LightsThe Limoges Citizens’ Committee have organized the installation of 10 new dog waste containers in the Village of Limoges. As recorded in their monthly minutes, the new containers will be installed and maintained by The Nation Municipality’s Public Works.

The Limoges Citizens’ Committee has been working on this project for several months and the waste containers are being installed on a “one-year tryout, (so) the containers will be easily moved if there is a problem.” Some of the containers will be installed on a year-round basis while others will be installed on a seasonal basis.

Local residents love their dogs, but they sometimes fail to clean up after them. The Limoges Citizens’ Committee hopes that the dog waste container initiative will help keep the village clean for everyone. The Nation Municipality, meanwhile, promises to empty the containers on a weekly basis.

Also noted in the report, while “there are no containers on the Russell side, the project can be expanded later. For Nokomis Park, there was a suggestion to install the covers on the existing containers to reduce the smell.”

Village Limoges is a young, endearing community nestled at the doorstep of Canada’s national capital region. Straddling both The Nation Municipality and Russell Township, the village borders the great Larose Forest, one of Ontario’s largest forests. As part of both municipalities, the village sits in the United Counties of Prescott and Russell.

The Limoges Citizens’ Committee promotes and supports the interests of the community, serves as a public conduit to the two municipalities, promotes the research and financing of local projects, and coordinates activities between different groups and associations in the village. From 2002 to 2016, the Limoges Citizens’ Committee distributed more than $120,000 across numerous projects within the community.
