Council will pay for fire watch services

Council action will keep residents from being evicted on Christmas eve

Colonial Beach Town Council held an emergency meeting on Sunday, Dec. 23 after officials were informed that Building Inspector Dextor Monroe was notified by the owner of the Beachgate Inn that he intended to to stop payment for fire watch services at the inn.

 

All members of Council were present including councilwoman elect Wanda Goforth, CBPD Chief Kenneth Blevins, Building Inspector Monroe, Town Attorney Andrea Erard, Town Manager Val Foulds and Town Clerk Kathy Flanagan.

Monroe told the council that owner Doug Simms originally agreed to pay for fire watch services through Dec. 26. Residents would to have to move out on the Dec. 27. Simms hired Northern Neck Building to perform the watches needed to ensure the safety of individuals staying there.

Monroe told the council today that on Dec. 22 the individual responsible for performing the fire watch notified Monroe that he has been instructed Simms to only work until 2 a.m. on Dec. 24.

The council passed a resolution authorizing Foulds to spend up to $4,000 to hire one or more qualified individuals to perform a twenty-four hour fire watch at the Beachgate Inn beginning at 2:01 a.m. on Dec. 24 and ending on Jan. 3 at midnight.

The council has also given Foulds permission to begin fire watch early if Simms terminates the services of Northern Neck Builders before 2 a.m. on December 24.
