Mayor's Christmas Message 2019
|Mayor’s Christmas & New Year Message On behalf of myself, the Deputy Mayor, Councillors and Staff, I’d like to wish the Residents of the Town of St. George’s a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May you experience peace, joy, happiness and good health throughout the Christmas season and in the coming New Year. We are extremely grateful and privileged to have served this great community throughout 2019 and we thank you for your commitment to community and especially your continued support. This year has been a busy year for the Town, we’ve addressed a number of water & sewer leaks, conducted road work included a significant number of patch paving jobs and worked tirelessly to get our Stadium up to current Health & Safety Code so the doors could once again be opened this fall. The Divestiture Committee, along with Council and Staff saw years of hard work finally become a reality with the construction of the St. George’s Marina which consists of 3 floating docks, walkway, gangways and a launch way. The Marina was 100% funded by the Federal Government and we thank our MP Gudie Hutchings for her support in this project. The Firehall Extension has been completed and now houses all fire vehicles, additionally we were approved for a new Fire Truck which should arrive the summer of 2020. Our Chlorination Building was upgraded with fencing to protect our well head area. Ventilation along with a shower was installed in the building to protect our staff from any safety issues from chlorine use. We are happy to announce that our residential Tax Structure has not changed and there will be no increases to taxation in 2020 for our residential properties. We did receive funding to replace our current water tank and we anticipate this project to commence this coming spring/summer. We have applied for funding for another drilled well, a genset for the chlorination building and 1.5 kilometers of paving. Our focus remains on providing our residents with clean and safe drinking water and the longevity of our wells. We welcomed Claude Bennett to our staff as the Assistant Lead Hand. The council would like to thank the Staff for another year of professionalism, reliability, hard work, exceptional knowledge and their attention to a safe workplace. The greatness of our Staff is evidenced by the quality of their work and the effort they make everyday to provide the best service possible. Many thanks to our corporate sponsor Leading Edge Credit Union who has graciously donated free skates for the Family Skate program which enables families to partake in recreation weekly in a fun environment at no cost. Special thanks are extended to our community volunteers, without your generous enthusiasm and support our community would not be able to succeed in the way that it does. To our volunteer Fire Fighter’s lead by Chief Theo Bennett we are grateful for your continued service and the risks your willing to take in order to keep our community safe. To our residents we send a heartfelt thank you. Our beautiful community would not be what it is today without having so many amazing residents. We hope that you share in our belief that the Town of St. George’s is a strong sustainable community that is an exceptional place to live! We have prepared and approved a balanced budget for 2020 which sees no increase of taxation to our residents with the mill rate and water & sewer rates remaining the same. Additionally, there are no increases to fees such as building and general repair permits. In closing, just a reminder to subscribe to our newsletter through the town website, you’ll get emails about all upcoming events as well as information specific to the Town. If you haven’t provided your phone number for the Boil Water Advisories & Town Notifications please call the office and provide either your cell or home phone number. The Office will be closed from December 23rd, 2019, and will re-open on January 2nd, 2020. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Town of St. George’s. Daniel Conway Mayor Town of St. George’s
