Did you know?


-         Indiscriminate dumping is an ongoing problem in our community

-         The cost to clean up the indiscriminate is borne by the town – your tax dollars are going towards cleaning up somebody else’s mess

-         That if the person doing the indiscriminate dumping can be determined, he/she can be forced to clean up the mess and can also be fined


Following are pictures taken around our community of indiscriminate dumping.  In some areas, it is very difficult, maybe impossible to clean up the debris due to the location.

If you know who is responsible please do the right thing and report them.  Let’s take pride in our community and work together to make it a better, cleaner place to live.

50/50 Escalating Ticket Draw



The 50/50 Escalating Ticket Draw that was previously held at Davis Clover Farm on behalf of the Carmanville Habitat Committee will now be sold at G & M Services. Ticket Lottery License # is 14-10032600LT.


All persons who previously purchased a ticket will keep the same number you were originally assigned. Your ticket stubs have been kept in the box and your name is assigned to the corresponding number. If you have lost/misplaced your ticket stub and don’t know your number, you can call the town office at 534-2814.


Any new person who purchases a ticket will be entered into the current weekly draw. You will receive a ticket stub with your number on it and the ticket part with your name and corresponding number will be placed in the box for the weekly draws. Your name will be recorded next to that number in the binder and as you pay the $2.00 weekly the ticket sale will be recorded in this book.


If your number is drawn and you paid for the week of the draw, you will receive 50% of the ticket sales for that particular week or 50 % of the total escalated amount. If your number is drawn and you did not pay for the week of the draw, the money is not paid out and will escalate weekly until a number is drawn that has paid for the week of the draw.


The Carmanville Habitat Committee will receive the other 50% of the ticket sales. Quarterly they will donate 10% of their share alternating between the Carmanville Recreation Committee and the Carmanville Fire Department.


Ticket draws will be held every Monday Morning and will cover the period from the previous Monday Morning to Sunday Night.
