ANCHOR POINT, N.L.

Q. What did you accomplish in 2018?

A. What we’re most proud of in Anchor Point is completing the pavement in town. And what we’re most proud of other than that is the purchase of a stand-by generator for the pumphouse.

As far as the Northern Peninsula Regional Service Board is concerned, the election of a very active board.

(We’re proud) to have a very active and very vocal joint council.

Q. What are you looking forward to in 2019?

A. What we’re looking forward to in 2019 is the installation of the generator and hooking it up. I’m sure at our next council meeting we’ll be discussing what major projects, if any, we want to pursue in 2019 outside of the generator. I’m sure we’ll be looking at some other issues and see where we go from there.

(The Northern Peninsula Regional Service Board) is looking forward to improvement to the fire services in 2019.

(As Great Northern Peninsula Joint Council chair) I guess basically it’s all talk right now but looking at economic development for the Northern Peninsula. Hopefully, in the new year we’ll be doing a capacity building workshop. We’ll be hosting it for the joint council in co-operation with the Department of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. But we don’t have much detail on that right now. But it will be a capacity building workshop looking at economic possibilities for the region.
