Algonquin Highlands office closed following threat
Algonquin Highlands staff were sent home on Friday, Dec. 13 after the township received a threat on social media.
“Earlier today staff were made aware of social media posts that contained language of enough concern to contact police,” Mayor Carol Moffatt said in a statement. “In consultation with the OPP the municipal office, library, public works garage and community centre on North Shore Road have been closed for the remainder of the day and staff have been sent home.”
“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this causes to the public; the safety and well-being of staff is our primary concern,” Moffatt said. “The OPP are monitoring the situation. As the official spokesperson for the municipality I will provide any necessary updates. There is no threat to public safety.”
