White Rock city services are up and running after deal reached

WHITE ROCK – With the White Rock civic worker strike now over and all back in action, the city is asking residents to be patient as full services are reintroduced.

With employees back at work as of June 3, all city buildings shut down for the strike are now open. Those buildings are the White Rock Community Centre, Centennial Arena, the Kent Street Activity Centre and the operations and engineering facilities.

For waste pick up, residents will be permitted to put out extra garbage, recycling and green waste on their regularly scheduled day for the next two weeks. Overflow waste will not require tags during this period.

Commercial recycling will resume next week. Finally, leisure classes, programs and events are all back up and running. Facility rentals are being honoured and anyone wishing to may make new bookings.

Any classes affected by the job action will be credited to the user’s account and refunds are available by contacting leisure services.

For more information on the resumption of services, go to whiterockcity.ca.
