TOWN HALL UPDATE >>> Town Hall and Town of Bridgewater public offices will remain closed for the rest of the day because of the storm.
DESBRISAY MUSEUM >>> DesBrisay Musum is closed today.
TRANSIT >>> Because of the forecast timing of the February 2 storm and the types of precipitation, Bridgewater Transit service is cancelled on February 2.
NO ON-STREET PARKING >>> A reminder that during and after a storm, under Section 139 of the Motor Vehicle Act, no person is permitted to park on a street that could obstruct winter maintenance. Your vehicle could be towed, so please be prepared to find off-street parking during and after a storm as clean-up operations take place.
SNOW-CLEARING REMINDER >>> Do not move or plow your snow on to a street or sidewalk. Not only is that not helpful to drivers and pedestrians alike, it's actually a violation of Section 318 of the Municipal Government Act. Under the rules in that section, no person shall deposit snow or ice on the travelled way of a street or near a portion of the travelled way that hinders clearing efforts.
WASTE COLLECTION >> Collection has been cancelled for the Town of Bridgewater and the Municipality of Lunenburg and rescheduled in both areas for Saturday, February 6. The Community Recycling Centre will delay opening until 12:30 p.m. Road conditions will be considered. An update will be provided.
