January 2021 - A New Year!
Happy New Year from Council and Staff!
As we start 2021, we reflect on 2020 in hindsight, we would like to bring your attention to a few things. Thank You to our previous Mayor and Council for their service to the Town during their term of office, we missed acknowledging them earlier. A huge thanks as well, to you, the community for your perseverance as we have all had a new experience with the pandemic this past year. We are grateful to be relatively untouched, to date and we appreciate everyone following the guidelines that have been put in place by the public health officials. We also want to let you know that we appreciate your patience and understanding as town staff navigated the challenges of keeping operations as normal as possible. Some achievements in Allan in 2020: Main St. Sidewalk replacement, swimming pool prepared for 2021, sealing the roadway on Maple Drive and Sylvite Crescent, running an election safely in a pan- demic and a major upgrade to our Main Sewage Lift Station. Last but not least, the completion of the New Fire Hall, we would like to commend the many volunteers for the hours they put in. The facility is a credit to the community and we will plan a grand open- ing when we can gather again.
Dogs and Cats have been a particular challenge the past year, with people spending more time at home, we have had a record num- ber of animal complaints. Please remember, if your dog/cat isn’t in your fence, it must be on a leash. We have provisions in the Animal Control Bylaw for barking and cleaning up after your pets. As well, it’s that time of year again. Remember to licensee your dogs and cats by the end of February.
Snow Removal—when we have a snowfall, main traffic areas are cleared first, Main St, Princess St., 2nd Ave., 3rd Ave and Sas- katchewan St. The remainder of the residential streets get cleared next, followed, when time permits by lanes. Please help the snow clearing operations by keeping vehicles parked in driveways as much as possible.
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Be Kind.
