The United Counties of Prescott-Russell council (UCPR) have accepted a transfer of responsibility for Main Street and two other streets in Hawkesbury. The transfer agreement was approved through a registered vote during the counties council’s Wednesday regular meeting.
“I’m very happy the (counties) council has recognized our need,” said René Berthiaume, Hawkesbury mayor.
Next spring the UCPR will take official responsibility for Main Street in Hawkesbury, which is connected to the counties Route 4 connector to County Road 17, west of the town. The counties will also take over responsibility for John Street and Tupper Street.
