Welland City Council has approved phase one of a multi-phased canal redevelopment strategy focused on funding new initiatives and amenities that will enhance the city's waterfront experience for families, individuals, and tourists.   The phase one changes will be completed at the city's Lincoln Street Docks over the next 4-6 weeks.

The City of Welland is conducting an Inflow and Infiltration Reduction Study to identify sources of rain and groundwater entering sanitary sewers. City staff will then be able to develop a plan to reduce sources of rainwater inflow. The increased flow and volume from rainwater and groundwater fills the sanitary sewer system, reduces the capacity of the sanitary sewers which increases the risk of overloading the system, and risks basement flooding and overflow of untreated wastewater to the environment.

Interested in transferring assets to your children? There are two routes you can take-pass assets along while you're alive, or leave them to your heirs when you die. Not everybody wants to wait until they die to transfer assets. You might want to give cash, property or investments today to help your children with their finances.

At the Ryan Boese office we do things differently. We like to meet our customers face to face. We believe a handshake is a very powerful tool. Our goal is to inform our customers and meet with them regularly to build a lifelong plan that insures and protects what is valuable to them.

The Ryan Boese State Farm office is located in North Welland at the corner of Niagara St & Quaker Rd. In the Donut Diner Plaza.
