Public Works Notice March 2019

Street Sweeping has commenced on City roads.

What can residents do to help: 

  • Do not park on residential streets while sweeping is occurring and ensure that garbage and recycling containers are not placed on the street. Roads cannot be cleaned affectively if the sweeper has to go around obstacles. 
  • Do not sweep dirt and gravel onto the road after the sweeper has been by. This creates extra work for City crews and may cause a delay in getting other streets cleaned. 

Water Meter Reading March/April 2019

City of Armstrong employees will be reading water meters starting in late March and continuing into April. Please ensure that access is unobstructed to the water meter touchpad and that animals are not posing a threat to City staff.
