Port Edward council briefs

Briefs for the Port Edward council meeting of Nov. 24

No security passwords for gym

Port Edward council won’t be giving out the security pass code to evening recreational user groups at the school gym. The school is currently being used by Pacific NorthWest LNG for office space.

“The whole building is on one security system,” said Port Edward chief administrative officer, Bob Payette. “We’re trying to get something figured out by Christmas.”

Civeo work camp impresses

District Coun. Christine Mackenzie took a tour of a Kitimat Civeo work camp under construction last week, and was thoroughly impressed with camp security.

“There is a gate before you even get in and then when you get in you’ve got to report again – you’ve got to sign in twice … If you’ve had some drinks [and are visibly intoxicated], then you’re out. You’re not allowed in – your room’s gone,” she said, adding that the camp was an alcohol-free zone.

Help for Port Edward church

The District of Port Edward council responded to an early November request from Port Ed’s Church of Christ the King for fundraising items to help revitalize the church through renovation. The District concluded that they would send two gifts for the Loonie Auction that the church is holding.

Council to match pledges

Council decided to match monetary donations of Port Edward Community School’s Walk-athon. The proceeds of the pledges will go toward the Salvation Army. Council will match pledges up to $500.
