Town of Sidney Council Meeting Highlights: September 11, 2023
Highlights from regular Council meetings provide a brief summary of some items of broad public interest. The summary is not inclusive of all agenda items. Please refer to www.www.sidney.ca for the full agenda, minutes, and webcast.
Rehabilitation of Bevan Fishing Pier planned for 2023
Council directed staff to proceed with the rehabilitation of Bevan Fishing Pier by undertaking a pile wrapping project. Following a competitive process, Heavy Metal Marine Ltd has been selected to complete this preventative maintenance work. The estimated rehabilitation cost of $550,000 is being funded by the Canada Community Building Fund. Work is expected to begin this fall, and be completed by the end of the year.
The Bevan Fishing Pier may be closed to the public for short time periods while the work is underway to ensure safety. These closures will be communicated to the public as they occur.
Council approves new corporate logo for Town of Sidney
Following a public engagement process over the summer, the Town will be adopting a new corporate logo design this fall featuring Bevan Fishing Pier. The logo was redesigned to be more visually accessible, distinct, and suitable for local government. It will appear on items such as the Town Talk newsletter, website, news releases, and other corporate communications tools. Welcome signs in the community will remain unchanged, as they are each unique and do not feature the Town’s corporate logo.
