Water Shut-off, Ville Marie Drive

Residents are advised that the water has been shut off from the intersection of Argyle Street with Ville Marie Drive to the Town Office at 150-168 Ville Marie Drive (across from MacDonalds). This shut-off is to facilitate repairs to a water line break and will last for an indefinite period.

Chase the Ace

Think recreation for kids is important? Lions do! That's why they have partnered with the Marystown Recreation Commission for their Thursday Chase The Ace. Why not pool with family, neighbors and friends. Perhaps a group at work would like to play. Tickets sold between 7:30 and 8:30 with the draw at 8:45. Tickets continue to be 3 for $5 or 7 for $10. Holding the lucky ticket and cutting the ace of spades could net you over $3,000.00 this week. Last week’s winner won the draw at Chase the Ace but unfortunately, she did not cut the Ace of Spades. Try your luck this Thursday Night and see if you can claim the prize. Please support Marystown Lions and Sports in the Marystown area.

Warning About Hogweed

Residents are advised that the invasive species known as Hogweed has been identified in the area of the old Ville Marie Swimming Pool. While the plant has been sprayed and is dying, residents are advised to be cautious in the area and avoid contact with the plant. When combined with ultraviolet rays or sunlight, the clear sap can cause severe burns to the skin within 48 hours and cause long-lasting scars on the skin or even blindness if it comes into contact with the eyes.

Hogweed can be identified as follows:

Size: can reach a height of 4-5 metres - stems have a diameter of 5-10 cm (2-4 inches)
Stems: hairy and purple in colour, with purple spots
Leaves: dark green, with three deep lobes
Flowers: small white flowers in an umbrella-shape that can measure up to 80 cm (31.5 inches) across

Should you come into contact with the plant, wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and water, avoid sunlight for 48 hours and seek medical advice.

If you see Hogweed on municipal property, please contact our office at 279-1661 and report it.

Anyone finding hogweed on their private property is urged to hire professionals to remove it to prevent further spreading.

Hazardous Materials in Garbage Collection

Residents are reminded that hazardous materials, such as waste oil/motor oil and other such materials that cause many environmental issues, are not permitted in the regular residential garbage collection and must be disposed of by other means. Disposing of such items in your regular garbage poses a safety issue for the sanitation workers (could spray when compacted) and could cause major interruptions/delays to the collection service in your area.

Please check with some of the local service stations to determine which ones will recycle your used oil.

Thank you for your co-operation and protection of our environment.

Non-Permitted Businesses

All businesses operating within the Town of Marystown’s planning area (including Beau Bois, Spanish Room, Jean de Baie and Rock Harbour) are required to have a permit to operate.  Please refer to the Town’s website at www.townofmarystown.ca for a copy of the Town’s Development Regulations and Municipal Plan as well as the Town’s Tax Structure as it relates to permit fees.

By making application to the Town to operate a business, it ensures that the business is in compliance with zoning bylaws for a specific location and ensures that other regulations (public health and safety, etc.) are addressed.  It also ensures a fair environment for all members of the business community.

Failure to obtain the proper permits will result in the issuance of a Stop Work Order.  Anyone wishing to advise the Town of a business that is operating without a proper permit may do so anonymously by calling Alje Mitchell, Director of Planning & Development Control at 279-1661 ext. 258 or emailing amitchell@townofmarystown.ca.

Marine Industrial Park

The Town of Marystown has developed a new Marine Industrial Park in the Power’s Cove area, boasting 15 large fully-serviced lots (lots can be subdivided to meet individual needs) with plans for a laydown area and 1,000 foot wharf.  Because of its ideal location – a well-sheltered, ice-free, deepwater harbour - this Marine Industrial Park is well-suited to take advantage of the opportunities in the supply and service sector, specifically oil/gas, fabrication and manufacturing.

A Marketing Plan is now being developed to hilight the attributes and benefits of the park.  This information will be posted via a web link once it is available.

For more information on the Marine Industrial Park or to view a lot, please contact the CAO at 709-279-1661, ext. 227 or email info@townofmarystown.ca.
