MODL: Councillor Removes Street Lights; Staff Review Policy

The councillor for Dayspring and area is taking a bit of heat after removing six street lights along the Leary Fraser Road. Frank Fawson says he was under the influence the Municipality of Lunenburg's policy allowed for a 10% reduction or addition of existing street lights in a fiscal year. However, the move concerns the LaHave Manor Corporation, which is located near Fawson's home. They fear for the safety of their 66 clients and employees at the facility with the loss of lighting. Fawson says the lights have bothered him for many years.

The LaHave Manor Corporation is looking to have the lights reinstalled. Municipal staff will issue a report back to council providing options for a process to be followed.
