Published: Monday, May 2, 2022 @ 3:30 p.m.

The Town of Grand Bay-Westfield annual street sweeping program is underway. This program will run from Monday, May 2 and continue until approximately Friday, May 6, 2022.

Residents are advised of the following:

All hard-surfaced municipal streets will be completed;
The contractor will be working evenings;
The contractor will not be working on Sundays;
The contractor will on occasion leave a street to dump sand, however, they will return to complete the street; and
The contractor is responsible to provide dust control while operating street sweeping equipment.

How residents can assist:

Please do not sweep road sand into piles and leave piles on the road as they create a dangerous hazard to motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists;
Please do not park on the roadway when street sweeping is in progress. If a parked vehicle impedes the street sweeper, the vehicle may be towed away at the owner’s expense;
Please try not to place garbage bags on the paved roadway on collection days, as it will impede street sweeping;
Please do not sweep sand into ditches as it contributes to water drainage problems; and
If you believe the work completed on your street is not satisfactory, please contact the Town’s Works Department at 738-6422. Leave a message with details regarding your street. Your street will then be inspected and re-swept, if the contractor’s work is not satisfactory to the Town.
