Compost Bin Reminder

Compost bins must be out on the street by 8:00 AM Friday mornings, between May and October, and should be put out every week to prevent them from becoming too heavy. When heavy the compost bins get more scratched-up and could sustain damage from the arms of the truck having to hold them tighter. Branches are not permitted in the compost bins. Only Town compost bins will be picked-up.

Thank you!

The Town would like to thank all of the summer and pool staff for their good work over the summer. We would also like to thank the sponsors of the free swim; Edwards & Edwards Public Accountants, Leisel’s Buns & More, Schneyder Harvesting and Summit Electrical Solutions.

Compost Bins

The Town has green compost bins still available. The bin cost is $95 each and will be owned by the purchaser. The Town will empty the bins weekly at no charge between May and October. If you have ordered one but still have not received it please contact the Town Hall.

The compost bins are for yard waste (grass clippings and leaves) and compostable household waste. Meat, bones, branches, plastic bags and any other non-compostable materials are not permitted in the bins.

Flood Irrigation

In an effort to maintain consistent water pressure throughout the irrigation system, Council passed a motion to enforce current Bylaws prohibiting flood irrigation and set out new penalties for non-compliance:

a. First offence warrants a warning letter.

b. Second offence; a $500.00 fine will be issued.

c. Third offence will result in a one year suspension of the irrigation rights plus continuance of payment for the normal annual irrigation fees as set from time to time. Non-payment of the fees will result in the fees being transferred to the tax roll of the property.

Peace officers will be monitoring and enforcing this situation.
