On September 25th, 2018 the Town hosted a Public Open House to discuss proposed concepts for the rehabilitation of Market Square and Market Wharf. Over 100 people were in attendance and the Town received excellent feedback. If you were unable to attend, below is a copy of the handout that was provided that evening. There is also a link at the bottom of the page under “Attachments” which will make the image larger.
Given the large number of municipal council vacancies that exist currently throughout the Province, and the administrative difficulties that would ensue for the municipalities by delaying by-elections to fill these vacancies until May 2019, Elections NB have decided to schedule the next set of municipal by-elections at the earliest possible date (and the latest possible date before Christmas) on Monday, December 10, 2018.
The Town is wrapping up a very busy construction season, including the following projects:
Water, wastewater, stormwater upgrades, lower end of Edward St.

Water and wastewater improvement, section of Ernest St.
The Town of Saint Andrews is working cooperatively with the Department of Energy and Resource Development (ERD) to lower the deer numbers in a manner that is safe, effective and acceptable to most residents. The 2018 Nuisance Deer Management Assistance Program (NDMAP) will allow private landowners within the Town to receive permits to harvest ONE antlerless deer on their property. The permits are issued to hunters, chosen by the landowner, to harvest deer on their property.
SNBSC has now replaced the community blue bins throughout the region with curbside recycling carts. It is clear that Saint Andrews residents have embraced the program, as the first pick-up day on Sept. 6th resulted in 4 tonnes of recyclables being diverted from the landfill from our Town alone.
Saint Andrews is updating its Municipal Plan. The Municipal Plan is a document that your council will use to ensure they are making decisions in a way that is in the public interest. The town is mandated by the New Brunswick Community Planning Act to do this every ten years.

The Southwest New Brunswick Service Commission will be launching a new residential recycling program this year, replacing the current system of community bins. The new service will see new mobile recycling containers delivered to resident’s homes in the region beginning in July, with the program for picking up the containers starting in September. The new program will see an expansion of recyclables accepted, including more kinds of plastic and tin cans.
