BRIDGE OPENING SEPT. 23rd!

BRIDGE OPENING

Saturday, September 23rd

4:00 pm

Your Mayor and Council are busy making plans for a very local celebration to recognize the hardship endured and cooperation from all the residents during the Sugarloaf Bridge Replacement.

The first vehicle will go across the bridge at 4:00 pm on Saturday, September 23rd. We have a vision of all the people on the bridge in the pedestrian walkway while a parade of emergency vehicles (that are too heavy to have used the bridge since the fall of 2013) go across the deck. An aerial photo will be taken to mark the occasion. We’ll follow up with cupcakes for all just off the west end of the bridge.

So. . . if you want to be there, you should know. . . walking access will be available from both sides starting at 3:30 pm. First vehicle traffic will be from west to east at 4:00 pm. The vehicles will circle around and drive back across east to west for the completed parade and celebration.

BRIDGE OPENING PARTY!

The Bridge is opening soon, and we’re having a little party to celebrate. Come join us to witness the first vehicle crossing, followed by cupcakes! Actual date to be determined, but either:

THURSDAY, the 21st

OR

FRIDAY, the 22nd

Stay tuned for details!

Water Shut-Off June 21st

CANCELLED Boil Water Notice CANCELLED

The Environmental Health Officer is recommending that the Boil Water Notice be lifted.

This is a result of the Water System being repaired and normal flows and pressures returned, the system has been thoroughly flushed and water sample results came back with no total coliform or E.coli counts.

No further boiling of water is required prior to using.

We can go back to enjoying the best tasting tap water in BC and the Yukon.

We thank everyone for their cooperation and understanding.

OFFICE CLOSED FRIDAY, MAY 5th

Please note that the Village Office will be CLOSED all day Friday, May 5th due to a scheduled BC Hydro power outage. Sorry for any inconvenience.
