Sanitary Sewer Maintenance in Long Sault and Ingleside
Multi-Drain Inc. will be cleaning and inspecting sanitary sewers in Long Sault and Ingleside from May 27 to June 30, 2013. Occasionally, during sewer cleaning, air pressure in the sewer main can cause water to splash out of toilets, sinks and drains in your home. Please take the following precautions to prevent water damage to your home:
Close lids and cover toilet bowls when not in use;
Insert plugs in all sinks and bathtubs when not in use;
Remove all floor mats in bathrooms;
Place an old towel around base of toilets; and
Cover all basement floor drains.
You may put things back as they were when the equipment has left your area. Please be aware that the equipment may be in your area for more than one day.

Final Property Tax Bills
The final tax bills have been mailed and are due in two installments: June 28 and September 30, 2013. The Township is in the process of billing for maintenance carried out on various municipal drains. If your tax bill contains a special charge called “DRAINS”, this amount represents your share of the total expense.
For your convenience, please be advised of the following methods of payment available:
• In person at the Town Hall, cash, cheque, etc.
• Mail cheque or money order to P.O. Box 84, Long Sault, ON K0C 1P0.
• After hours, access the drop off box beside the front entrance of the Town Hall.
• Telephone/internet banking.
• At ABMs (automated bank machines) and at most financial institutions.
Please ensure that your method of payment allows sufficient time for processing; payments must be received at the office by the due date. For your information a penalty of 1.25% is added to all outstanding tax accounts the day after the payment due date and continues to be added on the first day of each month until the account is paid in full.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Fireworks – Keep It Safe!
Appoint a responsible person to be in charge. Only adults who are aware of the hazards and essential safety precautions should handle and discharge fireworks.
Always keep a water hose or pail of water close by when discharging fireworks.
Discharge fireworks well away from combustible materials like buildings, trees and dry grass.
Keep onlookers a safe distance away, upwind from the area where fireworks are discharged.
Dispose of used fireworks in a metal container.
Keep sparklers away from children. Sparklers burn extremely hot and can ignite clothing, cause blindness and result in severe burns. As the sparkler wire remains hot for some minutes after burnout, it should be immediately soaked in water to avoid injury.
