Masset re-appoints GMDC reps

  • Jul. 21, 2006 3:00 p.m.

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.
In other Masset news:
o The village is about to put up a new sign, carved by Casey Jarvis, outside the visitor information centre. The sign proclaims the site as “Mile 0” on the Yellowhead Highway.
o Council voted to donate $200 to the Haida Gwaii Rediscovery Society to help send a young person to the camp.
o Council approved an application from Danny Stewart of Skocum Shakers to do some log salvaging of blown down cedar within the village boundaries, but will be requiring him to advise neighbours about his activities. 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.
o Council is taking a bit of a summer break, with the next meeting scheduled for Aug. 21.
