Sharp-eyed reader My Puny Brain points out that residents of Montague stand to gain on their home insurance premiums as a result of the new satellite fire hall. Homes are placed into different bands depending upon their distance from a fire hall. Being within 5 km of a firehall, vs. 6 km or more, can save well over $100 a year in insurance. Spread across the township, this saving will add up.
Note: To any councillors who may be reading, this is not a suggestion that you raise our taxes in order to compensate! :)
