Mayor Howell welcomed Guest Linda Bailet and Hayward Morgan to the meeting and invited them to present their concerns.

 

(Deputy Mayor Peddle arrived at the meeting at 7:33 p.m.)

 

Concerns identified by Linda Bailet:

1.     Chlorinated water is currently not available at the Interpretation Center.  Since the Safety Program was not adopted by Council, the Outside Worker cannot enter the confined space at the Chlorination Chamber to connect the chlorinated water for the Interpretation Center.  Hayward Morgan prepared the Safety Program for the town and stated the minimum OH&S requirements were met, the program was developed through communications with OH&S, Municipal Safety Council, and other towns and he is available to address any questions or concerns they may have about the program.  

2.     Community Garden Extension.  Request Council supply fill and labour to extend the Community Garden in the location previously approved by Council.  

3.     Beach Clean-up is scheduled for June 8th, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.  Council provides gloves and garbage bags.  Members were invited to participate in the clean-up or assist with the BBQ following the clean-up.

Linda and Hayward thanked Council for giving them the opportunity to bring their concerns forward.  Mayor Howell thanked them both for their presentation.  Linda and Hayward left the meeting at 8:20 p.m.

 

Council’s response to the concerns:

1.     Beach clean-up – Mayor Howell encouraged members to participate if available.

2.     Community Gardens – Town Worker will take soil from back of Fire Hall and use to build up land for garden.  Members felt we may have enough fill.  Clerk/Manager will then check the price of topsoil and amount required and let members know.

3.     Safety Program – Confined Space – Question raised – does the Clerk/Manager require the Confined Space course – will be checked into and result brought back to Council.

 

Concerns                    # 3 – Safety Program– continued.

                                    Motion-4372-19-Deputy Mayor Peddle/Councillor G. Blackwood

                                    Resolve to adopt the Safety Program as listed below:

                                    - Carmanville Fire Department Membership Application – Rev. 1

                                    - Internal Complaint Policy

                                    - Working Alone – Health and Safety Policy/Program

                                    - Fall Protection – Health and Safety Policy/Program

Business 

Arising:                      Community Garden

                                    Topic was addressed above.

 

Blow downs

Clerk/Manager was asked to contact resident regarding concerns brought forward by the Habitat Committee on cutting and removing blow downs in the area of the Trail. Members were in agreement to have the resident meet with the Habitat Chair for clarification of area no cutting or removing permitted.

                                    

Screens

There were discrepancies noted in the details on fabricating the screen frames by the vendors who submitted quotes.  Members agreed all vendors should have the same information/specs, etc. to submit a quote.  Therefore, it was agreed to call vendors, inform them that our worker would bring the screen frame to them for viewing and request they submit their quote to the town office.

 

Order Enforcement

Order is currently being complied with.

 

Business

Arising:                      Water Complaint

All residents in the area of the water complaint were contacted by the town worker.  There were only 2 complaints of smell on the water out of all the residents contacted.  The town worker opened the fire hydrant at the end of Main Street South and let it run for a day rather than turning off water to the remainder of town for 4 or 5 hours resulting in a boil order.  Clerk/Manager will contact the 2 residents regarding the following potential solutions:

- suggest they hook up a lawn hose and let it run for awhile

- suggest they flush out the hot water tank

- pass on information obtained about fiberglass tubes in the hot water tanks sometimes creates a smell on the water.

 

Waterline Leak

Members were in agreement that the waterline leak at 352 Main is the responsibility of the homeowner.

 

Symposium Notes 

Conflict of Interest was a hot topic at the MNL Symposium.  Members were reminded that if a councillor or relative of the councillor (as defined by the Municipalities Act), have a monetary interest in a topic brought forward at a council meeting, they must declare their conflict and leave the meeting before any discussion takes place.  Further if a previous undeclared conflict of interest is brought forward, it has to be investigated and if found to be a conflict, council has no choice but to vacate the seat of that councillor.

 

Committees

Finance:                     Debit Card

                                    Motion-4373-19-Councillor D. Howell/Councillor M. Wheaton

Canada Day & Beach Clean-up – Linda informed members of the Habitat involvement and commitment to Canada Day and Beach Clean-up and requested more involvement from Council Members and Staff.

Garbage Pickup at Center – Linda had concerns with garbage in the outside bins at the Center not being picked up on a regular basis - Outside Worker will be asked to include garbage pickup weekly.

Storage space – Removal – Linda expressed concerns regarding the removal of the storage space previous council had approved.  Members advised it was not built to code therefore it was removed.

Bus Shelters with concrete foundations – Linda asked if the 3 bus shelters with concrete foundations on Main Street South were approved by Council.  Shelters seem to be in the Transportation and Works right of way.  Worker will take pictures to determine next course of action required.
