Nine Years Of Community Persistence Yields Results

On Friday May 11th the house at 18 Coultice Drive was removed from the property. What happened?

Last year the MLRA was contacted through our website by a very concerned member of the public.  The party involved had seen pictures of a house for rent on VRBO and were drawn in by the beauty of Musselman’s Lake and wanted to spend the weekend away.  What they found when they arrived was a house occupied by numerous families, no running water and no hydro. The prospective renters were appalled at the living conditions and reached out to the MLRA for help.

The MLRA in turn contacted our local Councillor Maurice Smith to see what the Town could do.  As it turned out the Town was very familiar with the owner of this property as there had been numerous by-law infractions with police also involved over a span of many years.

Our Councillor knew that intervention was needed immediately and had the Fire Prevention staff involved to assess the safety of the situation. Using their expertise they deemed the house unfit for occupancy.

After nine long years of the residents in the area having put up with everything that has gone on at number 18 Coultice, with the combined resources of the Fire, Police, By-law departments and Town Staff working so hard behind the scenes, an uninhabitable house owned by someone who felt the rules did not apply to him, has been taken down. Lets hope it’s a fresh start for the residents of the area.

Sometimes it is easy to get frustrated with the speed that the Town moves, but the determination of  Councillor Maurice Smith  to keep pushing the ball forward and through the court system is greatly appreciated.

A big THANK YOU goes out to Councillor Maurice Smith, our Fire Dept.and Police, By-law Dept., and Town Staff for a job well done!
