Municipal Office and Work Sites Temporarily Closed to the Public
We understand and empathize with the growing concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) on both an international level and here at home.
In order to decrease the potential spread of the virus, we are taking precautionary measures to reduce the impact on municipal operations and our communities and, effective immediately, will be closing our Municipal Offices and Worksites to the public until April 6th, 2020.
Steps have been taken to have most of our administrative staff working from their homes in order to mitigate community spread of COVID-19 with the goal of protecting the health and safety of everyone. During this time, we remain committed to providing our residents the level of service they expect and will remain available to answer your calls and emails as per usual.
Our staff’s contact information can be found on-line or by calling 902-798-8391 so your call can be transferred.
Meetings and Events
All public meetings and previously scheduled meetings, all municipal events and all recreation activities including our equipment loan programs have been cancelled until April 6th.
