You Own Fire Pump System (AMENDED info in blue)

I talked to Murray Still yesterday and he indicated that he is talking to people at Garnet's in Espanola about a fire pump system for his cabin. It is my understanding that they quoted him a complete system for around $1,700.00 CAD ($1,500.00 if four or more systems are purchased at one time). If you do not already have your own system, I would recommend that you consider talking to Murray and/or Scott at Garnet's. It is possible that if…

A REDUCTION in property assessment!

We just received our property assessment notice from MPAC for 2017 - 2020 with a DECREASE of 20% in our assessment.  MPAC's website indicates a similar decrease for McGregor Bay properties generally.  Many residents have been of the opinion that assessments have been unrealistically high in recent years, so this probably reflects a return slightly closer to reality.
