Spring recreation programs have been cancelled and gardening services have been cut back in the City of White Rock as part of efforts to ensure physical distancing and help manage costs.
Participants who had registered for any city recreation programs for the spring season – ending June 30 – will receive a credit or can contact email@example.com to request a refund.
Additionally, gardening work usually done by a contractor on city property, including the planting of flowerpots and flowerbeds and hedge-trimming, will be reduced or cancelled.
“The City has looked at the bigger picture for White Rock and decided that there are some things we will have to do without this year to ensure that we stay physically separated, and that we follow the orders of our Provincial Health Officer,” said White Rock Mayor Darryl Walker
“We have also made the decision to trim some of our gardening budget. This will affect the flower containers on the waterfront, hedge trimming on some City properties and the planting of some flowerbeds.
White Rock still has many beautiful plants and flowers, already in bloom, for everyone to enjoy.”
