Advisory - Litterbugs beware - The new
paving job through town over the past month or so has resulted in
all of the litter in the ditches between Frenchman's Cove through
Garnish being removed. Already, we are noticing pop cans, and
other litter appearing in the recently, perfectly clean ditches.
Everyone is asked to make a special effort to keep our now - clean
ditches free of your garbage. Take it home and put it in a
garbage bag where it belongs. Everyone's cooperation is
expected and appreciated. Let's all do our part to keep
our town as clean as possible.
Posted June 26 - Council Advisory - Because no one is paying property tax on the land past the new Lions Center towards Frenchman's Cove, Council intend to ask Crown Lands for ownership of all that property on the Fortune Bay side of Sunset Drive as far as the Frenchman's Cove boundary. Anyone who has any objection to the Town's application are asked to contact the Town Office ASAP.
Posted June 26 - Request for Comments - Council is presently working with a consultant to develop a town plan that will give municipal government direction for the next 20 years. You can find a draft version of the plan here. You may pick up a printed version of the document at the Town office. Council is inviting comments from residents. Either hand in your written comments, call 826.2330 or speak to our Town Clerk at the Town Hall during business hours. Deadline for submissions is July 31.

On race day a portion of Sunset Drive extending from Maher Avenue (corner of Sherman's May's house) to Seniors Seaside Take-out and Convenience, will be closed to all vehicle traffic from 10:50 AM to 12:30 PM. The road will be open to pedestrians and emergency vehicles.

The device will be recording speeds on
Waterline Road as soon as it can be moved.
Advisory - Be Advised - Your speed is being recorded
- Next time you drive by the playground entrance, look to the right
and you will see a Digital Speed Display and Data Recorder.
The solar powered device will display your speed and record it.
The device will be moved to troublesome parts of Sunset Drive as
soon as we get permission form the Dept. of Highways. We
have far too many speeders in town now, and we anticipate that
problem will worsen once we have new pavement. Council cannot
stop speeders, but we can inform them of their speed. Data
collected by the device will be passed along to the RCMP on a
