Cornwall ON – Cornwall Ontario City Councilor and Mayoralty candidate Mark A MacDonald wants the city to help flood victims. He released the following to the media.
During the past several days, I have been talking to and visiting several of our city residents who have experienced significant property damage from the torrential rain storm and flooding on September 30. Many of them have asked me how the City can assist them in this emergency flooding situation.
As a result, I will be presenting a motion under new business at the next city council meeting on October 12 dealing with the local flooding. It is being seconded by Mary Ann Hug.
The motion has been submitted to the city clerk and reads as follows:
Whereas home owners and tenants have been dealing with significant
property damage as a result of the recent torrential rain storm and
subsequent flooding which occurred on September 30, 2010; and,
Whereas property owners have had the burden of additional costs as a
result of this storm;
Therefore be it resolved that Administration investigate how the
Government of Ontario may provide financial relief for the affected
I firmly believe that we must do everything possible to help our residents who have been adversely affected by this serious flooding.
Councillor Mark A. MacDonald,
City of Cornwall
