Tom Gislason, elected by acclamation, was sworn in as the newest councillor.
The 11:01 p.m. – 6 a.m. curfew by-law, for residents 17 years and under, received second, third and final reading at the Sept. 26 meeting.
According to Mayor MacKinnon, the town administration office didn’t receive any public feedback.
“I’ve heard only good things,” said Councillor Bernie Hornby.
The curfew is in effect immediately.
Industrial Campground By-law
Five people attended the public hearing to discuss amendments to the land-use by-law.
“We need an industrial campground, but it needs to be a stand alone business. It should be separate from an existing business,” said resident Brad Peavoy.
The by-law presented will enable businesses in the industrial area to provide camping facilities for temporary workers, when required, as long as the site meets the requirements defined.
Councillor Jim Ahn motioned to implement a minimum requirement clause of eight camping stalls per acre.
In addition, Councillor Brenda Burridge recommended that each site have its own bear proof garbage container and a minimum weekly disposal pick up.
The land use by-law will be revised to reflect the councilor’s recommendations and review it again at the Oct.11 meeting for second and third reading.
