The Public Works Department would like to advise residents we have a Main Waterline Break on Cromer Avenue. Crews are on the scene working on the break. Water is shut off on Cromer Avenue at all businesses from The Ultramar at the intersection of Cromer Avenue and Duggan Street to the intersection of Cromer Avenue and Pinsent Drive except for Tim Hortons. The motoring public are asked to be cautious while driving on Cromer Avenue this morning as traffic is reduced to one lane and please pay attention to all signage and crew workers. We will post an update on this Water Break later this morning.

The Town of Grand Falls-Windsor, along with the College of the North Atlantic, currently have 16 participants enrolled in an Employment Readiness Training program for the older worker. The participants are between the ages of 55 and 64 and offer a wide range of skills and life experience.

I am seeking employers in the Hospitality and Retail sector in Grand Falls-Windsor and surrounding communities to consider our participants for a 2 week job placement beginning in January.

As a sponsor for the program, the Town of Grand Falls- Windsor will cover 50% of the wage paid to the employee during the duration of the job placement based on a 24 hour work week. Also we will cover the cost if special uniform/footwear is required.

I am encouraging employers to contact myself for more info on our program, and participants.

The deadline is December 09/2016
