hall is disappointed that the canteen did not open last night at the arena.  Over the past couple of months, it has put out a tender for the lease of the canteen.  Staff contacted local businesses to ensure that the tender was well publicized.  There were no offers.   Next, the Village advertised to hire canteen employees and the Village would run the canteen.  Again, no response.

Drink and snack vending machines will be in the arena in the next couple of weeks, however that has also been a slow process through no fault of Town Hall.

If you have any suggestions or wish to be involved with the Arena Canteen, please contact CAO Paul Snider @ psnider@villageofwestport.ca or 613-273-2191.
