UPDATE - CRESTON BOULEVARD / GREENWOOD STREET AREA WATER SHUT-OFF


As most residents know, the water in your area was restored around 3:00 a.m. this morning, which was later than anticipated.

We would like to thank the crew of Mallay's Industrial Services Ltd. who worked for 21 hours yesterday to ensure all necessary repairs were done in one day so that the water did not have to be shut off for a second day. The workers replaced three valves and upgraded the water and sewer lines in the area to mitigate future issues, especially during winter months. They also replaced a large sewer manhole that was 6 meters deep, which was connected to four roads and necessitated the water being shut off so early in order to work with the tide.

We realize the long water shut-off was an inconvenience but we are now happy to report to all residents who were affected that a large portion of the water and sewer system was upgraded and work is pending on the remainder.

As work continues, it's possible that the water may need to be shut off in certain sections for short periods of time. Should that happen, you will be advised. It's likely that you will notice discolouration in your water. If you have an outside tap, please run it until the water clears. If not, you should run the cold water tap inside your house.

Thank you to our Firefighters!




The Town of Marystown would like to say a HUGE thank you to our volunteer firefighters at the Marystown Volunteer Fire Department for everything they do to keep our residents and our town protected.

In 2016, our thirty volunteers recorded a total of 8,954 volunteer hours - that's an average of 6 hours per firefighter per week for 52 weeks! Those hours were spent attending drill meetings, training, being on call (weekend duty), responding to call-outs and participating in community programs/events such as the breakfast program.

We are extremely proud and thankful to have such an exceptional team of firefighters who are so giving of their time. They respond to calls at all hours of the day or night, they give up their weekends and holidays and they sometimes miss out on family events.

We invite all residents to join us as we say a heartfelt "Thank You" to our firefighters and of course, their families!

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.

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.
