Although much is still up in the air, Boissevain-Morton started the long process of replacing the community’s lagoon.
On March 25, council held a public meeting to lay out their preliminary plans. As the COVID-19 situation is in place, there were only a few spaces available for the public to sit in the Council Chambers, in order to deal with social distancing concerns. However, the meeting was available on live stream and through conference call so everyone would have a chance to comment.
The lagoon situation has been many years in the making. As Head of Council Judy Swanson said, the municipality has not met the regulations in the existing lagoon on the southwest end of Boissevain for many years.
