C&D Site Scale Replacement

On Monday, June 6, work will begin on the installation of a new weight scale at our C&D Site (landfill). We anticipate this work to take 1-2 weeks.

During this time, we will not be accepting any disposal of demolitions, disposal of non-sorted material or disposal from non-residents as we will not have access to a scale and the entrance to our site will be congested.

Our goal is to keep the site open for general use by our residents however, we may at some point be forced to close the site completely for a short period of time. If this is required, we will provide notice to the public as soon as possible.

We ask that you use caution if you plan to visit the beach and we apologize for any inconveniences this work may cause.

Meeting Schedule Change

Beginning in May, all Committee of the Whole and Regular Council meetings will be held on Tuesdays instead of Mondays. This change was made at Monday night's Regular Council meeting, after the approval of an amendment to both our Council Meetings and Proceedings and Committees of Council policies.

All meeting times, agendas and supporting documents will continue to be posted on our website at https://bit.ly/3cMwSpJ.
