2017 12 stpierreCouncil for the Village of St. Pierre will have their hands full in 2018 as a lot of their underground infrastructure needs to be replaced.

Mayor Mona Fallis notes a lot of the sewer and water lines on some of the main roads and original streets are up to 70 years old and have been collapsing in certain spots.

"We thought this might be a good time to start to look at ‘is there a better way of managing our costs and is it just actually just jumping into it and replacing most of it or is it maybe to refurbish some of the lines and how they can be used better and is there a longevity to them that we’ve exhausted or are they still in good shape.'"

Fallis says some of the work has already begun as public works staff have been patching some of the areas in the lines. She notes a project like this requires a lot of planning.

"We are going to start in the planning stages. Some of the work has been done but I think this is such a huge cost to the community that we will have to do it in steps and we have to prioritize where the needs are and go from there. I think we’re just going to be in the planning stage but there’s a lot of work to do in that phase."

Fallis adds other plans for 2018 include continuing to encourage recycling and composting which, in the end, she says reduces tipping fees for the landfill.
