The petition to put up a fence along the Magnetawan River in Burk’s Falls is on the agenda for the next council meeting. Burk’s Falls council says a delegation request has been made for the September 23rd meeting. There have been indications that council had received a similar request in the past. Reeve Cathy Still says there was controversy over a gate on the Heritage River Walk that could have affected the snowmobilers, but despite other reports nothing else has come before Council. Still says there are many factors to consider with this request and will be able to discuss those factors at the meeting.
Burk’s Falls Council has released a statement saying they are heartbroken by the loss of Korbin South. Korbin died after falling into the Magnetawan River on Sunday August 24th.
