Recruiting comittee to remain active. As a result of the calling of the ;ublic meeting the clinic did benefit from an on call doctor from Digby taking patients for one day a week for three weeks. A good start, hopefully this practice can be revisited.
- Discussion on status of burned out property adjacent Sissiboo Place as being unsightly. Ownership is up in the air as the property has been placed for tax sale with apparently no bidders. Current status to be determined before any further action,
- Request from fire dept. for a steet light at the water filling station on the New Road was deferred pending review if the location is within the village limits.
