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.
Stormwater upgrades, lower end of Augustus St.
Water and wastewater improvement, section of Ernest St.
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.
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.
