The municipality is monitoring the situation in regards to our community centres and other facilities.

“The Municipality takes the health of residents and visitors very seriously and is carefully monitoring the situation regarding the COVID-19 virus,” Mayor Brian Ropp commented. Ropp added, “We will continue to act with the best interests of our residents and it is crucial that we mitigate the risk to the community”.

This was a difficult decision to make and we understand that these closures may inconvenience residents. We are hopeful that the current situation improves and does not affect our operations any further. The Municipality will monitor best practices and decisions made from all levels of government.
