Main gas line to shut down

Castor town council

The TransCanada main transmission gas line that the Town of Castor taps into will shut down for up to five days starting June 15 reported CAO Sandi Jackson to council during their regular meeting on Tues., May 24.
The shut down is to determine the integrity of the line as it is currently 40 years old.

The line is scheduled to be shut down from June 15 until the 18 with the possibility of June 19 and 20 closures depending upon the findings.

In the event that the inspection determines further work is needed, additional information and closure dates will be announced at that time.

Resident complaint
A Castor resident who lives on 49th Ave. has complained about a neighbouring resident using equipment, such as his bobcat, late into the night, sometimes as late as 1 a.m.
The unnamed complainant also has issue with vehicles and trailers being left “in the alley” which is on town property.

Council did not seem bothered with the vehicles as  they said they are not visible from the street and did not interfere with town staff however a letter will be sent regarding the noise level.

New Rec Director
Natasha Bozek has recently been hired to replace outgoing Loreena MacGillivray as the Town of Castor’s Recreation Director.

Council members gushed about Bozek, claiming her interview “blew [them] away” and that this new director is a terrific addition to the team.

Bozek started her full time position on Fri., May 27 and will be available in office from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each week day.

Castor’s satellite RCMP office avoids closure

Melanie Robertson, the Detachment Clerk for the satellite RCMP office located in Castor has recently resigned.

Luckily, Billie Jo Rossing who has already passed the required screening, has agreed to act as a temporary replacement and will fill in the two days a week until a permanent replacement can be found.

Without this temporary replacement the office would have been closed until such time as a new person was hired and passed the six month long screening process.
