New South End parks

Our newest park – Shalom Park – in the south end of Barrie.  As part of our commitment to providing more services for neighbourhoods in the south end, we are building four more parks this year.  I took Cassie here last weekend and she loved it, great new playground and lots of room to run.

Go JEBCO Go

Congrats to Barrie’s JEBCO, a steel manufacturing company on Ellis Drive, who have won two major contracts.  See details here:

Here’s the part I really like – they are hiring and have added more skilled industrial jobs in Barrie.

“In 2011 alone , JEBCO has added 40 new staff to its team and is looking for an additional 10-15 team members to address its continued growth and commmitments into 2012 and 2013. “As a growing and expanding company, we are looking to add staff that will be part of our team for the long haul. Skilled trades such as welders, fitters and project managers familiar with medium to heavy steel fabrications are the ideal candidate” says company President, Brett Murray.”
