Public Works Department

Our Public Works Department is a dedicated team working hard to maintain our municipality. Whether it’s plowing and sanding our roads, or repairing water issues, we strive to keep our community safe and looking its best.

 When is it an emergency?

The Township has an emergency number for the public to use in case of an emergency.
We have seen a significant number of calls to this number to report things such as frozen water lines or water breaks. Many of these calls are made late in the evening or the middle of the night. Our staff answers this phone as there may be an emergency that needs immediate attention.
We ask your consideration of the following:
  • Water breaks – are there barricades or pilons around it? If yes, we know about it.
  • Water line frozen? Please call in the morning. Staff will not be dispatched outside of regular hours to thaw frozen water lines.
  • Emergency? Can it wait until the office is open? If it can wait, please do so and call the office in the morning when staff are available to take the relevant information and help address your concerns.
