Weed & Pest Inspection (WAPI)

The weed and pest inspection crew are assigned to work in the Non-Forestry and Forestry zones within the County to inspect and monitor weed and  pest infestations and communicate with residents about their findings.
The vegetation crew ensure that the County's vegetation is maintained which includes pest and weed control, road side mowing and brushing, road side seeding and ditch clean up.


Public Area Maintenance Services (PAMS)

The parks and public area maintenance crew maintain public areas all year round.  During the winter season they ensure that all trails are kept clear of snow and ice by plowing,  removal of snow and sanding walking trails & recreation facilities.  During the spring and summer season the crew keep trails clean and manicured for the public's enjoyment.

Labourers Assigned Diverse Duties (LADD)

The labourer crew assist all other crews where needed as well and assist with tent set up and tear down for functions in the County.
