Restrictions needed to protect future of airport

The future of development around the Kincardine airport will be determined through GPS mapping.
Kincardine council agreed, Sept. 3, to use a GPS approach system for navigation at the aerodrome. The airport governance committee also suggested height restrictions around the runways to ensure development won’t interfere with flight plans.

"If we want to protect the airport, we need to have this in place," said councillor Ron Hewitt. "I know it won't always be easy."


Hospital has a future, says Mitchell

By Kiel Edge

Huron‑Bruce MPP Carol Mitchell says Kincardine’s hospital is in no danger of closing, despite recent service cuts.
Mitchell met with a group of Kincardine councillors û Ron Hewitt, Ken Craig, Randy Roppel and mayor Larry Kraemer û and CAO John deRosenroll during August’s AMO conference in Ottawa. During the meeting, Mitchell reassured the delegation that Kincardine’s hospital will be staying open.

"All‑in‑all, it was an excellent meeting," Kraemer told council Sept. 3. "We got the information we needed and (discussed) as much as we could."

The meeting, which lasted 70 minutes, also included a discussion on council’s upcoming meeting with various health care stakeholders. Mitchell said she supported the idea of the meeting and would likely attend. She also suggested inviting South Bruce Grey Health Centre CEO Paul Davies and SBGHC board chairperson John Haggerty to take part in the discussions.
