The Town of Bredenbury is in the process of creating a Fireworks Bylaw. The Bylaw will be sent out once complete.
The main topic will include when and where you are able to set off fireworks in Bredenbury. It will also have provisions for the storing of fireworks and selling of fireworks.
In 2017 is Revaluation for SAMA, this means all residence and commercial buildings will be reassessed. Your new assessments will be mailed out in early spring for you to review.
Assessments overall have gone up significantly based on preliminary values. These new assessments will be based on estimated market values from January 1, 2015. The last assessment date was January 1, 2011.
We all know that market value has increased in Bredenbury dramatically throughout this time. Council will be reviewing the mill rate to reflect these changes.

With new members we hope to purchase a few more things for our gym. If you have a suggestion of equipment to purchase with the space available please call the town office and let us know.
Would anyone be interested in a training workshop? These workshops will be specifically designed for people who want to get into the gym but do not know how to work out in a safe and effective way.
Workshops would be on Saturday mornings for 6 weeks and will cover the following topics: Mobility, Muscle awareness, & Cardio training-how to warm up and stretch properly to ensure your muscles are able to perform.
Developing a workout plan & routine-you will learn what is the best kind of plan for YOU and the schedule you have and feel confident about getting to the gym. There would be a charge for this workshop.
Also in the fall we have received a grant to host a free exercise program for 6 weeks, it likely would also be a Saturday. Participation will be mandatory if you sign up; because we need enough numbers. It is planned to be a family event where all ages can attend and exercise.
If you are interested in either of these events in the fall please call the town office and get on a sign up list.
