One responsibilty of Public Works is to keep streets in good condition. Sidewalks and streetlights increase safety for pedestrians and drivers alike. The municipality has a modern storm sewer system to drain rainwater and snow meltwater. Most residences in the municipality also have access to a sewer system. Note that drinking water in the municipality still comes from private wells.
In the winter our Public Works team keeps our streets clean. To facilitate snow clearing, vehicles cannot be parked along municipal streets between midnight and 7:00 a.m. from November to April inclusively. Streets are sanded to reduce the dangers caused by build-ups of ice. Streets in the municipality are cleared in order of priority.
Streets in the municipality are clearly marked and signs indicate provincial speed limits along roadways. No vehicles are allowed on our public beaches. This decision was made to protect our fragile beach environment. To provide access to the water, the municipality has set up several boat ramps.
