Niverville Town Council held their annual planning session this past weekend and met for a total of 22 hours over two days.

Niverville Mayor Myron Dyck says the meetings were held at Providence University College on Friday and Saturday. He says they were able to meet with all of the town’s various departments, talk about economic development, and plan future projects. He says one of the largest projects to come out of the planning session will get underway in 2020.

"We are going to be re-doing the sewer and the roads in the core area of town, the older area where there are the older sewer lines have essentially met the end of their life. We are going to do this over 13 years, just from a monetary standpoint so we don't have to do a borrowing by-law, we are not going to have to do a LID or anything like that, this is going to be from existing taxation."

Each section of road is set to take just over a year to complete. Dyck notes the road will be dug up and the sewer lines replaced. He says the road will then be paved the following year after the ground has settled.

Dyck says council was also able to plan a number of other projects for 2019 including some upgrades in Hespeler Park.

"One thing is the playground structure, it is going to be across the way from the splash pad, and due to cost we are going to do it over two years, we will do half in 2019 and then complete it in 2020. The other thing for Hespeler Park, we are going to be expanding the south-end parking lot. We are seeing that the ball diamonds are being well utilized and so we are going to expand the parking lot to the west."

Dyck says other projects for 2019 include paving the first half of 6th Avenue South from Errington Way to Main Street, purchasing a new rescue one truck for the fire department, moving into the new town office in April, and setting aside funds for a future pedestrian crossing over the CP rail line.

Dyck notes the meetings were exceptionally productive and thanks the town staff for all of their hard work to make sure everything was well prepared. He adds staff was even able to present them with a preliminary budget for 2019 which is much earlier than normal.
