As a result of Council initiative for shared services between Smiths Falls and Montague there is the possibility of a service delivery increase this year for Montague residents.  Beginning in early June the streets in Atironto, Carsville and Woods subdivision can be swept by Smiths Falls’ Public Works personnel using sidewalk brush and street sweeper. The modest cost would covered by Montague Township’s paved surfaces budget.

This is an excellent trial at shared services for the town of Smith Falls and the Township of Montague given the low cost. Depending on the outcome it could be done again in future years, potentially grown or abandoned depending on the outcome.
