Under the Town's Phased Ash Tree Removal and Replacement Program, the Parks & Facilities Division is currently removing Municipally-owned trees on a priority basis as determined by any danger/threat to the public or public property. Replenishing the removed trees will occur during usual planting seasons in the fall and spring, and a different species of tree will be planted. For more information, please visit our EAB page.

Coyote Sightings Prompts Reminder from the Ministry of Natural Resources

Changes To Canada Post Delivery Service

The Town has learned that some residents have been visited by Canada Post Representatives indicating that their property is a proposed location for a Community Mail Box (CMB) and for any questions, to contact Town staff. Council continues to oppose these changes in delivery service. If you have any questions about the upcoming changes to delivery service, you are reminded to contact the Canada Post Customer Call Centre at 1-844-454-3009, not the Town. Canada Post Corporation Representatives attended Council on April 1 to present information surrounding upcoming changes to its residential delivery service. A copy of the presentation can be viewed at the Agendas and Minutes page.
