Snow Clearing Off HFCC Sidewalk
Topic: HFCC Affairs

Hi folks,

Last Monday, January 12, 2009, we assembled group of volunteers to remove snow and ice off the sidewalk of HFCC in compliance with the City By-Law or else we would have been ticketed or fined heavily.

 Apparently, without our knowledge, two notices were served to our place. First, Saturday Jan. 10th at around 1:00 pm – form letter was shoved into our mail slot; second, Monday Jan. 12th 1:00 pm, Rey Viquiera found the second notice posted at the front door of HFCC with the warning that should the inspector find the place not done on his next visit that we will be ticketed and could be charged as non-compliant.

Today’s issue of Spectator, page A15, under the Action Line of Al MacRURY, “Sidewalks covered in snow or ice can cost you money” , explains fully this municipal by-law and the possible consequence for non-compliance.  Have a look at it if you have the chance.

The emergency crew was assembled right away and by 7:00 pm we had the sidewalk cleared off snow and ice.  We just averted getting charge or ticketed. In the old days, Abe Estrabillo, when he was still with the City Department of Works, he usually called me if a notice is just about to be served to us. Since Abe retired, we don’t have an advocate anymore. Our sincere “thank you” to the volunteers of the day, they are as follows: Rey Guibao, Buddy Guevarra, Nat Sadsad, Rey Viquiera, Joe Monaco, Fil Santos, Jun Policarpio, Ben Baliat and this writer.

Action plan to address future events.

·         While we are waiting in the procurement of a snow blower, Rey Viquiera agreed to clean the sidewalk every time there is a need at $25 per occurrence. This is still on line with the previous arrangement with G.T.Tallara, $25 for him to remove the snow from the sidewalk in addition to him plowing the parking lot.

·         Snow blowers are out of the stock at the moment from any supplier.

·         We are pursuing the best way where to store the Snow Blower. One neighbor volunteered his back garage as our storage.

·         We will try to find another venue.

The first recipient, picture below, Leyte Association of Ontario in support of their project to provide housing to the mudslide victims of Guinsagoon, Leyte. The amount is $3000.00 half of the $6000.00 collected during the fund raising drive in January and February of 2006.
