Reminder to exercise caution around rivers and creeks
Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for Friday night and Saturday. Please exercise caution around rivers and creeks and stay away from the river's edge, due to elevated water levels, swift moving currents, and bank erosion.
Residents are also asked to check the storm drains in front of their properties and clear away any leaves from the openings. This will help to ensure adequate drainage for rainwater. Thank you!
