NO PARKING ON ROADWAY
Owners and or Visitors are not permitted to park on the road. The time limited to parking on the road is to drop off items or persons or pickup items or persons. Some Owners are not following this Bylaw and could have the appropriate Fines assessed to them. Roadways need to be clear for traffic flow, emergency first responders, garbage and recycling trucks to get by. Council thanks you for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

NO RECYCLABLES CAN BE PLACED IN GARBAGE BIN
Council continues to monitor the Organics Bin, the Recycling and the Garbage Bin. We have seen several items such as tin cans and cardboard in the garbage bin, when those items clearly can be placed in the recycling bins. If you are unsure of what items go where, please contact the Secretary
Sharon Bull at #604-466-9237 to obtain a recycling sheet. Council has noticed an improvement in the Organics Bin, but remember grocery bags cannot used, only a compostable bag.
