Attention Business/Non-Profit Organizations! We need your help!

The 2015 Business Façade Improvement Program has been a success this year! For the 2016 program, the City is applying to Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT) for additional funding to double the number of the number of façade projects completed.  Each project is eligible for a $5,000 rebate for up to 50% of the project cost. To receive the extra funding, the City needs help from businesses/non-profit organizations to show an interest/demand for increased funding to the program.

City businesses and non-profit organizations can apply for grant funding for 2016.  Applications will be available on the City’s website in January.

Please express interest and ideas by Wednesday, December 2 to the City Planner, Urszula Walus at to assist us in obtaining this additional funding for the community.

Notice of Snow Removal

The City’s Streets and Traffic Bylaws require all downtown businesses and property owners to remove the ice and snow from the sidewalks in front of or adjacent to their premises PRIOR to 10:00 a.m. on each business day (Monday to Saturday inclusive). This applies to all businesses regardless of their individual operating hours or days.

The City will inspect the sidewalks to determine that sufficient cleaning has been completed. If it is determined that more attention is required, the City will attend to the matter. The minimum charge for cleaning the sidewalk is $100.00 (one hundred dollars) which will be levied against the respective property owners.

Collection of any outstanding accounts at December 31st will be made through property taxation. With rising liability claims, clean sidewalks will keep everyone out of the courts and customers downtown.

Thank you for your cooperation. Enquiries may be directed to the Bylaw Enforcement Department at 250-992-5743.
