This is required due to the installation/connection of the new waterline.

Due to the recent complaint to OH&S by a resident, they were out within the past couple of days.  Prior to the complaint, the contractor would let traffic through when they were loading the trucks as soon as they could.  However, OH&S told them they are to STOP THE TRAFFIC until the trucks are loaded.  This means longer wait times but the contractor cannot disobey OH&S orders.   


The Contractor is operating within all OH&S guidelines and we are asking people to be patient and avoid unnecessary travel through the Construction Zone for the next few days.


We ask that you have patience and respect the flags persons.  Please do not harass them as they are just doing their job to keep you and the workers safe.  


Please remember that you are required to observe speed zones within the construction zone and adhere to the signage.  Any violations of speed limits or signage are liable for fines up to $1500.00.

As you are aware, there is a major infrastructure project going on in our community between the School and the Government Wharf.


There have been several complaints regarding Traffic Control and the condition of the passing area within the construction zone.


The Contractor is operating within all OH&S guidelines and we are asking people to be patient and avoid unnecessary travel through the Construction Zone for the next few days – possibly up to the end of next week.


Please be advised to expect longer delays during the next few days as well because of the area they are working in.  This is unavoidable and we ask that you have patience and respect the flags persons.  Please do not harass them as they are just doing their job to keep you and the workers safe.  


Please remember that you are required to observe speed zones within the construction zone and adhere to the signage.  Any violations of speed limits or signage are liable for fines up to $1500.00.

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.
