Stop-work or­der not is­sued

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE - editor@CBN­com­

A story con­cern­ing a residential de­vel­op­ment along Route 70 in Har­bour Grace in­cor­rectly re­ported that the town ap­proved a mo­tion to is­sue a stop-work or­der (“Town ap­proves stop work or­der,” July 21, 2015). At the meet­ing last Wed­nes­day, Coun. Gor­don Stone put for­ward a mo­tion to is­sue a stop-work or­der to the devel­oper, 10910 New­found­land Inc., and ar­range a meet­ing to set­tle is­sues the town has with progress on the pro­ject. Mayor Terry Barnes sub­se­quently added that the town should not is­sue or en­force a stop-work or­der un­til it gets a chance to meet with the devel­oper prior to coun­cil’s next public meet­ing in Au­gust. The mo­tion ap­proved by coun­cil in a 5-2 vote was to meet with the devel­oper be­fore the next meet­ing and, should the town’s con­cerns not be set­tled, is­sue a stop-work or­der dur­ing the sub­se­quent coun­cil meet­ing. The Com­pass re­grets any con­fu­sion this er­ror may have caused.
