Due to recent developments/announcements at the Provincial and Federal levels, we are hoping to hold this Special Meeting (scheduled for March 19) virtually. Hopefully, we will receive authority from Municipal Affairs to meet this way, in this ever-evolving situation! Please watch this page for notice of changes as they become available
The Public Land Use Meeting has been canceled for March 18, 2020.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the public will have reduced access to the Town of Stewiacke’s Administrative Office at 295 George Street effective immediately. We are taking this measure to protect and minimize exposure to Town staff who maintain the essential services to our Town. We are making decisions in the best interest of the health of our residents. Our employees will continue to serve the community remotely or by appointment, to provide residents with the most up to date information, tools and resources during this time of uncertainty.
The Town of Stewiacke reassures our residents that we are developing a response plan for the COVID-19 pandemic. We are monitoring the situation daily. At this time, there are no other changes to town operations and services. But our staff are ready in the event changes are required to be made.
I can assure you the health and safety of our town is always my top priority. I ask everyone for their patience and understanding during this very uncertain time. Stewiacke is an awesome community and we look after each other.
There are no reports cases of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia at this time. Nova Scotia’s health care system is actively monitoring and detecting potential cases of novel coronavirus.
We have decided to cancel all Stewiacke March Break children’s activities next week as a preventative and precautionary measure. We need to ensure everyone that we are all taking the necessary precautions as we normally would be for a flu season.
Residents are encouraged to have enough supplies for 72 hours in the event of an emergency. The best information can be found at www.novascotia.ca/coronavirus.
If you require any advice or information, the Nova Scotia Health Authority has established COVID-19 assessment centres. Please contact 811 for advice. Practicing good hygiene remains the best defense against illness. Please check this site regularly as information will be updated regularly.
Thank you, Mayor Wendy RobinsonTown of Stewiacke
It is with deep sadness that the Town of Stewiacke announces the death of longtime Councillor Russel Stoddart. Russel passed away this morning in Halifax. He has contributed significantly to the Town of Stewiacke and will be greatly missed. The flags in the Town of Stewiacke will be flown at half-mast until the completion of the funeral service in respect Russel’s contribution to our community. May our friendship and prayers ease the family of Councillor Stoddart through this very difficult time.
Mayor Wendy Robinson
Town of Stewiacke
