This meeting was called to discuss the revised SOP Guidelines, NAPE Negotiations and the Sewer Problem at Main Street South.

 

NAPE Negotiations were discussed and members agreed upon a counterproposal to present to the Union.

 

Members were updated with the sewer problem on Main Street South.  There seems to be a blockage in the sewer line between Manhole # 4 and 5.  Outside Workers have been pumping out Manhole # 5 and 6 since Wednesday past.  Resident Jim Tulk has problems with sewer coming up in his basement because of the blockage. 

 

Musgrave Harbour has 200 ft. snake and Bobby was talking to the boys there yesterday and said they would come up with their snake and if we got the vacuum truck out to suck out the manhole, they would use their snake to try and push through the blockage.  Members agreed to try this and if the boys couldn’t come up, to go ahead and get the truck.

 

Members were informed that our Permit states that the sewer lines must be flushed and cleaned at least once annually.  The Permit also states the worker must be trained as a Wastewater Operator 1 and safety measures/PPE must be adhered to.

This includes a SCBA, confined space certificate, etc.

 

The Fire Department Revised SOP Guidelines had been given to all members to take home and review.  There were no changes or concerns presented regarding the revision.  Members were in agreement that the SOP Guidelines would be adopted by Council at the next Regular Public Council Meeting scheduled for April 30th, 2018.  Packages will be copied to be presented to the Fire Department Members at their next meeting.
