Andrews residents frustrated Residents on Calder Road in St.
Andrews say they're frustrated by having a trucking company nearby on what they describe as "very much a residential" street. Though Calder Road is zoned agriculturally, trucking company Hawker's Hauling has been operating there for around 20 years under a conditional use permit that allows trucks to pass down the street only during certain hours. Neighbours of the business want something done about the situation, claiming that noise and pollution from trucks is destroying what once was an idyllic neighbourhood. Tracey Mendrun, who lives next to the business, says that since moving in to her home with her family a few years ago, she was informed that the business would be moving. Since then, she's received conflicting messages from the municipality, but the end result is still the same Hawker's Hauling has remained where it is. "In the past, the municipality has acknowledged that there shouldn't be a trucking company on our street," said Mendrun. "We attended a meeting almost two years ago, where they all agreed with us and said that he shouldn't be located out of there." But, Mendrun says, the RM has since decided not to take action and have the business moved, pointing out that as long as Hawker's Hauling continues to operate within the conditions of its permit, the municipality would be coach outlet purses on sale forced to spend thousands of dollars to buy out the business and have it relocated. Lorraine Frost, who has been living on Calder Road near the location of Hawker's Hauling for almost 30 years, says that this is precisely the reason that residents on the street were opposed to the business being granted a permit in the first place. "Now we have a situation where this business shouldn't have ever been (granted a permit to set up on Calder Road) several years ago, and now the municipality doesn't want to do anything about it because it would cost too much money," said Frost. "It's unbelievably loud the noise, the diesel fumes. We have trucks coming and going virtually constantly during the hours they're allowed," explained Mendrun. "When our kids were younger, it was a big issue when putting them to bed, and now it's not a lot of fun to have to deal with teenagers who get woken up at six in the morning by a loud truck. "It's a nightmare it never stops." Frost echoed Mendrun's concerns, saying that she can't remember the last time there weren't trucks running down coach outlet coupons hsn Calder Road. "There's always activity and noise and banging," said Frost. "It's always loud and there's diesel fumes all over, and we want the municipality to do something about it." Unfortunately for the residents of Calder Road, the municipality isn't about to go spending taxpayer money to relocate the business, according to St. Andrews CAO Sue Sutherland. "It's been requested that we up and move the business to a more suitable area it can't be expected that we'll use tax coach outlet login dollars to do that, to buy out the owner and move him to a more suitable area," said Sutherland. "It's not fair to play with municipal tax dollars to do something like that." Sutherland added that Hawker's Hauling has never been found not to be in compliance with the rules set down by their conditional use permit during the course of several inspections and spot checks by the municipality. "I do feel for the residents, I've sent bylaw officers out to inspect the business, and I've never found any issues that he's not in compliance with," coach outlet sale quick said Sutherland, adding that granting the conditional use permit to Hawker's Hauling was a public process that consisted of public hearings, where these concerns were apparently not initially raised. "This is a business that's been conditionally approved at this particular point, they're totally legal," said Sutherland. "We do understand the resident's concerns, and we've been out to check on them.
It's not like we haven't been doing our due diligence and ignoring these concerns we've responded and haven't found this business violating any components of its conditional use permit." Hawker's Hauling owner Doug Niebel declined to be interviewed, but he did assert that the company was following all the rules set down by its permit, and said that if residents of the nearby area had a problem, he would appreciate it if they would approach him to potentially work out a solution. Both Frost and Mendrun, however, say their problem isn't with Niebel, but rather with the municipality for allowing the company to operate next to their homes.
