FPEIM Awards - Municipal Achievement Award

The Federation of Prince Edward Island Municipalities initiated the Municipal Achievement Awardsto recognize a municipality that has demonstrated a commitment to improving the quality of life of its residents.

 

The Community of Hunter River was presented with 2017 Municipal Achievement Award.

Councillor Bruce MacDougall, FPEIM President, presents Sarah Weeks, CAO, Hunter River, with the Municipal Acheivement Award for 2017 at the 2017 FPEIM annual meeting at the Rodd Charlottetown Hotel on April 24,2017.

 

The nomination for this year’s winner notes the hard work and dedication of numerous councillors and committee volunteers who have made great things happen for their area.  Tireless efforts have been given by a small but mighty group of community minded people to ensure that projects, big and small, have been carried out for the benefit of all in the area.

Several years ago, councillors and committee members worked together to raise funds to create a local green space that could be enjoyed by residents and visitors alike and could serve as a meeting place for the community.  The Heritage Park continues to be home to many community events. 

Many of these same committed individuals took up another challenge: the renovation and expansion of the Community Centre which needed an overhaul.  Careful planning, obtaining funding, and attention to detail resulted in a beautiful new space being created with the character of the original building.  As the renovations were completed, volunteers again rolled up their sleeves, picked up paint brushes, mops and brooms and didn’t hesitate to cart boxes of books into the new library space.  The space has been home to weekly card parties, fitness classes, Girl Guide meetings and regular library hours.

Most recently, Council and the Sewer Utility have overseen the replacement of an old system that had served the community.  The $1.3 million dollar project took 2 years of planning and many hours of work to put the funding in place and to minimize any impact to the existing users of the utility.  In January 2017, the new sewer utility plant became operation and will allow for future growth.

None of these projects would have been completed without the hard work and dedication of the current Council: Chair Terry McGrath, Vice Chair Jason Macdonald, councillors Barb Stewart, Linda Shelvey and Kent Smith.  The nomination also recognized former Chair Paul Ellis, former Councillors Lori Ellis, Blair Weeks and the late Dr. David Richardson.
