Business

Arising:                      Rec Electrical Tender Update

General Agreement to set up a meeting with our MHA Eli Cross, Councillor Sam Winsor and Clerk/Manager to try and resolve the issue or get the required stamp.

 

Business

Arising:                      W/S Update

Engineer responded verbally to the letter he received. Said he is willing to meet with Council to discuss the issue if that is Council’s decision. He advised that he has information and written documents that support the delay in the tendering process. General Agreement to wait and meet with him early in the spring to ensure the tendering process proceeds in a timely manner.

 

The Capital Works Application and the New Building Canada Fund Application have been submitted – 1 Electronically and 1 by Mail as the MSIS System would not accept the application due to the high volume of applications being submitted at that time.

 

Waterline Flushing

General Agreement to postpone the line flushing until the week of November 17 due to the Remembrance Day Holiday on Tuesday, November 11th, 2014.

 

Remote Attendance

Waiting on response to request for information from PMA and other Towns.

 

MAA – Ballot – Central Director

Committees

Finance:                     3rd Quarter Financial Reports

Circulated and reviewed by members. Arrears are being worked and there has been some improvement. There will be more time spent on collections when the extension to the office has been completed.

Garbage/Trail behind Rink

General Agreement to send Outside Worker up to check out, take pictures and pick up the garbage reported on the trail behind the rink. Further to check out/pick up the garbage on the private property along Route 330.

 

Potholes/erosion – roads

Complaints have been received regarding the erosion along the shoulder of the road in several places, potholes and the water problem at Goodyear’s Hill that should have been taken care of. General Agreement to contact Transportation and Works and see what can be done to correct these issues.

 

Fire Dept:                  911 Boundary Map

Reviewed and approved by members. General Agreement that it would be completed, signed and returned by the Clerk/Manager.

 

Town Pickup/Trailer-Community Bonfire

A request to use the town pickup and trailer to pick up alders/trees from a non-resident’s private property to use in the community bonfire was discussed by members. General Agreement that this request would not be approved due to the precedent it would set with clearing/picking up alders/trees from private property.

 

Pumper/Child Passenger

On Friday, October 24th at 2:45 p.m. a Councillor observed the pumper pull into the Fire Hall parking lot. A fireman stepped out on the passenger side, followed by a young boy of about four years of age. The pumper had just delivered water to fill up wells in Frederickton and Noggin Cove. This practice is against town policy and definitely an insurance/liability concern. General Agreement that a letter be written to the Fire Chief to inform members of the incident and the seriousness of the situation had an accident occurred or a fire call come in when the child was in the vehicle. Further to remind them that when they take children in the vehicles as in a parade or field trip event, they have to notify the Clerk/Manager in advance as the insurance provider must be informed to ensure coverage in the event of an accident.
