TOWN OF CARMANVILLE

 

  

 

Did you know?

 

-         Indiscriminate dumping is an ongoing problem in our community

-         The cost to clean up the indiscriminate is borne by the town – your tax dollars are going towards cleaning up somebody else’s mess

-         That if the person doing the indiscriminate dumping can be determined, he/she can be forced to clean up the mess and can also be fined

 

Following are pictures taken around our community of indiscriminate dumping.  In some areas, it is very difficult, maybe impossible to clean up the debris due to the location.

If you know who is responsible please do the right thing and report them.  Let’s take pride in our community and work together to make it a better, cleaner place to live.

Letter from the Town of Carmanville to the Provincial Government concerning the road conditions in the town.

 

 

May 1, 2017

 

 

 

Honorable Al Hawkins

Minister of Transportation & Works

5th Floor, West Block, Confederation Building

P. O. Box 8700

St. John’s, NL

A1B 4J6

 

Dear Minister Hawkins:

 

The Town of Carmanville wishes to draw your attention to a road owned by the Department that runs through our town.  We refer specifically to Route 332 that goes through our town and on to the neighbouring communities of Noggin Cove and Frederickton.

 

While most of the road is in terrible shape, there is a portion that is nearly impassable at this point in time.  To drive over it is like navigating an obstacle course.  Pot holes are so numerous that despite repeated attempts by highway crews to make repairs, they are fighting a losing battle.

 

We realize that the fiscal situation facing the Province is challenging but this portion of road has to be upgraded and resurfaced.  While we would like for the entire Route 332 to be upgraded, at this point in time we are only requesting the portion from the Howell’s Avenue Intersection to the Noggin Cove Road Intersection be included.  The Town is undertaking Water/Sewer work in another area of town and upgrades at this point in time would be a waste of money.

 

We would also like to point out that the harbour in Carmanville is one of the busiest off-loading ports along the North East Coast.  Numerous Fishing Enterprises use this harbour for off-loading so a huge number of Tractor trailers drive along this route.  In addition, your own department uses the wharf for off-loading salt for various depots along the North East Coast.  Some years there are two salt boats that off-load here.

 

In looking at your 5 Year Plan for roads, there is no indication that we are on the list.  At this point in time we now class this road as a top priority that has to be part of the 2017 list for road reconstruction.  Our MHA Derrick Bragg visited the community a few days ago and can attest to the deplorable condition of this section of Route 332.

 

We thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.

 

Respectfully,

 

 

Keith Howell

Mayor

 

Cc:  MHA Derrick Bragg

50/50 Escalating Ticket Draw

 

 

The 50/50 Escalating Ticket Draw that was previously held at Davis Clover Farm on behalf of the Carmanville 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.

 

Thank You For Your Support and Good Luck!
