Millet town councilors heard a detailed report from their Department of Public works, including a delayed elevator and returned highway signs, during their regular meeting Apr. 12.

Councilors Eleanor Pydde and Vicki Pyle were absent from the meeting. Public Works Coordinator Eric Weremey and Don Gilmet Director of Public Services submitted their regular report for council’s perusal.

“After several months of work the Agriplex is now ready to receive the actual elevator from CamWest for installment,” stated the public works report.

“The contractors for the Agriplex part of the installment did an excellent job and maintained their part of the contract and install date of Feb. 17. Unfortunately, CanWest has changed their date to Apr. 17 for delivery of the unit.

“Once they have finished the install, the doorway frames up and downstairs will be finished by our contractor.”

At this point, CAO Teri Pelletier told councilors the delivery of the new elevator has actually been delayed until sometime in May.

Parks

“Both walking bridges are now in place,” noted the PW report. “We will be doing final inspection Mar. 24 of the two new bridges and looking over the condition of the remaining two bridges.”

Library

The Public Works department will be helping the Millet Library with quotes for installing handicapped doors.

Administration

“Signage for Highway #616 was received,” stated the report. “Unfortunately they were sent back as the welder did not allow for the image on the signs to clear the frames.”

The report also noted the Public Works department is getting quotes for grants such as Co-op Community Spaces, FCSS Agrispirit Funding, Canada 150 and Fortis Grant.

The department is also working with Select Engineering on drainage camering, easements, road problems and water lines.

The report also noted Public Works has responded to resident complaints involving streets, vandalism, water flooding, garbage pick-ups, back alleys, signage, roads in town, lagoons, the cemetery, landscaping and dogs running off leash.

Lastly, it was noted that a new sound equalizer has been installed in the Agriplex which will be built into the equipment room and available only for renters.

Councilors accepted the report for information.
