News from the Town Office Town Council adopted the budget for 2023 at their April Meeting. It’s a good news and bad news budget. Council decided that they would not have a tax increase this year, that’s the good news. However, that will mean that our road work will not be as extensive as last year, but sidewalks are back in the budget. The swimming pool project was successful, the bottom of the deep end was replaced. We also are planning some capital repairs at the Communiplex (wall and roof repairs), while the Communiplex Board will be helping to fund a lift (elevator) with the help of a federal grant to get the facility (except dressing room level) wheelchair accessible.
Spring Cleaning—Thank goodness the last of the snow is almost gone. Unfortunately, that means all the mess is visible again. Please remember to trim back hedges and trees from sidewalks, clean up debris and keep weeds down and lawns trimmed.
Welcome to our new foreman Kelvin Gregoire. Our Public Works staff will be out and about with mowers, trucks and tractors, as well as working on our streets and sidewalks. Please keep them safe by ensuring you proceed only when safe to do so.
2023 Business Licenses—If you have not made application to the Town for a development permit, please pick up an application at the Town Office to make your business legal and keep it legal by paying for your 2023 license.
Pets —Remember we have a pooper scooper section in our animal control bylaw. All pets must be licensed and on leashes when not in your yard. If you have a concern, Bylaw Enforcement is in town monthly to deal with any written complaints or concerns. COVID Rapid Test Kits are still available for pick up at the Town Office.
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Be Kind
