    From the desk of the CAO...

    Happy New Year Port Alice residents. I hope everyone had an incredible Christmas and New Year’s.

    This is the second installment in my monthly reports and from what I’ve heard, my December editorial was well received.

    Last month many of you noticed large ships anchored off our shores on five (5) different occasions receiving municipal water. That bulk water purchase was authorized by municipal Council on July 12, 2017 through resolution that states,

    THAT the municipality welcomes the opportunity to assist Marine Harvest in their efforts to control the harmful effects of ocean parasites on their Atlantic salmon stocks during the summer months.

    AND THAT the municipality agrees to sell Marine Harvest municipal water at the metered rates

    specified in the “Village of Port Alice Rates and Fees Bylaw” plus any additional related costs.

    AND FURTHER THAT the availability and frequency of such water sales will be at the discretion of the

    Public Works Department.

    The public can be reassured that at “no time” during the transfer of water to the ship was our water collection, storage and distribution system placed at risk, nor was the health and well-being of our community. Public works staff closely monitored the water system during each of the five (5) transfer operations. Sufficient volumes of water were maintained in the system in each instance to support full fire protection. The decision to authorize the sale of municipal water was made only after a detailed review by staff and myself. Marine Harvest is responsible for all costs associated with the supply of water.

    The Recycling Depot has now been brought under the umbrella of municipal operations. The posting for the new municipal position is now being advertised, with a closing date of January 9, 2018. Please note the following new hours of operation:

    Wednesday 12pm to 6pm Saturday 10am to 4pm

    We would like to thank the Port Alice Recycling Society for their years of dedication and service to our community. Without the hard work of the society, recycling would not be where it is today in Port Alice.

    The work to build our new 300,000-gallon reservoir above Rupert Avenue is still on schedule, with an expected completion date of late January, or early February, weather permitting. Our contractor advised the material to build the epoxy coated steel tank has now been received at their yard and will soon be transported to the site.

    The completion of the major upgrade to our waste water treatment plant has experienced a setback. Staff is working closely with the contractor’s design-build team to address this matter. I will endeavor to keep you updated as the project progresses towards completion.

    The detailed design work for the marina project is nearing completion. Council on December 13 th approved the

    layout for the project. Copies of that plan are available at the Municipal Office.

    If you have any comments, questions or concerns with my monthly report or anything related to municipal operations, please drop by to see me. My door is always open to you, the citizens of our amazing community.

    In closing, from my family to yours, I would like to wish everyone a safe and prosperous New Year.

    ** Please note regular Monday to Friday Hours are still in effect for outside depot
