Parc Hardy to get new playground equipment

A 15-year-old set of playground equipment at the city’s flagship park, is to be replaced.
At the May 12 council meeting, Mayor Ricky Calais received approval to move forward with preparations to replace the larger of the Parc Hardy’s two sets of equipment. “That equipment has cracked plastic parts and other problems,” he said, “I don’t think it will be worth hiring a contractor to repair it any further at this point.”

SM utility customers will have to pay up

Utility customers whose bills are in arrears will have to settle up or make arrangements by the end of May or face disconnections.
At the May 18 council meeting, members approved putting an end to the moratorium on disconnects instituted two months ago as the COVID-19 crisis developed. Delinquent account holders will now be expected to appeal directly to the city and set up a payment plan. Those who fail to pay or appear for a case-by-case review will have service disconnected and their account assessed the usual reconnect charge of $50.
