Know where to find ticks. Ticks do not fly or jump. Instead, they hang out on shrubs, bushes and tall grass waiting for hosts to brush against the vegetation, so the tick can hitch a ride.
Pickup begins Monday, September 24, 2018. Branches bundled 2ft x 3ft not to exceed 50 lbs. Loose brush and tree branches may be brought to the designated chipping area in the Town Public Works Yard. Please ensure that all material is free of rope, wire, etc. Bags will be available at the Town Office at $3.00 per bundle of 10 as of Monday, September 17, 2018. This service will end on Friday, November 9, 2018 and is not available to large scale or commercial contractors.
Flushing of the Town’s water mains will take place on Tues., Oct. 16, Wed., Oct. 17 and Thurs. Oct 18 between the 7:00am and 4:00pm. This may cause low water pressure and/or discoloured water for some. Running your cold-water taps may help clear your pipes. You may wish to refrain from doing laundry during this time. For further information, or if problems arise during this operation, please call the Town Office at 529-5120.
Residents sometimes will see some discolouration in their water due to the fact that the hot water tank needs to be flushed. This may not solve each concern but it is a place to start. NB Power has produced a “how to” for your information.
If you see or encounter any animal that you know or suspect has rabies the first step is to call Public Health at 811 to make a report. The process for dealing with infected animals begins with Public Health who in turn works through a process with the Department of Natural Resources to address the situation.
