Theft of Street Signs Can Endanger Lives!

At first glance, the theft of a street sign for a dorm room or switching them around as a prank might not seem like a big deal. But there can be major consequences.  Not only can a missing street sign be confusing for drivers and pedestrians, it can cause an accident or even worse – it can cost someone their life.

Our emergency responders rely on street signage in order to respond to a call as quickly as possible. When signs go missing, it can make it difficult for the fire department or ambulance service to find a street, especially at night. Those critical seconds or even minutes could worsen an already serious situation.

So before you decide to steal or swap out a street sign, please think of the life you may be endangering.

Residents are asked to please call the Town Office if you notice a missing street sign so we can replace it.

Rodent Poison

Residents are advised to use caution when placing rodent poison around their properties due to the recent deaths of two family pets.

Residents are advised to use a container similar to those pictured. You can choose to make a homemade container with wood or a plastic bucket or purchase a container with an opening just big enough for a rodent to access the poison.

Please ensure the safety of children and pets when using rodent poison!

Just complete the Communications Consent Form and send it back to us. Your information will only be used to communicate information to you and will not be used to contact you for any other purpose (ie., tax collection) and will not be shared.  You can unsubscribe at any time if you are not satisfied.

Sale of Animals / Permits

As per the Town’s Regulations, a mobile business permit is required by any person wishing to advertise the sale of animals on a regular basis as this constitutes a business.  If you see an ad selling any animal and you are interested in purchasing that animal, please contact the Burin Peninsula SPCA at 891-8000 to speak with a representative as to whether that seller is considered an acceptable seller.

As per section 64 of the Animal Pedigree Act of Canada, it is a federal offense to sell an animal of a recognized breed as purebred, registered or eligible to be registered if it is not. If you have questions or concerns regarding a seller of a purebred animal, again, contact the Burin Peninsula SPCA for assistance.

Posting Your Civic Address Is Important!

If you had an emergency, would an ambulance be able to find your residence? Would the Fire Department or the RCMP? How about at night? Or from a distance?

Every second counts during a fire, police or medical emergency and valuable time can be lost if your civic address is not clearly posted where emergency responders can see it. Emergency responders cannot provide lifesaving services to you and your family if they cannot find your house.

Your civic address is assigned by the Municipal Assessment Agency. If you are unsure what your civic address is, or if you are using a number that was assigned to you by Newfoundland Power, please contact the Town Office to confirm your address and post it for emergency responders – the closer to the end of your driveway, the better.

Because they can’t help you if they can’t find you…

May the family and friends of Cortney stay strong during this difficult time and may God protect Cortney and return her safely to her family.

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.

This includes not only the buildings, but the grounds as well, especially the recreational facilities (swimming pool, arena, track & field complex, Kinsmen Field, Centennial Field and playgrounds). The Town's recreational facilities lend a popular outdoor setting for exercise and recreational activities and often attract large numbers of people, particularly families with children.

Please support our vision of providing a healthy environment and refrain from smoking at the Town's facilities, and on the grounds, at all times.

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.
