Annapolis Valley Regional Library looking for new headquarters, council told

Published on February 19, 2015

ANNAPOLIS ROYAL - The Annapolis Valley Regional Library, now headquartered on Bay Road in Bridgetown, is seeking proposals for a new headquarters facility, Annapolis County Deputy Warden Timothy Habinski reported at the February session of the Annapolis County committee of the whole.

Specifications for that call are now being developed Habinski said.

This was just one of several agenda items discussed at the February session. Other items included recreation, animal control and internet services.

 

Active Transportation

Any action on the municipal action transportation plan was tabled to the March committee of the whole council. Several councillors expressed concern about this initiative.

 

Animal Control

Possible changes to the way in which the municipality delivers animal control services will be discussed at a special council workshop to be held later this month. The changes are partly a result of new provincial legislation and regulations on animal control.

 

Bayshore Internet Services

Councillors were told that internet services to communities along the western Bay of Fundy have been disrupted for several weeks due to equipment failure. Councillors agreed to write to Eastlink, the service provider, to complain about the long delays in making the necessary repairs.

 

Tourism Support

A request from the Annapolis Board of Trade for additional financial support to the operations of the visitor information centre at the Annapolis Tidal Power Station was tabled to the council’s budget deliberations later this year.

 

Private Roads

Councillors asked staff to look at options that could allow subdivision developments to use private roads instead of requiring that roads be public and built to provincial highway standards.
