Public Works

Our Town Manager is in charge of the Public Works Department, which presently has 3¬†employees, and some private contractors. During the summer season the workforce increases due to our ‘Summer Student’ program which allows students to work and assist in the Public Works department.

Public Works is responsible for the maintenance of all Municipal buildings (which includes the Community Hall, Library, Bowling Alley, Arena, Beach, Clinic, Township Office, Fire Hall, Warehouse, to name just a few), water and sewer operations, hockey arena ice-making and operation of the arena, vehicle maintenance, mowing of grass, snow removal, roads maintenance, campgrounds maintenance, and many other duties too numerous to list.

The Chief Building Officer, who presently works part-time, is responsible for all building permits and building inspections. For inquiries about the Chief Building Officer please feel free to contact

Without the Public Works Department our community would not be the same, and we thank them for their hard work!
