Hanover Assisting Farmers With Soggy Harvest

Some producers in the Rural Municipality of Hanover are working to get some harvest completed before more rain arrives.
Environment Canada continues to call for the next round of precipitation to arrive sometime late Wednesday afternoon. This has prompted some farmers to use this window of dry weather to get more of their crop in the bin.
But, with the land still saturated, this has created less than ideal conditions, both on fields and roadways. As a result, the RM of Hanover is doing what it can to help out.
Wes Fehr is Manager of Public Works and Operations for Hanover. He says their Public Works crews are working diligently to keep the roads passable so that harvesting can be done with minimal interruptions. Fehr invites farmers to contact their Public Works Department at 204-346-7129 if they have any concerns, so that the municipality and farmers can work together to find solutions in order to maintain the integrity of the roads.
Fehr stresses that any farmer who tracks a lot of muck and debris from the field onto the roadway, could be held liable if that ends up causing an accident.
