Controlled burn on Tosorontio Tract on May 16 into May 17 has been postponed

 

Midhurst/May 16, 2019 – Due to inclement weather, the controlled burn, which was scheduled to take place on May 16 and May 17, has been postponed.

Unfortunately, the planned controlled burn on 40 hectares (100 acres) of the Tosorontio Tract will not proceed as planned, due to inclement weather. The County of Simcoe Forestry Department is working with our contracted burn professionals to establish another suitable date to conduct the burn. The County of Simcoe will inform residents before any controlled burn goes ahead.   

County of Simcoe is composed of sixteen member municipalities and provides crucial public services to County residents in addition to providing paramedic and social services to the separated cities of Barrie and Orillia. Visit our website at simcoe.ca.
