After Hours Reporting Service

Staff and Council feel that it is important that you as a resident have some way of contacting the Municipality after hours, on weekends and holidays in case:

- a storm hits and a road is washed out
- beavers are busy at work and cause damage to a Township road
- a tree falls across a Township road
- something happens in the Township that cannot wait until the next business day

This number is not intended for general inquiries. This is not an emergency number. In case of an emergency, dial 9-1-1.

The after hours service is not for: reporting stray dogs or cats, inquiries regarding burn permits, taxes, waste sites or to advise that your road needs grading, etc.

This number is for urgent issues that cannot wait until the next business day!
