Property Owner Advisory -
If you claim to own land within town
limits, and it is not registered with the town for Tax purposes, you
should do so immediately. Any properties that are
not registered, presently not being taxed, and which has not been
occupied or improved in anyway since 1994 is about to become the
subject of a Crown Land Application by the town.
Advisory - The Provincial 911 System is now active. Every
residence in Garnish has a street address. Your street number
should be displayed where it can bee seen on the house, or at the
end of the driveway. In an
emergency where minutes can mean the difference between life and
death, that number might save a life, possibly your own.
