When will the snow be cleared off my street?
Every effort will be made to clean the streets in Town as soon as the snowfall stops. The Department of Highways is responsible for clearing Main Street and Beach Road. Residents are advised to not push snow into ditches as it will effect drainage in the spring.
 
Do you have any information on Crescent Creek Park?
There are currently no vacancies in the Park. Occasionally we receive notification when a home is for sale.
 
My sewer line is plugged. What do I do?
Clean the line from the house using a company such as Garry's Drain, Unijet or Rotorooter. There are many more. If the contractor advises the blockage is on the property line or Town property, the line should be videoed at your expense. Upon receipt of the video as proof of blockage, cost sharing may occur to correct the problem.
