Guest:                         Janice Coles

Mayor Howell welcomed Janice Coles to the meeting. She discussed the zero tolerance for dirt bikes on the roads and said there is nowhere for the kids to ride their dirt bikes. She wondered if there was any possibility of putting trails through the woods for the bikes through projects as the existing skidoo trails are mostly bog. She also wanted to know about using Noggin Cove Head or an old quarry for dirt bike use.

She stated that there is nothing here for the teenagers (age 13 up).

 

(Councillor Winsor arrived at 7:35 p.m.)

 

Members explained that for Council to set up bike trails they would have to accept responsibility for the trails and have to provide maintenance/upkeep on the trails. At this time, Council has no property that can be used to set up trails. Noggin Cove Head is either Crown Land or privately owned land and the town only owns and maintains the road which is considered a public road so dirt bikes are not able to use that either.

 

Suggestions were made by members to use the school or Rec Center to set up sports or game nights for the teenagers. Volunteers would be needed to organize and supervise these events. It was suggested to approach the Rec. Committee regarding the above.

 

Mayor Howell thanked Janice for coming. She left the meeting at 7:55 p.m.
