Sand/Salt Mix at Public Works Yard

Limited supply chain issues require the Town to conserve salt resources; the complimentary salt/sand mixture at the Public Works Yard will no longer be available until further notice.

The reduced supply is affecting communities across Vancouver Island and notice was received recently that another shipment of salt may not be delivered until February.

The Town currently has a reserve of salt for application on local roads and streets.  We are incorporating more sand where appropriate to stretch out our supply for the winter months.

We appreciate residents who continue to shovel their sidewalks after a snowfall event and apologize for this inconvenience due to the temporary suspension of the salt/sand free service.
