Call to order:Chair @ 7:30 p.m.

 

This Meeting was called to discuss the following issues:

-                   - The Amendment to the Community Enhancement Employment Program Application

-                   - The Bear Problem on Noggin Cove Road and the Interpretation Trail.

 

CEEP Amendment Application

We have received approval for $25,000. Because this amount is much less than what we originally applied for, we have to submit an amended application. The approved amount of $25,000 will give us 400 hours for a Carpenter/Foreman and 1107 hours for Labourers.

 

Because the Rec. Center is unlikely to be available to complete all the renovations we had planned, we have also included work to be done at the Interpretation Center on our amended application. This additional work would involve replacing siding on the Center, constructing steps to the existing patio on the back of the building, and reinforcing the rails on the existing patio.

 

Motion-3602-14-Councillor L. Bailet/Councillor K. Blackwood

Resolved that Council hereby accepts this offer of funding for Project Number 17-CEEP-15-204: Municipal Reconstruction and Beautification from the Community Enhancement Employment Program for $25,000.00 in the provincial district of Bonavista North.

It was further agreed that the project would start this Monday, November 3rd, 2014 if approval is received and the pit run can be delivered by that time.

Arising:                      Rec Electrical Tender Update

MHA Eli Cross met with the new Minister of Government Services at the MNL Convention. Copies of all documents related to the Rec Tender Problem and an official request for an inspection of the building had been forwarded to the previous Minister of Government Services about a month ago. The assistant to the previous Minister is meeting with the new Minister of Government Services to go over the documents and see if they can resolve this issue. There should be an update within the next few days.

 

W/S Update

Town Engineer advised that the Tender has not been called for the W/S Project (Sewer Outfall) and he doesn’t expect it to be called till early Spring and be ready to start by May 1st, 2015. He said he has been unable to do the Tender Call until the type of plant/treatment was decided as that would determine how the outfall has to be done – the Outfall Tender Call has to match the plant that needs to go there.

Motion-3599-14-Councillor S. Winsor/Councillor M. Bailet

Resolved that we write the Town Engineer outlining Council’s displeasure with the course of action that has taken place to date.

Guest:                         Noggin Cove LSD Committee

 

Mayor Howell welcomed the Representatives of the Noggin Cove LSD Committee to the meeting. Spokesperson Cindy Gillingham said they understand from Municipal Affairs that before they can go any further in their attempt to obtain water for their community, they have to know if Carmanville would agree to amalgamation. They understand that if Carmanville and Noggin Cove agree to amalgamate they would both have to provide written confirmation of their intent to amalgamate to Municipal Affairs. Following this, a free assessment would be provided by Municipal Affairs. Noggin Cove Residents have not yet voted on amalgamation. The Committee was hoping to get a response from Carmanville first as to whether or not we are interested in taking them on. They would then present this to their residents and take a vote regarding amalgamation.   She pointed out that the majority of the residents did not want water and the majority may not want to amalgamate.

 

(Councillor Kim Blackwood arrived at the meeting at 7:15 p.m.)

 

Mayor Howell thanked the Noggin Cove LSD Committee for coming. The Clerk/Manager will talk to Municipal Affairs for further clarification regarding the above and report back to Council.
