Position Available

Tourism, Culture and Heritage Committee

Do you believe our town could be doing more to promote tourism? Are you someone who has a passion for history? Many residents say our community is historic, yet little of days gone by is formally documented and stories of years ago remain untold. We want to ensure our history is not lost and, at the same time, promote our town as a tourist destination. Please consider lending your talents and join the Tourism, Culture, and Heritage Committee. It takes little of your time as we usually only meet once a month. Please contact the town office for further information. Tel. 229-6822; Email: hmcouncil@eastlink.ca

Fireworks

As a reminder to our residents, the Town does have a Nuisance Policy which discourages the use of firearms, fireworks, and/or other similar noise-making devices between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. Council encourages all residents to be mindful and respectful of the people around you when setting off fireworks. Fireworks can be incredibly stressful on parents of small children particularly those with sensitivities to noise; individuals with epilepsy, autism, down syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder and dementia, and their families; and of course, our beloved pets. Please keep this in mind before you set off fireworks at anytime of the day or night.

NOTICE

The Town Office has some Compost Bins available.

The cost to purchase is $25.00.
