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.
August 30, 2014
A new SCOI bylaw was approved at the 2014 Annual General Meeing.
Invasive Species On the Beach
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.
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 - firstname.lastname@example.org or (519) 797 3039.
We have been asked to remind our members about a number of issues related to garbage.
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.
Group Insurance for Cottage Owners
SCOI Board of directors has endorsed the Cottage Association Group Insurance Program offered by Hill's Insurance in Southampton. SCOI members have access to an exclusive 15% group rate discount for their cottage, in addition to a wide range of policy discounts, such as Claims Free, Age, Renewal and Multi-Residence discount.
