August. 20 - The Garnish Volunteer Fire
Department will be conducting training exercises this evening.
Prepare for some discoloured water all over town. We
regret any inconvenience.
Council regrets to inform the
30 applicants that the request for funding for the inline
pumps was unsuccessful. Whereas we do not have the
funding to cover this expense, the program has been deferred
until the next budget year. If you have already
purchased, keep your receipt and you will be reimbursed once
we have found the necessary funding.
The deadline to have raw
sewage waste running into the Barrisway from Barrisway Road
is fast approaching. Council intends soon to place
armour stone at one section of the cement wall that is
falling into the barrisway. Other sections will be
repaired the same way as funding becomes available.
This will happen starting Sept. 1 If your sewer pipe
is somewhere along that wall, you are reminded that it needs
to be gone ASAP or else you may have a serious problem.
Fisherpersons are asked to
remove the bait boxes from where they now close to the
Harbour. They are on Council property and the Harbour
Authority has requested that they be moved. After Oct.
1, Council will move them at owner's expense.
From Earlier Council Meetings
Rat Problem. -
These rodents have been seen and caught in several parts of
Garnish. Council has hired a pest control officer to
remove them. There are several things we all can do to
decrease the possibility of these rodents in your
1. Place all garbage,
particularly kitchen waste, in your Waste Management Green Tub.
2. Pick up ALL of your dog doo where
ever it gets dropped. This includes the dog part.
That facility is not
intended for your dog to leave deposits.
(We know who you are). Do show some consideration for
your dog-owner friends by keeping that ground
free of your dog poo, which attracts rats.
3. Do not leave any pet food
Sewage in Barrisway -
Council, Town of Garnish is asking all households that have
untreated waste running in the Barrachois to stop doing so
by August 30, 2019. You may either hook your sewage
line into the Town Sewage system or install a septic tank
and disposal field. Pipes running into the Barrachois
will be plugged anytime after Sept. 1, 2019.
