The Mayor of Spallumcheen said business in the township continues to be conducted remotely.

Christine Fraser said the township office is available only by appointment due to COVID-19 concerns.

“All departments are providing essential services first with all other support as time permits,” said Fraser.

The public works department will continue to provide all services (all provincial guidelines will apply) and all complaints will be addressed as time permits as there will be limited public interactions. Essential services are addressed first such as water, flooding, road emergencies, property damage, and emergency access.
