Chandra Hovde presented council with an Automatic External Defibrillator.

Hovde was one of 300 people who applied for the 200 surplus AEDs left over from the 2010 Winter Olympics. The unit is still in its original wrappings and comes with a pack and training video. It will be housed in the Port Alice arena.

A base unit Lifepak CR plus without the carrying case and training DVD retails for $1,795 plus taxes.

Kitchen help sought

The Quatsino Chalet wants to spread its net in a search for help in the kitchen. Manager Erica Shum made a presentation to council asking them to consider writing a letter of support for her application to hire a foreign worker.

Shum said that they have been unsuccessful attracting qualified help from Canadian sources due applicants’ perceptions of the remoteness of the location. Shum said her family has been covering the kitchen work, but they are feeling the strain and are anxious to find a chef so that they can have some family time.

Snow removal

Director of Operations Keir Gervais reported that his work to confirm a viable snow removal Bobcat operator and machine licensed to operate within the Village was continuing, said Gervais in his Public Works Committee report.

Gervais is also working on a policy for the Village that will cover fee-for-service snow removal by Village staff on private property. This would be to ensure safe access for first responders or where removal of snow will directly enable a business to operate or prevent that business from operating if snow is not removed.

Silt troubles

Councillor Bruce Lloyd informed the Advisory Planning Committee that the Village is currently working on a plan to divert the silt and gravel that is flowing down the dyke system from flowing over the boat launch and under the Village’s floats. The silt is causing damage to the floats when they settle on uneven ground at low tide.
