  • Council 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. 

  • Sunday, June 30 - 7 PM - Garnish Community Center - "Run the Rock" is coming to Garnish.  Full details here.

  • Council Advisory - Speed Feed Back Device Data for Playground Location

Speed Feed back Data Report June 10, 2024

Location - Playground

Data for May 6 through June 10, 2014

Vehicles recorded  =  1294

Highest speed recorded   =  45 kph  (3 instances)

Average speed for location for period   =  36 kph

The device will be recording speeds on Waterline Road as soon as it can be moved.

  • Posted May 26 - Council is looking for volunteers to serve on a committee with Dianne Gregarity to create a plan to restore the Garnish Lighthouse.  JCP Funding has been approved for the work.  If you have the time and are interested, please contact Town Clerk Ruth at 825.2330.


  • Council 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 regular basis.
