Lunenburg Harbour Water Quality Monitoring Program - Update

 

In the spirit of World Oceans Day, the Town of Lunenburg would like to outline our voluntary water quality monitoring program for 2018.

Lunenburg Town Council Meeting Digest - May 22, 2018

 

Committee Recommendations

• Planning Advisory Committee: Council voted to leave the Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use Bylaw unchanged, as the PAC feels that the current range of commercial uses is appropriate. Council asked staff for a report re: height restrictions in the Marine zone.

Unfinished Business

• Council appointed Robin Joost and Susan Sanford as citizens-at-large to the Comprehensive Community Plan Advisory Team.

• There was an update on the Lunenburg Academy exterior renovation; extensive disrepair including wasp damage have been found, and it is estimated that an additional $150,000 will be required to complete Phase 1. Council agreed to allocate that amount from the remaining $170,000 of Provincial grant money to complete the work. Staff have also applied for an additional grant to offset costs. 

2018/19 Town Budget

• The 2018/19 Town General, Electric and Water Utilities Operating & Capital Budgets were approved.

The Town will continue to own its Electric Utility and infrastructure, and customers will have continuity in service.  All on site work will be carried out by Nova Scotia Power personnel with no change in the cost of electricity as a result of this arrangement.

Customers will receive their regular electricity bills as they always have.
