Community Spirit

The damaging flood of February 14, 1984 united the resolution of the residents of Port Bruce to prepare for any future threat of flooding and to take measures to prevent flooding in the village. The Port Bruce Ratepayers Association was formed to organize a plan for the security of local property owners. This association interfaces with the various local administrative bodies such as the Catfish Creek Conservation Authority and the Malahide Town Council, which are several of the organizations responsible for the funding of flood prevention projects such as ice breaking, creek dredging and erosion control of the cliff at the harbour entrance.

The Port Bruce Newsletter, issued quarterly to members of the Port Bruce Ratepayers Association, informs the community of activities and news of local interest. News items and announcements for the newsletter can be submitted to the Port Bruce Ratepayers Association.
