Please be advised that the Capital Projects Office will be commencing with remediation of the historic landfill site located on Main Street. This project solidifies the City’s commitment to sustainable communities. The scope of work includes removal of the roadway and sidewalks in order to access the historic landfill. The waste material and any contaminated soil will be removed and disposed of according to provincial regulations.

Private property will be accessible at all times and maintained by the contractor via traffic signs. I have attached a map for reference.

Flagging personnel will be onsite, please drive cautiously through the area.
