Burin service boundary being reviewed
Some residents within the municipal boundary not receiving services
LW Consulting has been selected by Burin town council to develop the municipalities Service Boundary Extension Feasibility report.
The town received three proposals with LW Consulting coming in with a bid of $19,880.05.
Council voted in favor of accepting the bid during a meeting held Tuesday, Oct. 30.
Town manager Leo Hartson explained that report will be presented to government to identify if it is feasible for the town to expand its service boundary to residents past the Golden Sands Resort in Burin.
“They’re in our municipal boundary, but right now we’re not providing any services to residents,” Hartson said. “We’ve got a lot of property owners in that area.”
He explained that the final decision on whether or not the town can proceed with the extension of services will rest with the Department of Municipal Affairs.
Hartson said if approval is given the town would be able to provide services such as fire protection, street lighting, “there’d probably be road maintenance (and) snow clearing.”
