The Ontario Good Roads Association holds a conference every year, and some public works staff from Haliburton County municipalities attend. New this year is a forum specifically focused on the issues that face small towns. Roy Haig is the Engineering Manager for the County and he says this new forum will hopefully combine efforts to raise their voice to provincial ministers. Haig explains Ontario’s government struggles to meet the needs of small communities when they don’t have a lot of support on a Federal level.
