BNJC Meeting

Councillor L. Bailet attended the recent BNJC Meeting in Wesleyville. There was not enough representation to conduct their elections at that meeting. They discussed Health Care Needs, in particular the hospital in Brookfield is aging and in need of repairs/upgrade or a new Health Care Facility. There will be an email sent out to the towns in our area asking for participants to seek help from Government in this regard.

There was discussion regarding Regional Safety Training. The BNJC Administrative Staff have already met with John Dicks from Municipal Safety Council who has begun scheduling Regional Safety Training.

There was also discussion regarding the RCMP in Wesleyville who require sleds for transporting victims of accidents regarding skidoos. Councillor Bailet has contacted the Carmanville Detachment to see if they also require sleds and if so, maybe both detachments could work together to find a solution. They discussed purchasing large/expensive pieces of equipment that could be shared regionally and could maybe be subsidized by Government. Members were informed the Regional Water Operator position has been terminated. Although there was a 3 month extension approved, there were not enough towns that supported the extension. The vehicle purchased for the Regional Water Operator has since been bought out by the Town of CWT.

Guest:                         Dwight Day   

Deputy Mayor Peddle welcomed Dwight and Tina Day to the Meeting and invited Dwight to begin his presentation. He came to discuss Motion 3568-14 – That the Resident would be charged $100.00 for the Prank Fire Call that resulted in deploying the Fire Department members and equipment. He defended his (their) actions stating that they did not know if the fire ban was on and were concerned about the size of the fire in the fire pit close to other property. He felt they took the proper steps and the calls they made were backed up by the RCMP who investigated and did not have any grounds to lay charges.

 

He also discussed the delay in receiving his Record of Employment and the fact that it stated Quit when he left his employment as the Part time worker with the town. He was informed that when he submitted his notice in October there was no shortage of work and we hired someone else to fill the Part time position so the ROE that was issued in November had to state “Quit”. Deputy Mayor Peddle thanked them for coming and they left the meeting at 7:50 p.m.

 

Motion-3578-14-Councillor S. Winsor/Councillor M. Bailet

Resolved to rescind Motion 3568-14 and write new letter outlining the seriousness of the matter and the potential risk to other citizens because of the deployment of truck and resources.
