NO MOTORIZED VEHICLES ARE ALLOWED ON ANY GREEN SPACE WITHIN THE VILLAGE LIMITS – Quads, ATV's dune buggy's or side by sides are prohibited on any roadway or green space in the village. Bylaw officers are cracking down on this issue.

WEED SPRAYING – Spring has sprung and we start thinking about flowers and green grass, unfortunately weeds also appear. The annual spraying to help prevent weeds will be happening during the last two weeks of May, weather permitting. If you have any sensitivity, please be sure to avoid the open grassy areas and keep your windows closed until it has time to settle.
