  2. New Street Numbers Coming

    Date: October 31, 2013

    To: Residents of Deer Lake, Lount Township

    From: Jim Grieve, Claude Reaume and Gloria Michels

    Re: Voluntary Assigned Street Numbering of Centre, Surfland and Deer Lake Roads

    In order to better serve our community for emergencies, service/delivery calls and visits from friends and relatives, some private citizens of Lount have taken the initiative to assign street numbers to all residents on the roads listed above. We strongly believe that our new Assigned Street Numbers will help others identify our residences easier, more accurately and without delay, particularly in areas where cell phone signals are weak or non-existent.

    Numbers have been assigned in accordance with other municipalities in the province. For example: Numbers are assigned every 10 metres. Even numbers on the north & west sides. Odd numbers on the south & east sides.

    It is important to note:

    1) These numbers could be replaced by 911 numbers in the future.

    2) The new numbers are not a replacement for Canada Post services. (We do not know how private couriers will react but we hope they choose to serve our area more directly in the near future.)

    Over the next few weeks, you will be advised of your Assigned Street Number by either:

    • Personal phone call, or
    • Notice delivered to your door, or
    • Notice affixed to post or gate on your driveway.

    Please note you are responsible for your own cost of signage and placement.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

    For Centre Road Residents: Gloria Michels – 386-0616

    For Deer Lake Road: Jim Grieve – 386-7488

    For Surfland Road – Claude Reaume – 386-1543

    Sincerely,

    Gloria, Claude and Jim

  4. What’s new in Lount?

    Well, just about all the leaves have fallen now. I thought the birches would be last the last hanger-oners but the tamaracks outlasted them all. My first year as a permanent resident. So, I got a lot to learn about these things.

    I thought I should start building an ark. Where does all the rain come from? It was so dry in June and July. Is this an indication of the snow we are in for this year?

    Any predictions when Deer Lake will freeze over?
