Prop­erty dis­pute arises in Spa­niard’s Bay



A res­i­dent is claim­ing own­er­ship of a piece of prop­erty on New Har­bour Road that was re­cently sold by ten­der. The res­i­dent says the prop­erty, which was turned over to the town in 1997 be­cause of tax ar­rears, was never owned by the per­son who owed the taxes. Coun­cil de­cided to ask town lawyers for a le­gal opin­ion on the mat­ter.


Town man­ager Tony Ryan told coun­cil town en­gi­neers need to visit the out­fall at North­ern Cove. In his re­port, he said the lines are flow­ing but have slowed be­cause of block­ages in the wa­ter. Work also needs to be done on the lift sta­tion by the wharf. A pre­lim­i­nary es­ti­mate for the work that needs to be done is $500,000.


Af­ter a re­quest from a res­i­dent on De­laney’s Cres­cent, coun­cil de­cided to in­stall street lighting along the road. Two street lights will be in­stalled, one at the in­ter­sec­tion of Ridge Road and the other on the pole in front of the Porter res­i­dence.

Deputy mayor Tony Men­chions told coun­cil res­i­dent Jaya Pham was named Peo­ple’s Choice at the Miss Teen New­found­land and Labrador com­pe­ti­tion on the week­end, and coun­cil de­cided to have Mayor John Drover write her a let­ter of con­grat­u­la­tions.


Coun­cil paid $4,598.35 in bills at the meet­ing.
