Parking During Snow Events

City of Armstrong residents are reminded that parking on residential streets during a snowfall event is not permitted. Only after snowplowing, sanding and de-icing activities are completed can allowable on-street parking resume.

First violations will be subject to a warning notice; repeat violations may be subject to your vehicle being towed at your expense or a fine of $100.00.

Residents are reminded that pushing snow from your driveway onto the street is not permitted. Residents are also responsible to remove snow and ice from building roof sections or awnings that are adjacent to a street or sidewalk and pose a hazard to the public.

Thank you for your cooperation this winter. 

Placement of Garbage and Recycling Containers Residents are reminded to place their garbage and recycling containers off the sidewalk and roadway, allowing the sidewalk and roadway to be cleared of snow. Contractors will also be reminded to keep the roads and sidewalks clear of receptacles. 

New Building Inspection Service

Effective December 21, 2015, the City of Armstrong will be accepting all building inquiries directly and building permits will be issued by the City.  New application forms and information sheets are available for download.

Final Mock Water Invoices Mailed

This mock water bill covers the consumption period of April, 2015 to September, 2015. It reflects actual water consumption and what the metered charges would be if consumption-based billing were in effect. Please do not pay the amount shown. (Actual water charges were billed on the 2015 property tax notices for the period of January 1 - September 30, 2015.)

This is the last mock bill issued by the City.

Water consumption between October, 2015 and March 2016 will be billed in late April or early May of 2016. This will be the first real bill. Billing will continue every six months thereafter.

Residential sewer and garbage charges will continue to be billed on a flat-rate annual basis on your property tax notice.

If you have any questions, please contact the City of Armstrong at 250-546-3023 or

Any outstanding current taxes as of January 1, 2016 will be transferred to taxes in arrears and start collecting interest daily.

2014 Annual Report

2014 Annual Report Including Financial Statements


Intense storms can cause localized drainage and flooding issues. To help prevent possible drainage and flooding problems, residents should ensure all catch basin drains and culverts on or near their properties are kept clean of debris at all times. It is very common for drains to become plugged during storm events.

Sand and sand bags are available 24/7 at the lot adjacent the Public Works Yard on Patterson Avenue.
