Test results show no blue-green algae at Reservoir Park

Blue-Green Algae Update – Reservoir Park: 

Samples from Reservoir Park that were tested at Dalhousie University found no detections of blue-green algae.  

With these results, the caution signs have been removed from the pond.

Reservoir Park - suspected presence of blue-green algae

Users of Reservoir Park in the Town of Wolfville should be aware of the suspected presence of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) in the large pond.

Additional testing is underway to confirm the visual signs from initial sampling.

The park remains open but it is safest for people and pets not to enter the larger pond until the further test results are available.

Cancellation Notice - "Welcome to Wolfville" Student Event

With the announcements today confirming that we are in a fourth wave and that we will not be moving to Phase 5, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Cittaslow event that was planned to welcome students on Sunday September 19th at Robie Tufts Park.

The Town hopes to re-schedule at a future date when it will be less risky to gather so that we can celebrate, once again, as a connected community. label cittaslow

Town rolls out workplace COVID-19 screening program

To prepare for Phase 5 of Nova Scotia’s reopening plan, the Council for the Town of Wolfville has passed COVID-19 Workplace Safety Policy 130-028. This policy was developed to protect workers, Municipal volunteers, and the community from the threat of COVID-19, mandating twice weekly rapid testing in the workplace and adding the continued requirement of masking at any time social distancing can not be achieved.

The new policy covers Town staff, volunteers, committee members and members of Council. Exemption from the Policy is permitted with proof of full vaccination (have both injections of one of the recognized vaccines and be 14 days past the second dose) but the Town will still encourage all staff, volunteers, committee members and members of Council, regardless of vaccination status, to remain masked and participate in COVID-19 rapid testing as offered in the workplace.

“The Town of Wolfville is committed to providing a work environment that keeps our employees and the community safe,” said Mayor Wendy Donovan. “That commitment means that we must maintain a workplace free of hazards to health such as COVID-19. It is critical that, as an organization, we take reasonable precautions to protect against exposure to COVID-19.” 

The Town’s requirements are separate and in addition to any requirements that the Province of Nova Scotia might impose. Workplace screening launches later this week. 

This policy does not apply to members of the public.

Gifted boxcar tracks creative space to Wolfville Memorial Library

With the Wolfville Memorial Library operating from a former train station, the idea of building on the locomotive theme made perfect sense when a retired boxcar was offered as a gift to the Town of Wolfville.

Months after the offer was made, a curious crowd gathered as the hefty boxcar was gently lowered by crane onto the orphaned tracks behind the Library on August 25.

Director of Parks and Recreation, Kelton Thomason, worked with multiple partners to coordinate the special delivery that saw a train return to the small stretch of tracks for the first time since the 1990s.

“Everything went smoothly today and now Wolfville has a great new space to inspire creativity,” Thomason said. “It’s a pleasure to share this space with the library.”

Over the months ahead, a performance stage will be built on the boxcar, and the interior will be refreshed. Plans for the exterior panels will be determined by the Wolfville Art in Public Spaces Committee. Short term plans for the newly installed piece of railroad history include storage for the library’s e-bike fleet.
