Town Office Crop

Niverville’s town council met for a very brief meeting on Tuesday, January 4 at 9:00 a.m. Councillor Kevin Stott was excused due to illness.

Other than the standard review of the cheque register for the last two weeks, there were only three items on the agenda.

A few town residents had donated money to Niverville’s firefighters for the purchase of personal protective equipment. Council approved the issuing of tax receipts for a total of $2,050 to those who donated.

A zoning change was requested for a subdivision in the business park. The company that owns the property, Metro Centre Ltd., requested permission to divide a 2.5-acre lot into two 1.25-acre lots. Council approved this request.

Councillor Nathan Dueck then added an item to the agenda and requested more information regarding who issues tickets to vehicles that remain parked on snow routes.

It was clarified for Dueck that parked vehicles would be issued tickets by the bylaw enforcement officer.

Mayor Dyck urged town residents to check the town’s website or social media pages to make sure they are up to date on snow routes and parking bans. He also pointed out that at the beginning of each year a notice is sent to each mailbox in town outlining the snow routes.

“We don’t want to give people tickets, but we need to be able to clear streets,” Dyck said.

Mayor Dyck also mentioned some problems that occurred with recycling pick up on Thursday, December 30. Due to the extreme cold, recycling pickup was not completed. The company that Niverville contracts for recycling services has requested that any town residents who were missed put out their recycling this Thursday, January 6, even if it is their “off” week.

In discussion with Dyck regarding the worsening pandemic, he wrapped up the meeting by saying, “One thing I’ve learned from Niverville… is that we’re a pretty hearty bunch. We’re there to help one another during these times and that always gives me comfort.”
