April 7, 2020                     

               

Our world has certainly changed over the past few weeks with the onset of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our Town is adapting to the recommendations of the Government and Health Officials as best we can to continue to provide town services and keep our workers safe at the same time. We currently have a skeleton staff working, that being our Town Clerk/Manager and our Maintenance Worker. Please remember the office is closed to the public and payments should be made by mailing a cheque or sending an e-transfer to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

 

We thank the businesses that have closed abiding by the recommendations set out by Government and Health Officials and we realize you are facing a stressful and financial burden during this period. We thank the businesses that have remained open as deemed essential services. We thank them for the changes they have made to protect their employees and the public. We thank all essential workers for continuing to work during this stressful period and for putting other’s needs above their own to provide essential services. We also want to thank our residents and especially our youth that are following the social distancing and self-isolation practices that are in place. We sympathize with the 2020 graduates that cannot have their graduation celebrations in May and hope a solution will be found to postpone their graduation to a later date.

 

Our community has a number of seniors including a Personal Care Home and we have a number of residents whose health is compromised. It is up to all of us to do our part not only to protect ourselves because this virus attacks all age groups but also to protect our neighbours that are seniors or that have underlying health issues. We encourage all residents to please stay home, practice social distancing, wash your hands often and do not visit friends or family even during Birthdays, Easter and Mother’s Day.

 

There are daily updates on VOCM at 12:30 p.m. from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and at 2:00 from Premier Dwight Ball, Minister John Haggie and Chief Medical Officer Janice Fitzgerald, that you can avail of to keep up on the latest information regarding the pandemic. Together we will get through this difficult time while keeping ourselves and our community safe. Please stay safe and have a Happy Easter.

 

Mayor Keith Howell

& Council

Dear Residents: 

We are at a critical point in our efforts to flatten the curve on COVID-19. We are all working hard to do this in our communities. We have to take care of one another, now more than ever. 

The Easter long weekend is upon us. We know that this normally means getting together with family and loved ones to celebrate, and to eat together. But this year is different. It has to be. What we do this weekend will impact what happens as we move forward. 

You need to stay home this weekend. You should not be gathering; you should not be socializing with others; you should not be having Easter dinners with people outside of your immediate household.

We encourage you to connect with others, but at a distance. Be sure to call your family and friends. If you need any mental health supports to get you through, please refer to the province’s resource list here: 
https://www.gov.nl.ca/covid-19/resources-2/

I know that this is hard. But we all need to stay home and stay safe, for everyone.  

Sincerely, 

Mayor Keith Howell

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.
