AMARANTH SUPPORTS PETITION TO INSTALL GUARD RAIL ALONG GRAND RIVER IN WALDEMAR 3/8/2018 10:05:10 AM
Wednesday (Mar. 7) marked two weeks since three year-old Kaden Young was taken by the flooded Grand River.
While many were out continuing their search for the little boy, residents were at Amaranth Town Hall with a petition to have a guard rail installed along the river in Waldemar.
Trish Hamilton spoke on behalf of the over 1,000 people who have signed the petition.
Council supported the request and staff will bring a report back to council in April. Mayor Don MacIver says this has been a tragedy that has touched everyone and is overwhelmed by the help from many volunteers in the community.
Deputy Mayor Jane Aultman added that the Public Works Departments all across Dufferin County are working together to implement better road block equipment.
She adds that at the recent Upper Grand Watershed Committee meeting, they discussed that the water levels of the Grand River the night three year-old Kaden Young went missing was the highest they have ever been since the GRCA started recording water levels.
