BIA Ask For Town Help to Cure Parking Woes
Wednesday, April 16, 2014 (2595 reads)


Parking in Downtown Huntsville was an issue for the BIA yesterday as they explained of problems that merchants were having and solutions they thought could address them before the start of the busy summer season.
While its well known that there is a 2 hour limit of parking on the main street, the BIA felt that it was being abused and not being enforced by the bylaw dept.  Mayor Doughty said that he was unaware that the issue was not being enforced and would see to it that parking is enforced going forward.
Other issues included changing of signs and designating the back lots as 2 hour parking.  Mayor Doughty also addressed the parking at Kent Park, saying that the town should pave the parking spots and designate 2 hour parking.
Staff of town hall and the downtown stores will be asked to start parking on the side streets as soon as the snow banks have all been cleared away.

Ontario Set to Deliver 2014 Budget
Tuesday, April 15, 2014 (173 reads)


Charles Sousa, the Minister of Finance for Ontario, will deliver the 2014 provincial budget on May 1, 2014 at 4 p.m. in the Ontario Legislature.

This among accusations that the Liberal government has been involved in a cover up related to the cancellation of two gas plants. Progressive Conservatives say the timing of this announcement is designed to pull the focus away from the scandal, while Sousa claims it is merely coincidental.

The budget will likely give us a glimpse of how Premier Kathleen Wynne hopes to fund her pledged $29 billion transit and transportation infrastructure plan as well as how the government will deal with the current $11.3 billion deficit.

Blast of Winter Today
Tuesday, April 15, 2014 (3579 reads)


After a long awaited taste of summer, winter returns with a snowy vengeance.  A sharp Arctic cold front has passed through Central Ontario ushering out the mild air of the past few days. In the wake of the front, northwesterly winds are returning much colder Arctic air to the region, with temperatures plunging to below freezing early this morning.  

Indications show that a snowfall of 10 to 15 cm of snow are possible for some areas east of Georgian Bay.

Driving conditions will deteriorate quickly as the freezing precipitation and snow move in. Motorists should be prepared for hazardous winter driving conditions due to low visibility in areas of heavier snow, and accumulating snow on untreated roads.

The snow will end over all regions late in the day. Winter's Victory will be only temporary, as temperatures will moderate back up closer to normal by the end of the week.

Weatherman Calls For Rain Changing to Ice Pellets and Snow
Monday, April 14, 2014 (3222 reads)


The weatherman has issued a Rainfall warning for Huntsville, Baysville and the Town of Parry Sound.

Rain associated with a low pressure system will affect the area today. Regions extending from the Bruce Peninsula across Georgian Bay to Parry Sound and Algonquin could see totals of 25 to 50 mm of rain by this evening.
Current indications suggest that rain will begin changing to snow from near Georgian Bay to Lake St Clair tonight with the transition zone reaching Eastern Ontario later Tuesday morning. During this transition, there is a risk of a few hours of freezing rain or ice pellets.

In addition, after the changeover to snow, a few centimetres are likely by the time the snow tapers off later on Tuesday. Temperatures will be sharply colder on Tuesday with afternoon temperatures expected to be below freezing.
Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Avoid driving through water on roads. Even shallow fast moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle or a person away.

Saturday, April 12, 2014 (44652 reads)


The Ministry of Natural Resources – Parry Sound District is advising residents within flood-prone locations that a Flood Warning is in effect as flooding is imminent. Residents affected by flooding in past years are advised to take immediate action to secure or protect property in advance of river flows and lake levels rising to flood levels. Those residents that have evacuated their homes in past years due to flooding may wish to make similar preparations at this time as rising water levels will hinder, limit or prevent the ability to evacuate as driveways and roads in lower-lying locations become impassible. All residents in close proximity to local rivers are advised to keep a close watch on conditions, regularly check for updated messages and exercise caution as river flows and levels rise. MNR continues to monitor weather conditions and flows and water levels. Further updates to this Flood Warning will be issued as conditions change. 
TECHNICAL INFORMATION Description of Weather System The current forecast is calling for 45mm or more precipitation beginning the evening of Saturday April 12th through Monday April 14th. The forecast through to next Monday is for daytime high temperatures up to 16 degrees Celsius with near freezing nighttime temperatures. Description of Current Conditions The water content within the existing snow pack throughout local watersheds continues to be greater than the normal or historical average for early April. Forecasted temperatures and rainfall will significantly accelerate the melt of the snow pack Saturday through Monday. It is expected that the melting of the snow pack and rainfall amounts will significantly increase the amount of runoff into local rivers and lakes.

Hernen Says Flood Outlook is Looking Good
Friday, April 11, 2014 (1547 reads)


FIre Chief Steve Hernen says that while there is a lot of water content in the snow this year compared to last year, he expects that unless there is a significant change in the weather, flooding should not be a problem.

In an exclusive interview with HBR, Hernen said that the Town continues to monitor flows from the Big East River and is currently running at 33 cubic feet per second, well below the flood volumes of 98 cubic feet per second.

Last year, the warm weather plus a significant rainfall increased water flow volumes to over 246 cubic feet per second, well above any previous flood data.

So far the low temperatures at night are making for a slow thaw and Hernen says the snow pack can still take on more water without risk of flooding as long as it keeps cool at night.

Special Weather Statement for Area
Monday, April 07, 2014 (12144 reads)


A moisture-laden Texas low is setting its sights on Central Ontario. The Weatherman says a disturbance over Western Tennessee is forecast to intensify and track toward the Lower Great Lakes today. The most likely trajectory is across Ohio to Lake Ontario by Tuesday morning. Rain is expected to develop over parts of Southern Ontario this afternoon, reaching Georgian Bay by this evening.

A significant general rainfall of 15 to 25 mm is likely over much of Southern and Eastern Ontario with the higher amounts likely closer to lakes Erie and Ontario. Rainfall warnings have been issued northeast of Lake Ontario where 25 to 35 mm of rain are forecast.

The rain will likely change to a heavy wet snow this evening mainly over the higher terrain of the Dundalk and Haliburton Highlands. A significant accumulation of 5 to 10 centimetres appears likely in these areas before it tapers off early Tuesday. Locally higher amounts are possible, especially through Algonquin Park area. Snowfall warnings may be required.

On a more spring-like note, the warmest weather of the season is likely on Thursday to the south of Georgian Bay, quickly erasing any memory of the snow on Monday night. Temperatures are expected to climb into the mid to upper teens, but will likely be more muted east of Georgian Bay.

Today, the Conservative Government introduced a Canadian Victims Bill of Rights which, according to Parry Sound-Muskoka MP Tony Clement, will transform the criminal justice system.

The new legislation, if passed, would give victims specific information about the progress of the case, the investigation, and any prosecution and sentencing.

Huntsville Hospital Prepares For 8 Hour Emergency Back-Up Power Outage
Monday, March 31, 2014 (4247 reads)


On April 9, 2014, the Huntsville District Memorial Hospital Site will experience a planned, eight hour outage of the emergency back-up power system. The outage is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and end by 5 p.m.

During this time we will be installing two new transformers that will not only support the new CT Scanner that is being installed this spring, but will also create redundancy in our back-up electrical system and the additional capacity to support new and future critical equipment on emergency power. 

During the outage, there will be no surgeries, or ambulatory or outpatient procedures. Ambulances will bypass the Emergency Department, which will have the capacity to operate as an urgent care centre only. Other facilities, including the South Muskoka Memorial Hospital Site in Bracebridge, will be used for obstetrical deliveries on April 8 and 9.

Chief Executive of Diagnostics, Ambulatory and Planning, Harold Featherston said, “We appreciate your understanding that we will be discouraging visiting during this period of time.”  Should you require treatment or care, we are encouraging you to visit your family doctor or primary care provider if possible. During the outage our staff will be focused on providing safe, quality care to our current patients.

Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare apologizes for the inconvenience this causes and appreciates your support and understanding during this time.
