Business

Arising:                      Generator

Voltage Regulator was replaced in the Town Generator and is ready for pickup.  Mayor Howell will pick it up.

 

 

Guest:                         Bruce Tulk (arrived at 7:35 p.m.)

 

Bruce was welcomed to the meeting by Mayor Howell.  He is requesting the town provide water to his son’s house on Tower Road.  After much discussion, it was agreed that the cost to put water up Tower Road was too expensive for the town at this point in time.  Bruce said he’s willing to allow the waterline to cross his property to get water to his son’s house.  Under the Town’s Water and Sewer Policy, only the saddle and curb stop is provided by the town and the property owner is responsible for the waterline and connection to the Main.  The town worker only supervises the connection to the Main. 

 

Since the property is on Tower Road and the town can’t offer water to the residence, Bruce asked if the town would help by providing the Backhoe and Operator to dig the waterline or pay for a Contractor.  Bruce informed Council that the well previously used is no longer safe to use.  He will check the cost for a contractor to dig but if it’s too expensive, he may as well turn it into a shed because without water it will be inhabitable. 

 

Mayor Howell thanked Bruce for attending.  He left the meeting at 8:10 p.m.

 

Since the cost to provide water to the residence on Town Road is too great, Council decided to explore the option presented by Bruce.  This would involve the town putting in the equivalent waterline as they would to bring it up Tower Road.  To do this, the following criteria would have to be met:

a)      Council would need proof of the property measurements.

b)     An easement would have to be signed by Bruce giving Council the right to cross his property and access to the waterline in the event of a leak.  This easement would have to remain in effect even if the property was sold.

c)      The Town Worker would have to dig 3 or 4 test holes on Bruce’s property to see if a waterline trench could be dug there.

d)     The Town’s Water and Sewer Regulations would not be violated.

 

There was General Agreement that if all the criteria is met, the town would install a ¾” line from the inside of the ditch, across Bruce’s Property to his son’s property and provide the saddle and curb stop as per the Town’s Water and Sewer Regulations.  The remainder of the waterline installation to the house and the connection to the Main would still be the responsibility of the home owner.  The tie in to the Main would still be supervised by the Town Worker.

 

Business

Arising:                      Burry’s Lane/Salt/Sand Mixture

                                    Three contractors were asked to submit a quote for the following:

-         Pickup and transport salt/sand mixture from Highways Depot (Route 330) to Town Garage via dump truck.  (with Trans/Works employees loading the truck)

 

Two quotes were received:

1.      D & M Services – lump sum for all listed above - $1,410.00 plus HST.

2.      Brinson’s Sand and Gravel – Ditching at Burry’s Lane - $145.00 per hour or $2,700 to do the job.  Dump Truck hire for sand pickup and deliver - $65.00 per hour.  All prices are plus HST.

Request for Meeting change date

(Deputy Mayor Peddle left the meeting at 8:45 p.m. due to a conflict of interest)

A letter from Deputy Mayor Peddle asking Council to reconsider their decision regarding the request to change the meeting date was circulated to all members.  Deputy Mayor Peddle works all evenings from Monday to Friday with Wednesday and Thursday the less busy giving her a better opportunity to attend.  Councillor K. Blackwood advised that she works both Wednesday and Thursday nights.  All other members were available either evening.
