TIGNISH -- Tignish finance committee chair Ed Gallant wants to revisit a 2011 engineering report to see if the proposed plan for the community’s lagoon is still viable.
“I think we need to keep moving forward,” Gallant suggested to fellow councilors. He said the report needs to be looked at again to see what the next step should be.
Council chair Allan McInnis proposed setting up a lagoon committee early in the New Year to take a fresh look at what needs to be done.
Gallant agreed to sit on the committee. He suggested one of the biggest concerns the committee will have to tackle is acquisition of land for a new lagoon. McInnis, however, suspected there might still be room to maneuver with the old system, suggesting there are less people currently served on the central sewer than indicated in the 2011 report.
