First Electric Vehicle Charging Station Installed In Lakefield

Selwyn Township has announced its first electric vehicle charging station, as residents can now charge their electric cars in downtown Lakefield.

The electric vehicle charging station is located in the municipal parking lot beside The Village Inn of Lakefield.

Selwyn Township says on their Facebook page that the charging station is free-of-charge for an unknown period of time as part of a provincial initiative to promote electric/hybrid vehicles.

They add that appropriate signage will be installed in the Spring with more information about the station and that residents will be informed when the service is no longer free and how much it will cost.

A Total Fire Ban Has Been Implemented In The Township Of Selwyn

Due to the increasingly dry conditions during this heat spell—we have had virtually zilch precipitation this summer—the Township of Selwyn has issued a total fire ban effective immediately.

They tweeted about the fire ban this afternoon...

All open air burning (including campfires) is now prohibited and all fire permits that have been issued are now void until the fire ban is lifted. Residents will be notified when the fire ban has been lifted.

Water restrictions also remain in place and you can learn more about those regulations here.
