FD Training Records

The ATIPP Office advised that “a disclosure of personal information is presumed to be an unreasonable invasion of a third party’s personal privacy where the personal information relates to employment or educational history. The training each fireman received would fall under educational history. Therefore leaving the list in a room open to the public could be considered an invasion of their privacy. However, the list could be stored in a different room not open to the public. When Council is holding meetings to determine training needs and approve training they could be retrieved and temporarily placed (while the meeting is in progress) in Council Chambers or the Fire Hall Meeting Room”.

 

Committees

Finance:                     Gas Tax Audit

The deadline for the Gas Tax Audit was March 31st, 2013. It has still not been received. The Audit was completed March 1st, 2013 and the Auditor then advised it would be received by the town within three weeks. The Auditor advised it would be sent this week.

Canada Day/Fireworks

General Agreement to donate $100.00 to the Habitat Committee towards the Firework Display for the Canada Day Celebrations as per policy.

 

Public Works:           Water Report

                                    Satisfactory

 

Quarterly Water Report

Noticeable improvement from the previous report in the THM and HAA levels. The THM’s are slightly above the guideline and the HAA’s are below the guideline. The improvement seems to be a result of line flushing. It is therefore recommended that the down harbour line be flushed mid summer since the only complaints we have come from that area.

 

Drinking Water Safety Annual Report

The 2012 Drinking Water Safety Annual Report compiled by the Water Resource Management Division is available for viewing at the Town Office.

 

Clean up Week Report

Clean up week was a huge success with 20 loads of metals and materials brought to the Transfer Station. The tipping fee total was $1,066.80. By sorting the materials, the town saved $1,936.35 in tipping fees as the metals were free and sorted construction and demolition materials were $10.00 per tonne instead of the normal rate of $117.00 per tonne.

 

Fire Dept:                  FES Meeting – Gander

Fire Chief will be asked if he’s available and interested to attend this meeting. The other firemen who requested approval to attend can attend as well.

 

BA Notice of Replacement

Survive Air has been purchased by Honeywell. The Warrior BA’s meet the NFPA Standards and are safe for use but they do not meet Honeywell’s own standards. Honeywell has therefore announced that beginning in the Fall of 2014 they will replace all Warrior BA’s free of cost. Further information will be provided during the coming year.

 

(Councillor M. Peddle arrived at the meeting at 8:30 p.m.)

A letter has been received from Carmanville Valufood Owners stating that as of May 13, 2013 the 50/50 funds will no longer be donated to the Fire Dept.

The letter will be forwarded to the Fire Dept. for their records and a copy will be kept on file.
