Sauble Park Policy

June 1, 2015

The Chief and Band Council have recently approved a new policy and rules for operation of the Sauble Park.

The new policy defines Sauble Park as the main beach between Main St and French Bay Rd. This means that the beach crew will no longer be servicing French Bay Cove Beach and French Bay Beach.

All cottagers who witness serious infractions of the policy are to call the OPP.

 

The new Sauble Park Policy can be found here.

Invasive Species On the Beach

Phragmites update

The band surveyed the waterfront from the south end of Block B to Chief's Point in early July 2013 to locate infestations of the Phragmites reed.
Infested areas in Block A were sprayed in the fall 2013.

Giant Hogweed and Wild Parsnip

The Band is also becoming concerned about these two invasive species. The sap from both plants can cause skin inflammation and blisters. Kirk Roote in the Land Management office is asking that we report infestations to him if/when we find them - kroote@saugeenfirstnation.ca or (519) 797 3039.

The following links give good descriptions of these two species: Giant Hogweed    Wild Parsnip

 

Garbage

We have been asked to remind our members about a number of issues related to garbage.

  • The limit is 2 bags per week
  • The bears have been quite active again this year. For those who are reluctant to leave their garbage out on Sunday night, we encourage you to take your garbage home with you or store it safely until you return and then take it to the landfill on Saturdays between 10am and 2pm when the landfill is open.
    Please do not drop your garbage off at the landfill gate when the site is not open.
    Remember to take your landfill pass.
  • The fall heavy garbage pickup is scheduled for the week following the Labour Day weekend, September 2-5, 2014.

Break-ins

Summer break-ins continue to be an issue. In previous years, perpetrators have become very bold and we ask that each of you please keep an eye on your neighbours' properties. There may be people/vehicles there that you do not recognize. They may be family members or friends, but if you are unsure, you can always call the cottage owner to make sure that the people are legitimate.

Your best defense against unwanted visitors is your neighbours. Sometimes being nosy is a good thing.
