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.

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.

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.
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.
