Council meeting of July 21, 2010
Council approved the purchase of a 44" side mount brush mower to assist with the mowing of uneven locations.
Bert Hale was appointed as the Town's representative to the Moose Mountain Health Care Corp board.
The 'offer to purchase' 214 Coteau Street was approved as presented for a new mobile home. Lot 17 in the new subdivision was also given the green light. A new home will be moved in to that location.
Building permits were big on the agenda again this month. Building in Arcola continues at a fast pace. A new office building was approved at 507 Main Street which was the former School Division Office. A new detached garage was given approval for 716 Railway Avenue. A deck will be built onto the house at 220 Clare Street.
The bylaw to 'Recover Protective Services Costs' was given third reading and will come into force as of January 1, 2011. Costs will be incurred by any residents within the Town of Arcola and the RM of Brock #64 that use the services of the fire department. These costs will be billed to the appropriate property owners. It is important to check with your insurance agent to ensure that you have the proper coverage.
The Capital Budget for the next five years was presented and approved.
The green area in the Hazel Subdivisions that was donated in memory of Bill and Rhoda Hamilton, will be called 'Hamilton Park'. A design has been proposed for the development of the area. The first stages may still be completed this fall. Anyone wishing to donate time or make a donation to the project can do so at the town office. Rhoda Hamilton is planning to donate a bench in memory of her parents and encourages others to also make donations.
Discussion was held around starting the process for another 17 lots east of the current Hazel subdivisions. There are only nine residential lots available for sale at this time in the current area.
The next meeting will be August 18 at 7 pm.
