April 28th, 2019

County of Renfrew Declares State of Emergency

Pembroke: At 1:30p.m. today, Warden Jennifer Murphy has declared an emergency due to flooding along the Ottawa River, Bonnechere River and Madawaska River watershed areas across the entirety of the County of Renfrew under the Emergency Management and Protection Act. Rising water levels pose an ongoing threat to the property, health and safety of residents.

Flood levels are currently exceeding the historic levels seen in 2017. Additional significant runoff and rainfall are being forecasted, and water levels will continue to rise. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry has issued a Flood Warning for Renfrew County. For safety, all residents should monitor weather conditions, check for updated messages, and exercise caution near fast-moving water. Residents should take appropriate precautions to protect their property in safety-oriented manner. The County of Renfrew is reminding residents to contact their Local Municipality if they are experiencing flooding or require sandbags, sand or to volunteer. Local Municipalities are working diligently at providing sandbags and sand to residents that require them as a means of protecting homes and businesses.

As of today, five lower-tier municipalities in the county have declared a state of emergency: Whitewater Region, Horton, McNab/Braeside, Laurentian Valley and Greater Madawaska. The Warden stated that she knows that a lot of hard work has been done by so many to this point, but based on current information residents need to be resilient. Water levels are expected to rise as rain and runoff from the snow melt continues to feed into local rivers and lakes in the coming days. Warden Murphy commented, “Today I have declared a state of emergency for Renfrew County, with the focus on supporting the local municipalities that are being directly impacted by the flooding here in the county. I would ask that residents continue to be diligent of the safety for themselves and those around them in these difficult times, and that residents can be assured that the County of Renfrew along with all impacted municipalities in the county are making all efforts to provide support where and when needed.” Resident’s are encouraged to contact their Local Municipality to report flooding of roadways so that an online map can be updated quickly to reflect road closures.

The mapping tool is called “Municipal511”, and can be found online at www.municipal511.ca Residents can access the Renfrew County Flood Impact & Recovery document located at: http://www.countyofrenfrew.on.ca/news-events/news/county-of-renfrew---flood-preparation-and-recovery/

The County of Renfrew will continue to post road closures and Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry Flood Warnings to the County’s Face Book and Twitter Feeds, and update the local media whenever possible.

As you are aware, we at Horton have been battling the floods now for over 2 weeks.  And it’s just now that we have gotten a handle on it.

With that and the weather slowing down the “readiness” of our new soccer field, we must again postpone the start of our league.

The new tentative date will be June 5th

In regard to the “Meet the coach” night we are still waiting for the jerseys to come in. They should be in VERY soon. (sadly, it has not been a good start to the spring for Horton on all fronts).

I hope to have the Meet the Coach night in the coming weeks.

I’m very sorry, about the delay. Most of this is out of our control, and it’s to bad. BUT, we will make sure your kid and family have a great and exciting year!!

If you have ANY, questions, please feel free to contact me.

And if you know anyone who has not received these email (some people registered without an email) please feel free to forward this to them.

Again, very sorry!

It is my privilege as Mayor to invite you to explore our website to obtain an insight into the Township’s infrastructure and history, as well as familiarizing yourself with the dedicated Council and Staff members who work together to manage the business of Horton Township.

Horton’s history commenced in the early 1820’s. It was incorporated as a Township in 1850. The Township has the distinct privilege of being home to the first road known as the Opeongo Line, starting at the beautiful Ottawa River. This is where cargo was received and passengers disembarked from the boats arriving at Farrell’s Landing, to begin their journey into the interior of the Ottawa Valley. The Ottawa River is one of two rivers that run throughout the Township. The second one is the Bonnechere River which stretches 145 kilometres from near McAskill Lake in Bonnechere Park to Castleford in Horton Township, where it empties into the Ottawa River.

Our Township is a rapidly growing community. The present population is approximately 3,000 residents. In 2014, Horton Township had the second highest growth rate for new homes in Renfrew County.

Township recreation facilities include a beautiful community centre with a 175 seating capacity. The community centre was recently expanded to include a brand new kitchen and stage facilities. We also offer a regulation-size outdoor rink and a heated change room. The engineered steel roof that covers the outdoor rink allows us to extend the hours of operation for the skating and hockey seasons.

During the summer, residents and tourists alike have use of the Horton Township boat launch which allows for easy access to the Ottawa River.

Our web site lists the names of our Council members and staff. If you have any inquiries or concerns please feel free to call the person in charge of the relevant committee or department. We are available to respond to any of your concerns or to direct you to someone who can assist with your inquiry.

In closing, I encourage you to visit us at your leisure, to enjoy all the amenities that Horton Township has to offer.

Homeowners must ensure that smoke alarms are installed between sleeping and living areas. They are also required to maintain the smoke alarm in working order.

In rental accommodations, the obligation to install and maintain smoke alarms in operating condition falls on the landlord. Landlords must also provide smoke alarm maintenance information to the occupant of each unit.

It is an offence for any person to disable a smoke alarm. This requirement applies equally to homeowners, landlords and tenants.

Failure to comply with the smoke alarm requirements of the Fire Code can result in a $200 fine. The Fire Chief does not have any discretion in a fine.

On behalf of the cottagers on Gagan Lane I want to thank the Council for restoring the annual  tax covered road grading. As promised in 2015 and reconfirmed in 2016 the council responded to the cottager's request for help In maintaining their roads as part of providing fire, ambulance and police protection. The ad hoc committee  provided a very clear policy and procedures statement that we will be pleased to follow.

Resident of Gagan Lane


Good Morning,

I'm sure you get many complaints in the township and people are quick to comment but we felt it was also necessary to share this information.

Thomson Road was recently worked on by BR Fulton Construction, K&K Paving with Rod Eady and Horton staff.

Living on that road, we would liek to applaud all th employees involved with this process. As we all know this is a very busy road but they went out of their way to do a quick yet fantastic job, completing the road while not causing any inconvenience with traffic.

For us we were concerned about the fact that our driveway was paved and the end had to be cut out and tied back in with the road.

Rob Fulton, his staff, K&K employees and Rod Eady ensureed all would be good and they were absolutely correct. all of these people further followed up with us to ensure we were happy. They were awesome adn certainly did a fabulous job.

They should all be commended for their work on Thomson Road. The pavement, the shoulder of the road, everything turned out perfect and is great to drive on.

Thanks to everyone. A job well done!

Resident of Thomson Road

We have prepared materials from the unique vantage point of one of Canada’s worst carbon monoxide related tragedies, in which CO claimed the lives of a family of four from Woodstock, ON and was the impetus for the creation of the Hawkins-Gignac Foundation for CO Education.  This new law makes carbon monoxide alarms mandatory in all Ontario homes with fuel-burning appliances or attached garages, no matter the age of the home.

Referencing our information on your web or social media sites will be useful to help convey details about this new law and the April 15 enforcement date.  The focal point of the package is our ‘Get to Know CO’ three part video series that covers ‘Complying with Ontario’s New CO Alarm Law’, ‘Sources and Symptoms of CO’, and how to ‘Protect your Family with CO Alarms’. 

To preview and share the ‘Get To Know CO’ three part series use the following links:

The Hawkins-Gignac Foundation for CO Education, a charitable organization, was established to ensure the Hawkins family – Laurie, Richard, Cassandra and Jordan – who died from CO poisoning in Woodstock in 2008, did not perish in vain.  Our mission continues in Ontario by encouraging citizens to comply and to educate all Canadians about the dangers of CO and how to properly protect families.

Please post this information for the April 15th enforcement date and beyond.  This information will continue to be relevant for months as residents come into compliance with this new law, supporting the ongoing CO education efforts from your local fire service.  As part of your social media outreach, please watch for, follow and share the activity coming from the Foundation on Twitter @HawkinsGignac and facebook.com/HawkinsGignacFoundation.

Over 2,500 residents choose to reside in Horton Township. Along with bordering the Ottawa River, the Township is home to several large lakes making this community very attractive to cottagers and retirees. The four-lane expansion of the TransCanada Highway (417) beyond Arnprior is nearing completion. This will shorten the commute to Ottawa for work and social outings.

Council takes pride in looking out for their residents. They are one of four municipal partners with the Renfrew Victoria Hospital that are working towards physician recruitment for this area. To date they have been successful in recruiting several new physicians, a general surgeon and an internist. Residents wanting information on how to register for a doctor

Many recreational facilities are available within the Township. These include a public boat launch, the Renfrew Golf Club, the local Community Centre and a beautiful regulation-size outdoor rink that is covered. The Horton Community Centre and the outdoor rink are available to rent for private functions.

The Township is flourishing with new development. There is a planned subdivision that is nearing the construction stage and another is in the planning stages. In addition, several new businesses have chosen to set up their company in our thriving Township.
