Public Works considering four-way stop on Barriere Town Road and Barkley

Incentive to attract new businesses and people to Barriere also discussed

There was a nice turn out of citizens to the May 15, District of Barriere’s Public Works committee meeting.

Mr. Underwood of Eco-Tek gave an update of the progress of the Watewater Project – the design charrette was well attended, and they should have a preliminary design ready in about three weeks.

He also spoke regarding the Septage Receiving Project.  They hope to have the Septage Receiving facility up by April of 2013, and the Wastewater Treatment facility  sometime in 2014.

Staff reported on the status of the line painting, stating that most quotes have now been received and a decision will be made soon.

One of the items being considered, is putting in four way stops at the corner of Barriere Town Road and Barkley Road.

Brent Hamblin, Vagn Jensen and Fritz Prudat all expressed a concern about the many places for sale in Barriere, and an interest in seeing some form of incentive to attract new businesses and people to Barriere.

Committee members replied that they are considering several options for incentives, particularly around new businesses.

The next Public Works committee meeting will be on Tuesday, June 12 at 7 p.m.
