Cumberland County sends second-hand smoke policy back to staff
Cumberland County municipal council’s last meeting covered many important items.
There was a presentation from our EMO co-ordinator, Mike Johnson, with an update on the Oxford sinkhole.
The hole is still there and is being monitored and a decision on the next step is forthcoming.
A short discussion on twostream recycling as it pertains to the commercial sector was held
and it was decided to include them in the process.
There was a discussion on the Wheeler report regarding fracking with each session getting deeper into the subject.
A borrowing resolution for the Pugwash water project and Parrsboro waste water project were approved and our new flag policy was approved with Option 2 which will have a designated flag pole at each service center.
Our protection from secondhand smoke policy went back to staff for another look with designated smoking areas a stumbling block. Our health and safety policy was approved as were five grants to various organizations. See the county for more information on that.
We had a report from our fire service co-ordinator that included the Southampton fire department’s washroom facilities. Council will have a presentation in the near future to deal with the issue. This has been going on for a few years.
Remembrance Day was discussed with each service covered.
Our next council will include the election of deputy warden for the next year.
The public can always attend council and listen to the discussions if interested!
