NEWSLETTER NOVEMBER 2016


Council Meetings

Council Meeting Minutes are updated bi-weekly on the town website: townofcarmanville.ca.  This website was designed and is maintained by Mark Parsons.  Mark has used his own drone to provide beautiful pictures of our town on the website. Council would like to thank Mark for his ingenuity and dedication.

 

Delinquent Accounts

In order for the town to operate within its annual budget, we must receive the income from all sources in a timely manner.  In order to receive government funding, the town must now report tax arrears and the steps taken to collect.  This means we will be enforcing the collection of arrears by disconnection of water services, collection agency, land sales, rental seizures, court appearances or wage attachments.

 

In this regard, if your account is in arrears, please contact the office to make arrangements for timely and reasonable payment of these arrears.

 

Water and Sewer Update

Phase 1 of our Water and Sewer Project has now been completed and covered the installation of a sewer outfall in the vicinity of Goodyear’s Hill and the installation of several sewer lines and new water main.

 

We have received approval for funding for Phase 2 in the amount of $1,000,000.  This Phase will cover the installation of a tank and as many installations of new sewer lines and water main as funding allows.  Due to the lateness in the year, this project will not likely be started until the Spring of 2017.

 

Burning of Prohibited Items

With the fire ban off, please be advised that items such as plastics, tires, treated wood, etc. should not be burned.  There is a list of prohibited items available on the town website.

 

Waste/Indiscriminate Dumping

Please be advised that under the Environmental Act and Municipalities Act, solid waste, noxious substances and substances or things which may be a hazard to public health and safety or which adversely affects surrounding properties cannot be dumped,

collected or stored on your property or in the beach. Further that Council can make an order that the owner/occupier remove anything listed above from a property and that failure to comply contravenes the acts and the owner/occupier can be held liable and fined.

 

Town Vehicles/Equipment

The town pickup is in disrepair and no longer trustworthy. Therefore, a new pickup has been ordered and should arrive in February 2017.

 

With winter coming on, please remember that although we have a Loader/Backhoe, 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 are 2 businesses offering the same service unless the business owners advise the town that they are unable to provide the service.

 

Fire Department

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

 

Upcoming Events

With Christmas just around the corner, notices will be posted giving dates for the Christmas Tree Lighting, Santa Claus Parade, and any other event happening during the Christmas period.  These notices will be posted throughout town, on our website and on Carmanville Connect so please keep an eye out so you don’t miss out on any of the fun and festivities.

 

Recycle My Cell

The Town of Carmanville has joined Recycle My Cell, Canada’s free cell phone recycling program, making it easy to dispose of your old devices responsibly.  The drop off location is the Town Office, where old wireless devices and accessories will be accepted, regardless of brand or condition.  After the device is received, it is sent to a processor where it can be refurbished or broken down and recycled. 

 

Accepted items include:  cell phones, smartphones, wireless PDA’s and pagers as well as their batteries and accessories.

 

Before dropping off your device, please ensure that the SIM card has been removed and that all personal information is erased from your device, including text messages, contacts and personal files.  Instructions for clearing all data can be found at:  www.RecycleMyCell.ca.

 

Composting Bins

Composting Bins are for sale at the Town Office at the cost of $25.00 each. For further information, call 534-2814 or drop by the office to check them out.

 

Emergency Preparedness

Heavy rains have recently washed out roads throughout Newfoundland leaving communities stranded and many people unprepared.  With winter on the way, snow/ice storms could create other problems such as power outages that could continue for days.  Please be advised that you should always be prepared for 72 hours on your own in the event of an emergency caused by unpredictable weather.  This would include a supply of drinking water and food to last a few days and some type of heat supply in the winter months.  An Emergency Preparedness 72 Hour Guide can be found at www.gov.nl.ca/fes/emo/preparedness.html.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to – 72 Hour Plan.

 

Recreation Committee

The Rec. Center is finally up and running again hosting Bingo every Wednesday night starting at 8:00 p.m.

 

The Rec Committee is hosting a Cards and Game Night every Thursday from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. with a $5.00 Admission fee.  Your admission gives you a chance to win ½ the take of the nightly Admission Total. 

 

They also offer Fun Darts every Monday night from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. with a $5.00 Admission fee and nightly draw for ½ the take of the Admission Fee.

 

The Rec. Center is now available for rent at the rate of $30.00 for ½ day and $75.00 for full day rental.  Please contact Natasha Mouland @ 534-2213 for enquiries or to book an event.

 

Habitat Committee

The CHC is pleased to report a successful summer on the trail, hiring eight students and seeing an increase in visitors. 

 

A sincere thank you is extended to the Hamilton Sound Credit Union for their financial support, which enabled the hiring of two post-secondary students for the summer. 

 

With the extensive damage caused by recent flooding we hope that repairs to viewing decks and the duck blind can be carried out this fall through the town’s Community Enhancement Program.

 

The CHC also partnered once again with Ducks Unlimited in an Eider Duck Nesting Box Program, involving the construction of 10 boxes which will be placed next fall.   Later this winter we will be installing cavity nesting boxes for ducks.  Anyone interested in taking part is asked to contact a committee member.  A new partnership this summer was through Forestry and Agrifoods, whereby students monitored the Spruce Budworm population. 

 

We also continue to monitor the little brown bat, in partnership with the Canadian Wildlife Federation. 

 

This year we also partnered again with the Conservation Corps, Growing Through the Ages Program and installed four garden beds behind the Town Hall.  Residents were invited to plant a variety of vegetables, such as tomatoes, Swiss chard, kale, onion, carrots and turnip.  We hope to expand on the garden next spring.

 

The CHC would also like to thank G&M Services, for sponsoring our weekly 50/50 draw.  Funds raised through the weekly draws are used to fund our activities with children and seniors in the community, and to purchase materials for trail maintenance and upkeep of the Interpretation Centre.  As well, 10% of funds raised are further donated to the Fire Dept. and the Recreation Committee.

 

As winter is quickly approaching, we encourage people to continue to enjoy the trail while snowshoeing or cross country skiing.  While we encourage trail use year round, we remind users to please be respectful and to place all garbage in the garbage cans located along the trail system.

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.

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.
