Carden Township Council

Posted by: loo on Friday, August 17, 2012 - 09:07 PM
General Observations
• There were Pathmasters who looked after certain sections of the road.
• They were always making repairs to the Narrows Bridge. Finally Council decided to ask the County to take it over. There were many meetings about this. James Graham had to go to Toronto about the matter. It also seemed to be in the courts. It was measured to show it was over 300 feet wide which seemed to be in the realm of what the County must look after.
• Statute of Labour – people worked so many days on road?
• Had fence viewers. Pound Keepers
• Always buying scrapers for the roads.
• Names were added to the voters’ list. Presumably these men had reached the age of 21
• Each year it states how much money went to the School Sections
• Each year there was a Court of Revision for changes in assessment of taxes.
• Certain people were appointed Commissioners to repair a certain part of the roads.
• Money was given to The Hospital for Sick Children each year.
• The Muskoka Sanitarium asked for money but did get any.
• Many people were notified to remove their fences off road allowances.
• A County Road System was proposed but his township opposed it.
• Some money was spent getting someone into the House of Refuge.
• Worked with The Trent Valley Canal over bridges and flooding.
