May 4, 2016 - Anyone who is over 55 and is interested in
staying in Garnish after they downsize from their present family
home, are encouraged to return the Senior Retirement Accommodation
Form to Council Office ASAP. This is a process to collect
information to determine is if there is a need for such
accommodation in Garnish. The information collected will be
presented to investors who will, hopefully, be convinced that there
is a market, and be persuaded to come here and develop residential
units. Council's involvement will be no more than to expedite the
development process, perhaps going as far as to donate land already
owned by the Town to the investor. The Town owns land on Sunset
Drive near the Lions Center and on Pardy's Point Road. This process
has absolutely nothing to do with any member presently sitting on
Council. This might be our last best chance to create opportunities
for Garnishers to stay in town well after we are too old to shovel
snow or mow grass. If this might be you, now, or ten years from
now, please consider returning the form to Ruth without delay.

Advisory - Mayor and Council are very concerned at the news below.
If Garnish is to have a public library closer than Marystown after
next year, Council will have to find the funds to keep open the one
now in our Council Building. This will mean taking funds away from
some other project or service that needs it, or a raise in taxes.
We encourage residents to state their opposition to the
closure by contacting the Provincial Government as stated below.
I am amazed at how Mr.
Kirby is trying to convince us that closing our library in Garnish and
having us go to Marystown to avail of the library there is a positive
story. Meanwhile, him and his government will add close to twenty cents
on a liter of gasoline which will negatively impact the amount of
driving that we will do. It would be much better if they had taken the
pot of money that was left for public libraries and reduced the hours
that they were open. At least we still would have the service in OUR
community. I am not buying what Mr. Kirby is trying to sell us regarding
library services. I am calling on our MHA to come and meet with the
people of this community so that she can take our concerns back to Dale
Kirby, Dwight Ball, and Cathy Bennett. To do nothing will indicate your
commitment to the people of this community
Everyone who enjoys reading
should follow Carlson's lead. We can contact our MHA at
firstname.lastname@example.org and the Minister of Education at

April 26 - Wanted - Council, Town of

Committee. If you have the time and the interest, please
