North Hat­ley’s mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil meet­ing on De­cem­ber 2nd, at­tended by four res­i­dents, was a short one. There was a lit­tle dis­cus­sion about the wa­ter plant which is be­ing built. The pip­ing of the new sys­tem will be­gin to be in­stalled in the spring and fin­ished dur­ing the sum­mer.

A de­fib­ril­la­tor has been do­nated to the com­mu­nity by Rachel Pol­lock, the daugh­ter of the late Sam Pol­lock. “This one will be in­stalled in the Com­mu­nity Cen­tre,” said Leonard Castag­ner, the town’s Gen­eral Man­ager. The town al­ready has three pub­lic au­to­mated ex­ter­nal de­fib­ril­la­tors (AED’s): one at the fire hall; one at the Con­naught Home; and one that is shared be­tween the Curl­ing Club and the Golf Club, de­pend­ing on the sea­son. The town will be or­ga­niz­ing a train­ing course on the use of a de­fib­ril­la­tor as soon as pos­si­ble.

The topic of the pos­si­ble de­vel­op­ment of a se­nior’s res­i­dence, which was dis­cussed much be­fore the elec­tion, did not come up at the meet­ing.
