PUBLIC MEETING MONDAY, 22 JULY 2013: AN
OVERVIEW



 



By J.
Brock (FINN)



 



A public meeting took place in the
Court and Assembly Chamber of the Town Hall at 1700hrs on Monday, 22 July
2013.  Present were Councillors Hansen,
Cheek, Sawle and Edwards.  The Chair, Barry
Elsby, was not present due to work commitments and Mrs Halford also sent her
apologies.  Councillor Summers is away.



 



The meeting started off with a
question by John Birmingham about the return on FIG investments; and continued
with a discussion about why the project to put FIG online seemed to be bogged
down.



 



After John Birmingham’s late
arrival a discussion and statement about the Royal birth took place with the
information that FIG are sending an organically grown sheepskin and locally
produced shawl to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.



 



Ging Davis brought up South American
fracking and expressed the view that it affected the price of oil world-wide.  John Birmingham brought up the removal of
waste oil, given the recent incident at the Mary Hill quarry near the
airport.  John Birmingham asked if FIG
would accept waste products from areas in Camp that had them.



 



Brian Summers asked about cost
over-runs for the public jetty project. 
There was a discussion about re-using the wooden decking from the Public
Jetty and the questionable use of steel piles in the salt water of Stanley
Harbour.. It seemed odd to have concrete decking in places and steel pile.  MLAs said that they weren’t civil engineers
and couldn’t put the rumours to rest at this meeting.
