A number of agreements were signed at Harrison Hot Springs’ final council
meeting of the year Monday night.
The Village has signed an agreement to keep Devlin Onucki on as bylaw enforcement officer, with an agreement that will run from Jan. 1, 2014 to Dec. 31, 2016. Payment for services is $32,800 a year, with the contractor responsible for all bylaw enforcement issues, including loitering, public nuisances, animal control and unsightly premises.
The Village is also continuing its agreement with Murray’s Janitorial Service. Their agreement will expire at the end of this year, however a new agreement was approved by council that will keep Murray’s on until Dec. 31, 2016.
Murray’s is responsible for numerous tasks, from cleaning all showers, toilets, urinals and sinks on Village property on a daily basis, to stripping and treating hardwood floors.
The total cost for the contract is $16,127 per year, plus taxes, paid monthly.
Coun. Sonja Reyerse commented that the cost equals good savings for the Village.
“It’s amazing they can do all that for that little money,” she said.
At the same meeting, they also appointed new officers for next year’s municipal election. Joan Gordon will be Chief Election Officer and Barb Ten Bos will act as Deputy Chief Election Officer, at a remuneration rate of $4,200 and $1,500 respectively.
Harrison council will next meet on Jan. 20. At a recent meeting, they voted to cancel their Jan. 6 meeting. They felt there would be a lack of time prepare, and little to discuss, following the Christmas holidays Village office closure.
