Town Beach / Farlinger Park to remain closed
Tim Brody - Editor
Despite the town dock being put in, according to The Municipality of Sioux Lookout, the Town Beach / Farlinger Park, remains closed.
The town dock was set up in late May for general use by boaters this summer, and to accommodate two fishing tournaments, Sioux Lookout’s Walleye Weekend which took place this past weekend, and the Junior Walleye Championship on June 16.
Ben Hancharuk, acting CAO for the Municipality of Sioux Lookout, said a proper beach closed sign will be put in place and fencing will be set up to cordon off the area.
He also informed the Northwestern Health Unit and the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change are conducting further assessment.
“Although the lake itself has not been deemed unsafe, the “swim at your own risk” sign was placed as a precaution,” Hancharuk concluded.
