HAGERSVILLE—A recent report submitted to Haldimand County Council by the Police Services Board touched upon recent efforts to deter trespassing and parking at the Hagersville quarry.
Through previously-approved funding, the County was able to increase the amount of no parking/trespassing signage around the site this summer. In addition, Council approved funding to pay off-duty officers to enforce the bylaws around the quarry on Sundays and long weekends up to the September long weekend. The breakdown of the additional funding is as follows: $5,766.36 paid to the OPP for additional towing/patrolling services between July to September 2019; $2,735.28 for ‘No Stopping’ signs mounted to cedar posts in 2018; and $3,480.49 for additional, updated signs and posts in 2019, now stating ‘No Stopping – Tow Away Zone’. Although no official statistics were available, OPP Constable Rod LeClair stated that the area is patrolled regularly during the summer months.
