  • Presentation by Jean-Claude Cormier - Second Chance Workshop/Enviro Plus - Residents are encouraged to drop off unused or unwanted furniture at 315 Baig Blvd, or call 506-853-7722 to have it picked up for you. Mr. Cormier also invites anyone who has the ability/skill to fix furniture to visit the store as they are always in need of a helping hand. Most furniture that comes in needs a bit of love and repair, and so they would appreciate any time that volunteers can give. Please drop in or call if you are interested in volunteer opportunities.



  • Council approved a motion to proceed with running a pilot project this year to use an alert system for residents for winter parking bans. Instead of the previous blanket parking ban, residents will be notified when there will be a parking ban issued.
