Firefighters receive permission for toll

Centre Well­ington council approved a by­law on Monday night that will permit volunteer firefighters from the Elora station to hold a toll on the Metcalfe Street bridge here this Saturday.

The firefighters will be col­lecting donations to benefit Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

Clerk Marion Morris told council in a report that Well­ington County roads committee and the county OPP support the toll, something the local fire de­partments have done for many years.

Fergus firefighters held their toll on Tower street a few weeks ago.

Council was unanimous in grant­ing approval.
