The village of Masset has re-appointed Shaun Mushynsky and Trevor Jarvis as two of its four representatives on the Greater Massett Development Corporation.
The two representatives’ terms were expiring as soon as the GMDC holds its annual general meeting, expected in the next couple of weeks.
Masset council members voted quickly and unanimously to reappoint Mr. Mushynsky and Mr. Jarvis at their meeting July 19. Masset’s other two representatives on the board are Ed Woode and Janet Brown. The GMDC is jointly controlled by Masset and Old Massett, and makes all decisions about the former military facilities, including the recreation centre, and the investment funds which provide the money to run the facilities.

The site where he will be working is located directly east of Masset and west of stump dump road, and does not include any residential areas. The salvaging should provide work for about seven people for a couple of months.
