Boat Launch – Parking & Dock Use

Now that we have our newly paved road complete – we can celebrate another step towards Delta returning to normal. 

We are now getting many visitors returning to Delta, and it’s exciting to see so many fishing at the Channel.  

If you are at the Channel it would be appreciated if you could AVOID parking on the paved area near the boat ramp. This area is for boaters to launch and retrieve their boats, and for safety reasons it needs to be clear of vehicles.  This is also the only access point to launch emergency vehicles for water rescues – so again, its important to keep the area clear. 

Also please remember the dock is meant for boaters who are launching or retrieving their boats – so please yield to people who are launching, retrieving, or refueling. 

Enjoy the summer!

Tree Dump closed to trees – but open for branches 

The RM has advised that the tree dump is quite full and as a result will be temporarily closed to large trees.  They are erecting a cement barricade to prevent further dumpling of large trees. 
The have advised that small branches can be still left at the dump – residents are asked to to walk them in – there will also be room left for small quads.

Landline Update

At the AGM the executive was asked to contact Bell MTS regarding the numerous outages of the landlines and the poor cell phone service at Delta Beach. The follow letter was sent.

July 6, 2017
Dan McKeen
Vice Chair Bell MTS

Dear Mr. Mckeen;
I am contacting you on behalf of the Delta Beach Association Inc. The Delta Beach Association represents the property owners in the Delta Beach Manitoba area. Delta Beach is on the south shore of Lake Manitoba 23 KM north of Portage La Prairie Manitoba. We are a community of approximately two hundred property owners, both full-time and seasonal residence.
At our Annual General Meeting on July 2 the issue of the reliability of the landline service was brought up. Over the past four to five years we have experienced loss of service many times including three outages this week alone. All of these outages have been report through the proper channels at Bell MTS and service is “restored” in a reasonable time line.
The community needs to rely on landline service as we cannot rely on the cell as it is also very unreliable even though we are only 25 KM north of the Trans-Canada Highway.
The community is very concerned over the ability to contact emergency service if the need arose.

Yours Truly

Donald Clarkson
President
Delta Beach Association Inc.

On July 13 I received a call from Pamela Canfield Manager of Customer Services. We discussed the issue of the landlines and the cell phone coverage.
Later that day I received the follow email.

Good afternoon Mr. Clarkson,

I appreciated the opportunity to speak with you this morning to review your concerns with phone service at Delta Beach. I am pleased to share that, as of this morning, we believe we have identified the source of the issue. Our technicians are working to fix the source problem and we will continue to monitor the service over the next few days to ensure there are no other issues.

As promised, I have included a link to the Support page on our website.

https://www3.bellmts.ca/mts/support

Sincerely,
Pamela Canfield
Customer Relations Manager
T : 204 941-6800 Toll-Free: 1-800-263-1174

While this does not address our concerns over cell phone coverage we should have a solution to the on going landline issue.
