December 2023 - Happy Holidays

News from the Town Office

On Behalf of the Council and Staff, we wish you a happy, healthy, safe holiday season


Volunteer of the Year — What a response in 2023! In 2021, Council established a

Volunteer of the Year Award. This year we had nine nominations for Volunteer of the year.

The presentation will be during the Old Fashioned Christmas, right after the Choir performs,

approximately 6:00 p.m. We will post the names of the winner and nominees in next month’s

newsletter and on our Facebook page following the event.

Pet Licenses and Business Licenses expire on December 31st. If you are

breeding your pet, you do need a special license, check in with the staff at the office to get more


Harassment Training — Kudos to the 74% of our Committee members who have taken the

Harassment training. We’d still like to see that get to 100%, the course is online, enrollment is

free. The link is:Courses Overview - Enough Already ( Please forward a

copy of your completion certificate to the Town Office, so we know you’ve taken it to:

Loraas Bins — If they are cracked or have wheel problems, please let us know at the Town

Office and we will get a replacement bin to you. In order to preserve our pavement, please

place your black and blue carts right at the edge of the pavement.

Parking and Snow Removal — Winter is coming, obstructions on streets can cause

problems with snow removal. Please keep vehicles and trailers off street parking, especially after

a snowfall. The snow removal policy is for primary areas first, followed by residential streets and

lastly, back lanes. When you see our equipment moving snow, please wait for them to finish

before proceeding.

Wipes in the Pipes — These are not good for our sanitary sewer system, even if they do

say flushable . They do not dissolve enough before getting to our pumps. To prevent back ups in

your home, or the town pumps, please toss them into the trash.

Building Information — If you are altering your home/garage, there may be permits

required. Please ensure that you get your permit in advance of starting your project.

COVID Rapid Test Kits are still available for pick up at the Town Office. Check Health Canada for some extended expiry dates.

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Be Kind
