NEWSLETTER # 11 - MARCH 2015


Council Meetings

 

Council meetings are held every second Monday night at 7:30 p.m. and are open to the Public. If you have a topic to discuss, please call the office so it can be added to the Agenda.

 

Council Meeting Minutes are updated bi-weekly on the town website: townofcarmanville.ca.    

 

911 Service

 

The 911 Service has now been implemented. However, you can still use the Fire Dept. number 534-4444 when reporting a fire.

 

Residents are reminded to post your house number so that it is visible from the road.

 

Permits

 

With the approach of Spring and Summer residents are reminded that permits are required for renovations and construction or demolition and must be purchased before the work is started. Further information can be obtained by calling the office.

 

Waste Management

 

Sorting and Recycling have now been introduced by Central Waste Management. Information packages were mailed out to all residents. There is also information on their website www.cnwmc.com and on the town website under the “Residents” section.

 

Remember the sorting/recycling rules will be enforced at the end of March.

 

Delinquent Accounts

 

In order for the Town to operate within its annual budget, we must receive the income from all Taxes in a timely manner. In this regard, there should not be any taxes owing on your account prior to 2015.

 

Notices were sent out during the past couple of months and we have received some response. Over the next couple of months we will be enforcing the collection of all arrears by the following means - disconnection of water services, collection agency, seizure of property, rental seizures, wage attachments, etc.

 

If your account is in arrears, contact the office to make arrangements for payment of these arrears to avoid one of the above means of collection.

 

Water and Sewer Update

 

We have received funding for the first phase of our Water and Sewer Project. Phase 1 should commence late spring and will cover the installation of a sewer outfall which will be located in the vicinity of Goodyear’s Hill and installation of a few sewer lines and new water mains.

 

We have applied for funding for Phase 2 which if approved can possibly start late this summer. Phase 2 will involve installation of the tank and sewer lines and new waterlines as far as the funding received will cover.

 

Street Lighting

 

With the addition of 16 new street lights throughout the community, the town currently pays $1,717.22 monthly to provide this service.

 

If you notice a light out, please notify the office so we can get it replaced in a timely manner.

 

Age Friendly Grant

 

Last summer we received funding to host events for seniors (Age 50 Plus) which were scheduled throughout the summer. There is funding remaining on this grant so there will be more events for seniors planned during the Spring. Notices will be posted throughout the community and on our website. Keep an eye out for upcoming events and come out and join us for some fun and entertainment.    

     

Town Vehicles/Equipment

 

As you may have noticed, the Town has purchased a new Rubber Tire Backhoe as our previous Loader was outdated. It was difficult to get parts for it and we did not have a backhoe to allow us to do our own work.

 

Under the Municipalities Act, we are not allowed to compete with any other business in the community. Therefore, we are unable to provide snow clearing services or backhoe work to our residents as there is a business in the community offering the same services.

 

We are in the process of obtaining a Sander to fit into the pan of the pickup for sanding the town roads as this was previously performed manually which has safety risks involved for our worker.

 

Fire Department

 

Last Fall the Fire Department applied for and recently received funding from Fire & Emergency Services on a 90/10 split to cover the cost of fire equipment/gear they required.

 

The government provided $11,004.74 and the town contributed $1,805.28 to cover the cost of 5 new Pagers complete with adapters and chargers and 5 new sets of Bunker Gear which included jackets and pants, boots, gloves, nomex hoods, and helmets.

 

The Fire Department are always seeking new members. If you are a resident of Carmanville, Noggin Cove or Frederickton you are welcome to attend a meeting to check it out or submit an application to join.  

 

Recreation Committee

 

The Rec. Center is still unavailable for use so Bingo has been going on at the Four Winds Lounge. We wish to express our thanks to Sharon and the Staff for accommodating us during this period.      

          

During the past few months there has been considerable vandalism at the Rink including tearing the power meter off the building which could have resulted in a fatality. Since the repairs were all completed, the weather has not cooperated to allow us to open the rink for skating this season. Sincere thanks go out to all the volunteers who helped with the repairs at the rink and assisted with the snow clearing.

 

Habitat Committee

 

The Weekly 50/50 Escalating Ticket Draw has been moved from Davis Clover Farm to G & M Services. For those who had purchased previous tickets you would keep the same number. Your number can be obtained from G & M Services or the Town Office if you have lost or forgotten your number. Cost is $2.00 weekly to play. Thank you Glen and Staff of G & M Services for taking over the Ticket Draw for our Committee.

 

We are pleased to report a successful summer on the trail, hiring four students and seeing many visitors. Some trail maintenance and siding replacement was carried out this fall through the Community Enhancement Program.

 

In addition the Center was the site for many of the activities which took place through the Age Friendly Program, including old fashioned tea parties, trail walks, etc. We also partnered with Ducks Unlimited in an Eider Duck Nesting Box Program involving the construction of 20 boxes which were placed on North Penguin Island in the fall and a public presentation from DUC in August. A bat box, donated by the Canadian Wildlife Federation was installed on the Northland Trail and will be monitored as they study the Little Brown Bat population across the country.

 

As winter is quickly coming to an end, we encourage people to continue to enjoy the trail while snowshoeing or cross country skiing. Plans are already underway for summer activities including a bird watching workshop.

 

Happy Easter to all from Council and Staff.

 

 

 


 

 

 

Sort It Central

Recycling and Garbage Program

 

  Central Newfoundland Waste Management (CNWM) is pleased to announce Sort It - Central, a new curbside recycling and garbage collection program that will launch on Monday, March 2, 2015.
  With a focus on increasing waste diversion and protecting the environment, Sort It - Central requires everyone to properly sort their waste into two streams, using clear bags for garbage and transparent blue bags for recyclables, including paper fibre and mixed containers.
  As you are aware, residents and businesses in communities throughout Central Newfoundland have been participating in existing waste diversion programs for many years, and we know they are looking forward to the launch of Sort It – Central so they can do more to reduce the amount of waste destined for our landfill.
  We also understand there will be a period of transition as the program launches, and we have developed a comprehensive public education plan to ensure that residents and businesses have the opportunity to learn how to properly sort their waste as well as the flexibility to implement appropriate waste diversion infrastructure, where required.
  In addition to conducting stakeholder outreach, a local radio and print advertising campaign has been developed to help create awareness about the Sort It - Central program. Commencing February 16, 2015, residents and businesses in Central Newfoundland will receive an information package that includes a waste sorting guide as well as samples of clear and transparent blue bags. Complete program details are also available online at www.cnwmc.com.

The 50/50 Escalating Ticket Draw that was previously held at Davis Clover Farmon behalf of theCarmanville Habitat Committee will now be sold at G & M Services. Ticket Lottery License # is 14-10032600LT.

 

All persons who previously purchased a ticket will keep the same number you were originally assigned. Your ticket stubs have been kept in the box and your name is assigned to the corresponding number. If you have lost/misplaced your ticket stub and don’t know your number, you can call the town office at 534-2814.

 

Any new person who purchases a ticket will be entered into the current weekly draw. You will receive a ticket stub with your number on it and the ticket part with your name and corresponding number will be placed in the box for the weekly draws. Your name will be recorded next to that number in the binder and as you pay the $2.00 weekly the ticket sale will be recorded in this book.

 

If your number is drawn and you paid for the week of the draw, you will receive 50% of the ticket sales for that particular week or 50 % of the total escalated amount. If your number is drawn and you did not pay for the week of the draw, the money is not paid out and will escalate weekly until a number is drawn that has paid for the week of the draw.

 

The Carmanville Habitat Committee will receive the other 50% of the ticket sales. Quarterly they will donate 10% of their share alternating between the Carmanville Recreation Committee and the Carmanville Fire Department.

 

Ticket draws will be held every Monday Morning and will cover the period from the previous Monday Morning to Sunday Night.
