SPRING CLEAN-UP HAS BEEN CANCELLED
In an effort to assist residents, Council has waived residential landfill tipping fees from April 18, 2015 through to and including May 3, 2015.
Further, that residential garbage is defined as garbage hauled into the landfill in non-commercial vehicles such as pick-up trucks and utility trailers and that trucks larger than one-ton will be considered commercial vehicles.

Public Works out in full force
Cancelling Spring Clean-Up has allowed our Public Works crews to focus on much needed infrastructure work, particularly repairs to our streets and sidewalks. Signs like this will be at various locations throughout our City. Please proceed with caution and obey all signs and traffic control persons.
A new sidewalk is being built on Pentland Crescent. It will provide a safe pedestrian route for students accessing the back entrance of Voyageur Elementary School.
This is one of the City’s major projects for 2015 with an estimated budget of $340,000. The work includes stormwater improvements, new curb and gutter, new sidewalk on one side of the street and a completely new road surface and extends from Elliott Street up Evans Drive, Hoy Street and English Avenue to the intersection of Hartley Street. The project is expected to take approximately 8 weeks.
