Niverville’s town council held a brief virtual meeting on Tuesday, May 4 at 9:00 a.m.

Early in the meeting, CAO Eric King requested an approval for updating the name, policy, and advertising rates for the digital boards at the CRRC. Also included in this change is the advertising on the boards for the arena’s Zamboni. This motion was unanimously carried and approved.

Mayor Myron Dyck then made a motion to accept all the cheques written on behalf of the town since the last meeting. Councillor Kevin Stott asked a question in regards to some unusually large paycheques made out to the fire department. King was unable to provide details as to why the dollar amounts were larger than expected, so he promised to get back to council in this regard.

After a few clarifying questions about other cheques from Councillors Stott and Nathan Dueck, the cheques in the town’s registry were all approved.

King made a motion to approve Niverville’s financial statements for the months of January, February, and March 2021. This motion was approved and carried unanimously.

A motion was also made by King to approve the final audited budget for the year 2020. This motion was also approved and carried unanimously.

Some new business was put before council at this time. A request was made by the owners of 38 Briarfield Court to extend the time given for the return of a security deposit. The usual amount of time granted for this refund is two years but an extension of one additional year was requested. Council unanimously approved this request.

The next item on the agenda was a request by the owners of 10 Cedar Drive to turn their property into condo units.

If allowed, this request would be subject to a couple of conditions. Number one, the condominium declaration would need to include parking lot maintenance, parking spots, drainage, and joint sewer and water, perimeter fencing, and sign agreements with the nearby 290 Main Street.

Number two, the property owners would need to obtain a conditional use permit if required.

There was considerable discussion amongst the councillors regarding this decision.

Councillor Dueck suggested that a new condition be attached to the proposal, and thus one was added: “that any outstanding items from past development agreements be met.”

Councillor Stott abstained from the vote due to a family connection to the property in question. The other councillors approved the motion and it was carried.

Finally, Mayor Dyck used his mayoral report as a reminder for Niverville citizens to fill out their census questionnaire. He stressed the importance of an accurate and complete census count, since much of the town’s funding is decided on a per capita basis.
