This meeting was called to discuss issues that arose from the Waterline installation at 221 Main Street and the Chemical Feed Pump at the Chlorination Chambers.

 

Waterline Installation – Damage to Underground Powerline

During the excavation to install the waterline at 221 Main Street, an undeclared, underground powerline was hooked and broken. Town workers spliced the powerline and re-buried it in an attempt to restore service.  However, the powerline cannot be spliced or joined.  Therefore, a new powerline must be installed as soon as possible.

Motion-4423-19-Councillor G. Blackwood/Councillor D. Howell

Resolve that effective immediately when digging on private property town worker must ask the homeowner if there are underground powerlines on their property and if so, the location of the lines.  Homeowner must sign a declaration to this effect.  Town will not be held responsible for damage resulting from unmarked or undeclared underground powerlines and cables.

 

In favour:                     Mayor Howell                         Deputy Mayor Peddle

                                     Councillor G. Blackwood       Councillor D. Howell

Opposed:                     0

Abstaining:                  0

Motion Carried.

 

It was further agreed that a letter be hand delivered to the homeowner to turn off power to the shed until the issue with the underground powerline is resolved.  Failure to comply with this request releases Council from all responsibility as Council is working on resolving the issue legally as required by Service NL.

Councillor Dwight Day joined the meeting electronically at 8:10 p.m.

Deputy Mayor Peddle left the meeting at 8:25 p.m.

Clerk/Manager was instructed to obtain the services of the electrician that previously did the connection, if possible, to replace the powerline.  Further to ensure the appropriate permits are obtained, inspection is completed and approval is received from Service NL as required. 

 

Chemical Feed Pump

Motion-4424-19-Councillor D. Howell/Councillor G. Blackwood

Resolve to purchase a new Chemical Feed Pump as per the pump currently in use.

 

In favour:                     Mayor Keith Howell               Councillor G. Blackwood

                                     Councillor D. Howell              Councillor D. Day (remote)

Opposed:                     0

Abstaining:                  0

Motion Carried.

 

Further, Clerk/Manager was instructed to check the supplier to determine how often the diaphragm should be replaced, if the screws in the unit head should then be replaced and if this would prolong the life of the Chemical Feed Pump.  If so, this will be included in the workers duties.

 

Adjournment:          

Motion-4425-19-Councillor D. Howell/Councillor G. Blackwood

Resolve that the meeting be adjourned.

 

In favour:                     Mayor Howell                         Councillor G. Blackwood
