The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay informs the public that due to the current and expected weather conditions throughout today the EJ Broomfield Memorial Arena will remain CLOSED until 3:00 PM.
A further update will be provided this afternoon on the potential impact on the remainder of the arena’s scheduled activities.

In an ongoing effort, Public Works Road Crews are continuing to carry out snow clearing activities on municipal streets. The Town encourages motorists to not go out unless absolutely necessary and if you do to drive with caution and adjust your driving with the current conditions.
Motorists are also reminded that the On-Street Parking Ban is in effect until April 30, 2022. Please do not park on the side of any municipal street at any time, especially during conditions we are currently facing.
The Municipal Enforcement Department is reminding residents and businesses of the Town’s Municipal Snow Clearing Regulations sections 16, 17 & 18, which states:
SNOW CLEARING SECTION

- At any time during a snow storm and for twelve (12) hours thereafter, no person shall park an unattended vehicle on any street within the Town.
(a) No person shall deposit, throw, sweep or place any accumulation of snow or ice on any street, sidewalk or public parking lot within the limits of the Town, providing
that this regulation shall not apply to employees or contractors of council while engaged in snow clearing operations.
- Any unattended vehicle parked on any street within the Town in contravention of these regulations may be removed and impounded by the Council and the cost of such removal and impounding may be recovered from the owner as a civil debt prior to the vehicle being returned to the owner.
