Public Notice - Winter Maintenance

rsz img 5437-resized

The Municipality of West Nipissing reminds all residents that their garbage cans/recycling boxes must be placed between the road and the sidewalk to avoid damage by the snow plow or trucks this winter.  If there is no sidewalk on your street, please make sure that your garbage can/recycling box is placed at a sufficient distance to avoid the snow plows from hitting them and accessible for municipal employees doing the garbage and recycling pick-ups.

The Municipality will not be responsible to replace damaged garbage cans/recycling boxes.  We appreciate your assistance in making our job easier and enabling us to perform a better service for the residents.

Section 5.2 of By-Law 2015/62 – Parking Restricted During Night Hours in Winter Months: No person shall park a vehicle on any highway under the jurisdiction of the Municipality, between the hours of twelve o’clock midnight and seven o’clock in the morning, during the period from the first day of November in one year, until the last day of March in the next year, except physicians on emergency calls and operators of authorized emergency vehicles.

By-Law 2006/63 (as amended by By-Law 2011/63) – To Prohibit the Obstructing, Encumbering or Fouling of Highways or Bridges with Snow or any other Matter: No person shall deposit or cause to be deposited any snow, ice or any other matter upon any highway, street, sidewalk or bridge; near a fire hydrant or as to obstruct drainage to any drains/sewer; push snow from a given property to the other side of the road; obstruct the safe movement of vehicles and pedestrians; and no person shall permit icicles to accumulate on any building on a commercial property as to become dangerous to persons passing on a sidewalk, street or pathway.

Thank you for your collaboration in making winter maintenance activities in West Nipissing safe and efficient.

    Parade of Lights 2016 In page banner ENG

     

    Rock 'N' Ribs, in partnership with the Municipality of West Nipissing and Twiggs Sturgeon Falls, is pleased to present the 1st Annual Rock 'N' Ribs Community Christmas Party!!!

    One of the main objectives of Rock 'N' Ribs is to help bring the community together and what better time, aside from ribfest weekend, than Christmas! After having visited several other communities during the Holiday Season and observing that every one of them hosted an annual celebration or parade culminating in the lighting of a community Christmas tree, we felt it was time West Nipissing had a community tree of our own?

    And so, directly following our annual Christmas parade, we invite all of you, young and old, to come join us for what will hopefully become a new annual tradition - the lighting of our very own tree 
    - which will remain lit every evening throughout December for everyone to enjoy and to remind us of how fortunate we are to have each other. Carolers will entertain us with a few Christmas favourites!

    Of course, that's not all! In true Rock 'N' Ribs fashion, we will be hosting a bonfire (with the help of our local volunteer firefighters), serving free hot chocolate and cider and hosting a free concert in Twiggs featuring Justin Beauchamp and Carl Dixon!

    Weather permitting, we will also be live streaming the entire event on a 12ft screen on the outdoor stage as well as via our YouTube and Facebook channels for those of you unable to join us!

    So this year, on December 2nd, come join us down at Minnehaha Bay for a good old fashioned get together and fill up on some community and Christmas spirit!
