Beach Cleaning: 
Council of the Resort Village of Cochin and its foreman extend apologies for the failure to clean the beaches of seaweed and other debris in a timely manner.  The project was started but the tractor broke down part way through.

The estimated cost of repairs is in the range of $17,000 and the age of the unit and the number of hours on it are such that council is wrestling with the question of whether to proceed with the repairs or buy another unit.  That then raises the issues of new or used?

Council has located a dealer which is prepared to lend us a skidster for a week with delivery on Monday, June 18 with a view to seeing if such a unit will meet our needs.  The new or used issue will still have to be determined.

Council anticipates having all the beaches cleaned by the end of next week.  

Residents are asked to remove from the beaches all items which will impede efficient cleaning of the beach.

Pickup of leaves and tree and bush branches and trimmings: 
On another matter, the Village will not again be picking up bagged leaves until after the September long weekend.  The cost of labour is too great.  In 2019 there will be two pickups:  after the May long weekend and after the September long weekend.  These 2018 and 2019 pickups will be for leaves bagged in clear plastic bags only and do not include tree and bush trimmings: leaves only.  Residents will have the responsibility of taking leaves not in clear plastic bags and tree and bush trimmings to the Village’s land-fill which is open Saturday, Sunday and Statutory Mondays form 10am to 4pm.  Residents should not allow this type of refuse to build up over the summer but should take the material to the land-fill.


Cochin Days 2018:
Cochin Days 2018 will be held August 10 - 13, 2018. Please plan to join us as volunteers are needed in order to host this event. Our success depends on you! Please call the Village Office if you are interested in organizing, helping or sponsoring our 2018 activities.
