Infill wasn't approved

by Lisa Brown

 COUNTY - A company has been fined $2,500 for infilling along the shoreline of an island in St. Margarets Bay without a government okay.

 Frank Georges Island Investments Limited was also ordered to follow an approved project description in installing the wharf which caused the issue in the first place.

 The case was before the provincial court in Bridgewater November 23 when the company pleaded guilty to a charge of harmfully altering fish habitat.

 That happened between July and October 2010 when 258 square metres were infilled in an intertidal zone on the island off Seabright.

 Since charges were laid last fall, officials have worked with the Department of Fisheries to correct the problem. The court heard the area is now in an acceptable condition.

 A charge against Anton Viehbeck - listed with Joint Stocks as company director, president and secretary - was withdrawn.
