Indiscriminate Dumping

We wish to advise our residents that indiscriminate dumping is strictly prohibited within our Municipal Boundaries. Unfortunately the No Dumping signs have not been a deterrent.   The Town provides weekly household garbage collection and a yearly clean up week.  Persons who indiscriminately dump put a burden on all taxpayers as Town resources must be used to address this problem.  We are asking if anyone has information related to indiscriminate dumping to contact the Town Office.  Let's work together to end indiscriminate dumping.  We wish to advise those who are dumping within the town boundaries that dumping is strictly prohibited and is a chargeable offence.  All dumping is reported to the RCMP.

Emera News Release

istory Made with First Successful Energy Exchange across Emera’s Maritime Link December 08, 2017 01:34 PM Eastern Standard Time HALIFAX, Nova Scotia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For the first time, electricity has been exchanged between the Island of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia through Emera’s Maritime Link Project. This is a historic milestone for the transformative interconnection and brings the Link within weeks of entering commercial operation when it will significantly improve the way energy is transmitted in Atlantic Canada. “This is a great day for Nova Scotia” Tweet this The first electrons across the Maritime Link system were exchanged between the provinces at 11:03 a.m. AST on Dec 8, 2017. Commissioning Teams from Emera NL and ABB worked together with Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro and Nova Scotia Power to achieve the first successful trial of the Maritime Link. “Our team has been working closely with the system operators in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as contractors ABB and Nexans for several years to integrate this new interconnection,” said Rick Janega, CEO of Emera Newfoundland & Labrador. “This is a historic accomplishment and the culmination of almost seven years of work from a dedicated team of employees, workers and contractors that have spent countless hours bringing the project to life.” Commissioning will continue throughout December as the Maritime Link prepares to be ready for customers in early 2018. This integration of the link would not be possible without the collaboration of system operators in all Atlantic Canadian provinces. Once in service, it improves the electrical interconnections between Atlantic Canadian provinces, providing more access and improved reliability and connecting the Island of Newfoundland to the North American energy grid for the first time. “The exchange of energy across the Maritime Link marks the beginning of a pivotal time in our provincial electricity system and brings us a step closer to a more reliable, interconnected system for our customers who are counting on us every day,” said Jim Haynes, President of Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro. The Maritime Link Project is part of a broader strategy to address the growing demand for more renewable energy. It will enable the transmission of clean, renewable and reliable electricity from Newfoundland and Labrador to Nova Scotia. “This is a great day for Nova Scotia,” said Karen Hutt, President and CEO of Nova Scotia Power. “When it goes into operation in January, the Maritime Link will benefit Nova Scotia Power customers by creating a more stable and secure system, helping reduce carbon emissions, and enabling NSP to purchase power from new sources. With the Maritime Link available, it will deliver clean hydroelectricity that will help us achieve 40% renewable generation for our customers by 2020.” Based on the regional cooperation among the provinces and the regional significance of the Maritime Link, the Government of Canada backed the Project with a Federal Loan Guarantee. This will save Nova Scotia electricity customers approximately $325 million over the life of the Project. The Project was sanctioned in 2013 after a rigorous regulatory review and environmental assessment. A comprehensive industrial benefits plan was required and labour agreements were negotiated with the IBEW in both provinces and the Cape Breton Building Trades Council. Throughout the project, Emera has performed on its commitment to engage the Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq and Qalipu Mi’kmaq in Newfoundland. As part of this commitment, socio-economic agreements were signed with both groups in 2015. Construction of the Maritime Link began in 2014 and achieved major milestones this year with the successful installation of two submarine cables and overland transmission infrastructure. The Project remains on budget and on schedule for first operation in early 2018. Forward Looking Information This news release contains forward-looking information within the meaning of applicable securities laws. By its nature, forward-looking information requires Emera to make assumptions and is subject to inherent risks and uncertainties. About The Maritime Link Project The Maritime Link is a 500 MW high voltage direct current (HVdc) transmission interconnection.

School Bus Meeting - 20 September, 2017

  This is a reminder that a meeting will be held at the Siki Bennett Memorial Stadium tonight at 7:00 pm with respect to the School Bus issue, we encourage all parents and anyone interested in this issue to attend.  In preparation of this meeting the Town has met with the RCMP regarding the excessive speed at which vehicles travel through this town, especially in the school zone.  Despite having an expensive speed radar sign to mitigate speeding, vehicles continue to pass through the school zone at high rates of speed.  The RCMP suggested that we periodically monitor this and to be proactive in discouraging speeding through this zone.  To this end we have received numerous complaints about speeding and the Town is doing it’s best to address this problem.  We take a serious approach to the safety of our children and hope that parents/residents & visitors will support our efforts.  

Updated: Wednesday, September 20, 2017   11:46 am NFLD

Siki Bennett Memorial Stadium Lighting Retrofit

The St. George's Parks and Recreation Commission Inc. and the Town of St. George's acknowledges with grateful appreciation the Department of Seniors, Wellness and Social Development for their contribution through the Community Healthy Living Fund for the Siki Bennett Memorial Stadium Lighting Retrofit.  The 14 metal halide lights that once hung over the ice surface have now been replaced with dimmable Albeo LED Luminaire High Bay Lighting.  This lighting is bright and has mitigated the dark spots that once existed, it's energy efficient producing 24,000 lumens which produces exceptional lighting.  Without the support of the Department of Seniors, Wellness and Social Deveopment this initiative would not have been possible.  We also wish to extend thanks to MHA Scott Reid for the guidance he provided as well as supporting our request.  

Burning Prohibited

We wish to remind our residents of the list of materials prohibited from Burning in a Fire.  Permits for burning must be obtained from the local Forestry Office, this is in effect from May 1 - September 30, 2017.  Attached in the documents is the Consolidated Newfoundland and Labrador Regulation 11/96 (Forest Fire Regulations under the Forestry Act).    

Updated: Tuesday, May 16, 2017   11:46 am NFLD



School Zone Speed

 
REDUCE YOUR SPEED
We wish to notify our residents that the statistics we've received from the speed radar sign indicates that a mere 35% of vehicles travelling through the school zone are abiding by the speed limit.  The average speed from the available data through the school zone is between 46km and 60km per hour with a high of 96km recorded on March 27th, 2017 at 3:10 pm, this is completely unacceptable in a regulated 30km zone. We must reiterate that the 30km zone is for the safety of our children. A letter is being sent to the local RCMP detachment with the current statistics requesting a concentrated effort of patrols throughout the school day in an effort to mitigate the excessive speed in which vehicles are travelling through our town. It has also been noticed that many of the vehicles not abiding by the posted speed limit are on the way to the two schools in this zone.  We implore our residents and visitors to our community to abide by all posted regulated speed signage.  Please reduce your speed.  The school zone speed sign records all data from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm Monday thru Friday.
