Press release: Exeter flood defence scheme

first_img We’d like to thank commuters and others for their patience while we carry out these essential works. We regret that there will be inconvenience and we urge motorists to plan ahead and allow extra journey time. If people have questions regarding the diversion routes or works they can call the Exeter scheme information line on 07769 162338. This is an essential element of the flood defence scheme and these flood gates will reduce flood risk to hundreds of homes and businesses in the city. Every effort will be made to minimise disruption during the closure of Station Road, but the long term benefits will outweigh the short term inconvenience. The Environment Agency and Network Rail have co-ordinated their work such that Network Rail will carry out essential maintenance work on their level crossing during this time to avoid the need for a separate closure at a future date.The Environment Agency will be holding a drop-by briefing on Station Road on 12 March 2018 from 4pm to 7pm to explain the works and diversion routes. The briefing is in the public car park on the Exwick side of the bridge. You can also see the latest information on GOV.UK.Throughout the works detailed traffic and pedestrian diversion signage will be erected to direct people around the closures.Richard Cox, the scheme’s project manager said:center_img The construction of the Exeter flood defence scheme is now well advanced with completion of the whole scheme expected at the end of 2018. The scheme is a partnership between the Environment Agency, Devon County Council and Exeter City Council. The flood defences will reduce the risk of flooding to more than 3,200 homes and businesses in Exeter.As part of the new defences being built in the north of the city it will be necessary to close Station Road from 9 April 2018 for 9 weeks. Station Road is located near St David’s Station and links Exwick Road to Cowley Bridge Road across the River Exe.Two flood gates will be built across Station Road on either side of the river and the flood relief channel. When not in use the gates will sit behind the footpaths; when a flood is expected the gates will be closed thereby completing the flood defences and protecting the properties on each side of the river.It is necessary to close Station Road to vehicles during the construction work due to the size of the foundations required to support the gates. Pedestrians and cyclists will be able use the footpaths across the bridges except for the 4 weekends in May when complete closures will be in place.Cllr Roger Croad, Devon County Council’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for Environmental Services said:last_img read more

Mural Brings New Life to Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Chisholm Street

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisAlpena — Artist Chad Joseph Szatkowski watched his 12′ by 12′ foot mural receive high praise from community members on Monday afternoon at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. The organization put out a contest for artist to design a mural in order to beautify the ReStore. Szatkowski’s designs were selected out of a number of submissions.“They had a contest to pick the artist and he was a perfect pick,” said Mayor Matt Waligora.Szatkowski took seven days to create the piece. He merged two of his submissions from the contest to create what people can now see off of the corner of 5th Avenue and Chisholm St. The piece embodies the core values of Habitat for Humanity’s mission. Volunteers took another seven days to put the mural into place and paint the bricks.“It shows everything that Habitat wants to depict to everyone,” said Szatkowski. “When you look at the picture or the mural, I think even children could understand.”The project which was expected to be completed in fall came just in time for the 4th of July. The Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan and Habitat for Humanity both chipped in funds to make the artwork possible. Now, the city will have more beauty for locals and outsiders to enjoy for years to come.“The city has taken a more arts and culture aspect and direction in the past couple years and this obviously adds to that,” said Waligora.People can check out the design over at the Habitat for Humanity Restore located at the corner of 5th Avenue and Chisholm Street.For more information on Habitat for Humanity of Northeast Michigan, visit http://www.habitatnemi.org/AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Fuel Tanks Leak in the Basement of Mr. Ed’s IGANext What’s Trending for July 2last_img read more

REVEALED: DONEGAL BIN COMPANY HAS DISPOSAL LICENSE REVOKED

first_imgFerrys – has lost its waste collection licenseA BIN company boss with multiple convictions for illegal dumping has had his waste collection license taken off him. The National Waste Collection Permit Office (NWCPO) has confirmed that Donegal’s biggest refuse company was told of its decision.Jim Ferry, who runs Ferry’s Refuse at Manorcunningham and covers most of the county, was was fined €12,000, ordered to pay costs of €30,000 to Donegal County Council and given a six month suspended jail sentence after his latest conviction. The 56-year-old father of six, of Rossbracken, Manorcunningham had contested 12 charges but was found guilty at Letterkenny District Court a trial.The case followed an extensive undercover investigation by Donegal County Council’s Waste Enforcement Officer, Dean McClintock.Covert video recordings showed a Ferry’s lorry dumping waste in pre-excavated holes in a field in Falcarragh in June 2010.Council officers later found more than 1,000 cubic metres of rubbish buried at the site. Former employee Marty McDermott claimed in court that he was paid €5,000 by someone he wouldn’t name to dump the waste in order to discredit Mr Ferry.Senior Counsel on behalf of Donegal County Council, Mr Richard Lyons BL, said Marty McDermott’s evidence was “wholly unbelievable” and “farcical” and told the judge that he was entitled to disregard it.Judge Paul Kelly said he found McDermott’s evidence to be “vague” and “unconvincing.”Donegal County Council has confirmed that Ferry’s company has faced 28 charges before the courts in the past 15 years.Mr Ferry was given four separate suspended prison sentences during various cases before Letterkenny District Court. He now has until August 11 to apply to Offaly District Court in an attempt to have the decision of NWCPO overturned. The council runs the national office.If he fails to win the case, it will close the company. It’s not clear how this would effect customers.Mr Ferry recently paid fines and fees of €274,000 to the Revenue Commissioners for failing to pay VAT collected from his customers.REVEALED: DONEGAL BIN COMPANY HAS DISPOSAL LICENSE REVOKED was last modified: July 28th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CasecourtdonegalFerry’s Refuse Collectionletterkennylast_img read more

Rep Vaupel State budget prioritizes education funding

first_img##### Categories: News,Vaupel News Spending plan also boosts smaller school districtsState Rep. Hank Vaupel today voted for a state budget that puts emphasis on education, spending a record amount on K-12 schools and helping smaller districts bridge a funding gap that has existed for decades.Vaupel, of Handy Township, said the Legislature has focused on improving education funding, investing in the future of children in every county in the state.“We are spending more on K-12 education than ever before in Michigan’s history, focusing on giving children the very best education possible,” Vaupel said. “Our budget increases spending for career and technical education by one-third, giving more people a chance to learn a trade and fill the in-demand jobs across the state. These are good-paying jobs that can help improve the everyday lives of families in Michigan.”Vaupel said the state budget also prioritizes public safety by adding Michigan State Police troopers to protect communities and increasing funding for local governments to maintain law enforcement officers.“We are training another 150 State Police troopers who will monitor our roads and our neighborhoods to keep family safe,” Vaupel said. “We’ve also increased funding to local governments so they can maintain vital services for our communities.”Other aspects of the state budget include:The 2017-18 budget spends less on the state budget next year than was spent during the current year.Overall growth in spending does not exceed the rate of inflation. Just like families across Michigan, the Legislature is tightening the state’s belt by cutting inefficient programs and eliminating waste in state government.The Legislature addresses the need for more road and bridge repair and maintenance by allocating a record amount of money for transportation and water delivery systems.The budget helps make life better in communities across Michigan by adding money for road repairs, public safety departments, parks and other programs to improve our daily lives.The plan pays down millions of dollars in debt, helping relieve state liability and opening the door for a more secure financial future.center_img 20Jun Rep.
