Boat launch consultation for Municipality of Pontiac

After the conclusion of a preliminary study, residents of the Municipality of Pontiac will have their chance to voice their opinions on the options for a new boat launch.
The municipality will be hosting a public consultation on the options for a new boat launch on Tremblay Road on Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Luskville Community Centre.
The consultation will give the municipality a chance to gauge the interest of the community when it comes to the options for fixing the boat launch.
The old boat launch, which is located at the end of Tremblay Road, was closed down in October of 2016 after the Ministry of Sustainable Development, the Environment and the Fight Against Climate Change said the ramp could send excess sediment into the Ottawa River.
The boat ramp is made of sand and gravel. The other option for the municipality was to change it to concrete at a cost that was initially pegged at around $50,000.
But that cost has skyrocketed to about $300,000 according to Municipality of Pontiac acting Assistant Director General Dominic Labrie.
