  • Posted October 8 - Council Advisory -  This notice to dog owners - Council has received numerous complaints related to dog owners leaving poop behind as they walk their animals around town. Some users of the Dog Park are guilty of the same offence.  We are asking all dog owners to be considerate of other walkers by picking  up after your pet.  And it is not the responsibility of Council Staff to pick up the poop left behind in the dog park.  If dog owners fail to comply, once the area becomes a health hazard, Council will have no choice but to close down the park to all users.  Your cooperation is expected and appreciated.

  • Posted October 8 -Council Advisory -  Up For Bids - Council is asking for seals bids on the property that was once was owned by Ernest John Walters.  There are issues with this small parcel of land. If you wish to know more and the minimum bid, speak to Ruth at the Town Hall or call  826.2330

  • Posted Oct. 8 - Council Advisory - Council has received no indication that the piece of land across  from the parking lot near the bridge across the Garnish River on the right side of  Water Line Road is owned by anyone.  The land is at the intersection of Waterline Road and the Long Run Trail that goes to Sunset Drive, on the right. Council intends to use that property to expand the parking lot for use by trail users coming into town and for users of the Water Park.   The land to be cleared is the piece immediately before  the Long Run Trail.   Anyone who has object to this project are asked to contact Ruth at the Town Hall at 826.2330  ASAP.  You will be asked to put your object in writing.
