Annex Location Now Closed
We’ve moved! Town staff are no longer located in the Annex facility (located across the street from the Civic Centre). As part of the Town’s Space Needs Analysis, this move was identified as an opportunity to move staff to other Town facilities and further develop the Town’s hybrid work model. This move will help the organization save money and create efficiencies.
