Galloping Goose closure and census forms

  • May. 18, 2011 12:00 p.m.

Temporary closure advisory

The public is advised that the Todd Creek Trestle is closed weekdays from May 16 to 30, 2011, between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. for maintenance assessment. The trestle is open to the public on evenings and weekends. Please use caution crossing the temporary ramp during this period.

Todd Creek Trestle is located near kilometre 47 on the Galloping Goose Regional Trail above Sooke Potholes Regional Park in the District of Sooke.

CRD Regional Parks appreciates the public’s cooperation during this regular maintenance assessment.

 

Census forms

Mayor Janet Evans advises that the 2011 Census forms are now out and are mandatory for everyone to complete.  These forms are very important to the District of Sooke and the information that is provided in the Census determines the amount of monies that are transferred to the local municipalities.

They are called transfer payments and the amount is based on total population.

These payments are used in our municipal government to provide police, fire and emergency services, road maintenance, development services, parks, trails and recreation, and many other services.

“Please make sure you provide accurate information because that population figure is with us for five years,” said Mayor Evans in a news release.
