Vic­to­ria town coun­cil en­sur­ing it has enough in­sur­ance


Vic­to­ria town coun­cil is check­ing to see if it has enough in­sur­ance cov­er­age for the fire hall.

Coun­cil heard at its reg­u­lar March 8 meet­ing that the fire hall is in­sured with Baine Johnston for $ 251, 920, the ve­hi­cles are cov­ered un­der nor­mal ve­hi­cle in­sur­ance, with the old fire truck hold­ing pub­lic li­a­bil­ity and spe­cial perils cov­er­age, and the con­tents of the build­ing — in­clud­ing fridge, stove, bunker suits and equip­ment — are in­sured for $102,080. There is also cov­er­age of $19,705 for por­ta­ble fire­fight­ing equip­ment for a to­tal con­tents cov­er­age of $121,705.

Marg Ryan of Baine Johnston In­sur­ance ad­vised that the fire depart­ment do a full in­ven­tory on their equip­ment to make sure there is enough cov­er­age.

••• Coun­cil paid $ 3,164 to Con­cord Paving Lim­ited for some Class A stone and $2,835.90 to At­lantic Tech­ni­cal Ser­vices for work done on the chlo­ri­na­tion sys­tem, as part of $22,479.53 paid in bills at the meet­ing.

••• Coun­cil re­ceived in cor­re­spon­dence a let­ter from the prop­erty owner of # 30 Swansea Road com­plain­ing about a $ 25 fee she was charged last year to have her wa­ter turned off to re­place the main valve in her base­ment. She checked with other towns and found Carbonear only charges when some­one leaves their house for a pe­riod of time, and Sal­mon Cove only charges $10. Coun­cil dis­cussed the let­ter and de­cided not to change the pol­icy but will con­sider it dur­ing the prepa­ra­tion of its 2011 bud­get.

••• The owner of houses lo­cated at #7 to 29D Gully Path Road is ask­ing coun­cil to in­stall a sewer line along the road. He said he is hav­ing prob­lems with the runoff from Pen­ney’s Hill to his prop­er­ties. He has been asked to sign an ease­ment, which he said he is happy to do but re­minded coun­cil that they wouldn’t al­low him to cross town prop­erty when he wanted to in­stall a sewer line and tie it in to the main sewer line in front of the town hall. Coun­cil dis­cussed the mat­ter and gave it to the town plan­ning com­mit­tee to study be­fore the next reg­u­lar meet­ing.

••• A Mu­nic­i­pal Sym­po­sium will be held in Gan­der from April 29 to May 1. Mayor Arthur Burke told the new mem­bers of coun­cil that the sym­po­sium would be a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for them. Coun­cil will book two rooms at the ho­tel where the sym­po­sium is be­ing held for coun­cilors to at­tend the con­fer­ence.
