Town of Amherst

• At this point we are simply not calculating interest in March on outstanding accounts.

• All Town facilities, including Town Hall, the Fire Hall, the Public Works Garage, the Amherst Stadium, the Community Credit Union Business Innovation Centre, and the front reception of the Police Department, are closed to the public and any staff that can work remotely are doing so.

• At the present time, Town staff will not be entering residential or commercial premises except in cases of emergency or an urgent service need.

• For the time being, we are staffing our main reception telephone line at 902-667-3352. Requests for service will be addressed on a priority and capacity basis considering the safety of the public and Town staff.

Our Active Transportation Trails remain open, including the trail that starts at the corner of Willow and East Pleasant streets, continues along Willow St to Robert Angus Drive and then to South Albion Street.

In addition, the trail between Donald Avenue and Willow Street remains open as does the Marsh Trail from Derby Street to Brownell Ave.
