Fire­works

Carolyn Hutchin­son, Events Co­or­di­na­tor for the In­ver­ary Re­sort pre­sented in­for­ma­tion about a pro­posed fire­works dis­play to hap­pen in July 2019 as part of a pri­vate wed­ding. Hutchin­son was seek­ing per­mis­sion to set off the fire­works from Kid­ston Is­land which is owned by the Vil­lage of Bad­deck. A pri­vate fire­works com­pany has been hired to pro­duce the show, but agree­ments must still be worked out with the Bad­deck Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment and the Bad­deck Lions who op­er­ate the ferry to the is­land. Once de­tails of the plan have been re­ceived by the Com­mis­sion, they will move to ap­prove use of the is­land.

Over­pass

Paul Har­vey, Chair of the Trail Over­pass Com­mit­tee pre­sented an up­date to coun­cil on the multi-use trail and over­pass be­ing planned for Bad­deck. Har­vey said he does not know the sta­tus of the bridge ten­der or con­struc­tion time­line. His group has been tasked with ac­quir­ing ease­ments and right-of-ways to and from the over­pass.

Three prop­er­ties that be­long to Mar­itime Inns & Re­sorts (Sil­ver Dart Lodge), res­i­dent Wil­lie Roberts and res­i­dent Eileen Wood­ford have been iden­ti­fied as where a 30ft wide right-of-way could be con­structed in from the high­way where lights from recre­ational ve­hi­cles will not reach the high­way. All three prop­erty own­ers have in­di­cated their will­ing­ness to have the right-of-way built across their land.

Har­vey said the trail as­so­ci­a­tion would pre­fer the ease­ments put in the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s name as the longevity of the trail group is un­cer­tain. Har­vey came be­fore the Com­mis­sion to ask for as­sis­tance in hir­ing a lawyer to ne­go­ti­ate the land agree­ments – be it the Com­mis­sion’s lawyer, the Mu­nic­i­pail­ity’s lawyer or a pri­vate lawyer. Main­te­nance Re­port

On March 10, a bro­ken ser­vice sad­dle caused wa­ter to leak on Twin­ing Street but the Pub­lic Works team quickly fixed it that day be­fore any ma­jor in­ter­rup­tion in ser­vice re­sulted.

BYC Bath­rooms

At the Fe­bru­ary Com­mis­sion meet­ing, Bad­deck Yacht Club Chair Eileen Wood­ford pre­sented on­go­ing con­cerns about the use and main­te­nance of bath­room fa­cil­i­ties at the club (see page 1 story). At the March 14 meet­ing, Mor­ri­son said an ex­am­i­na­tion of fund­ing records showed that the Vil­lage has given the Yacht Club in ex­cess of $20,000 since 2004. Com­mis­sion­ers voted to pro­vide $1500 for the com­ing sea­son with no in­ten­tion to pro­vide fund­ing in the fu­ture.
