United Soils Management’s  Fill Permit application to restore the Lee Sand & Gravel Pit back to farmland with a woodlot was approved by Town Council on Tuesday, December 3rd. We will gradually be saying good-bye to the hole in the ground and hello farmland.

We must thank United Soils Management for taking all possible measures to ensure that the Lee Sand & Gravel Pit Restoration Project will have minimum daily impact on the community and virtually no impact on weekends. Mr. Alec Cloke, his team of experts and the Town Staff are all to be commended for working together diligently to develop a very comprehensive set of rules governing the restoration of a pit operation.

Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Alec Cloke owner of United Soils management knows this is a man of his word whose commitment to the communities in which he carries out his business is nothing short of amazing.

Here is just a partial list of organizations and events that United Soils graciously sponsors in our community. They include Food Bank, The Legion, Local skating club, Local Hockey, Winter Carnival, and the Fall Fair. In addition they sponsor at least four contests a year for kids that require them to think about Canada and/or their families.

In conclusion United Soils Management is not only setting the Gold Standard in Pit Restoration but also the Gold Standard in being a great corporate citizen. In other words a great addition to our community.
