STEPHENVILLE CROSSING Brian Joy is seeking a third consecutive term in the Sept. 24 municipal election in Stephenville Crossing.
As co-chair of the finance committee, he appreciates residents trusting him to make decisions on their behalf during his two terms on council, one each as mayor and deputy mayor.
During the last four years Stephenville Crossing has seen 20 new housing starts and significant upgrades to its infrastructure, along with upgrades to Main Street, Hogan Crescent, Gale’s Drive, and Brake’s Lane extension.
“We have been successful in acquiring funds, with lift stations, water wells, and pumping stations receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars in upgrades,” he said.
The town has purchased and paid off a new loader and council ensured the fire department has the equipment to keep its residents safe.
Joy is proud of the upgraded playground equipment the town obtained for the small children.
He said there are more goals, including sewer treatment, road/street upgrades and dealing with dilapidated structures.
Joy is eager to see the completion of the town’s proposed “Veterans Memorial Trail” on the land adjacent to the cenotaph and working with the town’s beautification/conservation committee.
