Obey Posted Speed Limits

We wish to advise all drivers that School commences this week and the safety of all children attending is imperative.  Based upon statistics from the Speed Radar sign that is within the School Zone with a speed limit of 30 km per hour, it is apparent that less than half of the drivers that use that area of Main Street are abiding by that posted speed limit.  The Town has engaged the RCMP in this matter and has requested periodic patrols throughout the school day to ensure drivers abide by posted speed limits.  We are requesting the cooperation of all drivers in this matter - please keep our children safe.

Dog Control Regulations

We wish to advise our residents that we've received a number of calls regarding roaming dogs.  Allowing dogs to roam within our municipal boundaries is strictly prohibited.  In accordance with the Dog Control Regulations Paragraph 10 it states - "Every owner of a dog within the Town shall keep such dog safely tethered or penned up at all times, except when it is under the immediate control of some person capable of controlling it at the time."  Paragraph 14 states - "Prosecution under these regulations may be taken summarily by the Council or any Police Constable."  Further, Paragraph 15 states - "Any person who is guilty of an offence against these regulations, or who acts in contravention of or fails to comply with any provisions thereof, or neglects or refuses to do so, shall be liable on summary conviction to a penalty not exceeding two hundred dollars ($200.00) or in default or payment thereof to imprisonment for a term not exceeding ninety (90) days or to both such fine and imprisonment." We respectfully ask that all dog owners abide by the Dog Control Regulations.

Great Job Parks & Rec Students

On behalf of the Town of St. George's we'd like to express our sincere thanks to Kate-Lynn Shears & Katrina Cressy for the great job they did this year as the Parks and Recreation Coordinators.  They both kept the children active and engaged in sports, crafts, education and a few adventures.  Their hard work was evident in the programs success with regular attendance by all children registered.  These two young women ensured that a schedule of events was created weekly and spent many hours creating fun games and activities for the children.  They attended weekly safely meetings where they participated actively.  To both Kate-Lynn and Katrina your hard work, deligence, motivation and thoughtfulness is indeed indicative of two exceptional workers who deserve an equally strong shout-out, again excellent job and many thanks.

Important Information Regarding Glass

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO WESTERN COMMUNITIES PLEASE IMPLEMENT IMMEDIATELY


A very serious health and safety issue has been brought to our attention regarding broken glass
being delivered to our recycle contractor in the blue recycle bags.

We want to emphasize the important message that GLASS DOES NOT GO INTO THE BLUE BAGS and we are
asking for your cooperation in ensuring these risks do not continue by directing your curbside
collection provider that effective immediately they are NOT to pick  up any blue bags from the curb
that contain glass containers. Please direct them to leave those bags at the curb with notification
to the resident that due to health and safety concerns, glass IS NOT accepted in the blue bags and
MUST be placed in the clear bag(s).

If the community feels it is important the take the contaminated blue bag and further educate the
residents to allow them to become more familiar with the new regulation, the contaminated blue
bag(s) must be placed in the clear bag stream as the entire bag will be contaminated with broken
glass.

Residents can still deliver glass beverage containers included in the beverage deposit program
(Wine, beer, pop) to either the retailer, or the green depot for your deposit reimbursement; all
other glass is to be placed into the clear garbage bag.


We are attempting to reach as many communities in the Bay St. George and Corner Brook & Area
Sub-regions; however, we need your assistance in passing this message along to your employees,
collection service provider, and residents.

As this is a very serious health and safety issue we will be following up on this email to ensure
glass is removed from the blue recycle bags permanently.  We are requesting that you please advise
our office that you have implemented this policy with your own curbside collectors and are doing
everything in your power to ensure glass is put into the proper waste stream (clear bag).  We
cannot express enough the importance of this message and appreciate your cooperation in this
matter.

If you have any questions regarding this request, please contact Pauline Anderson at 632- 2275 or
panderson@wrwm.ca.  Also, please notify Pauline to confirm your participation in implementing this
important initiative in your community’s curbside collection program.

For general questions regarding our Sort It Western Program, please contact our main office number
632-2922 or toll free 1-844-437-2922.

Town Roads - Traffic Regulations

We wish to advise our residents that the Town Office has received multiple complaints regarding both on and off road vehicles speeding on our Roads.  Regulations are created to keep all residents safe and speeding on our main and side roads is both illegal and against regulations.  Speeding has become a safety issue for many; especially our children.  We implore everyone to slow down, be cognizant of children at play, residents walking and other traffic.  We've met with the RCMP on this issue and have requested their assistance, expect to see a larger RCMP presence in this community.  Please slow down, obey the rules of the road and watch for children.

Unfortunately due to the amount of run off from above the hill which includes Main Street and despite our best efforts this area is still quite slippery. If you must use this area while walking or driving, please use extreme caution.  Once spring arrives this issue will be addressed by Council.  Please be safe.
