Waterline update

July 17, 2024


Please Note:
Further to our July 3 Post, we are trying to keep the water on at the splash pad for as long as possible instead of shutting it off for the entire time work is being done on the water lines.  As a result, the water may be shut off without prior notice, if a line is hit or something unforeseen happens. Thank you for your patience.



Bethune Childcare Updates

July 3, 2024


Last week, the Bethune Childcare Board made the exciting announcement that work will begin this week on the site adjacent to McLean Park.

The Village of Bethune Budget for 2024 includes the capital cost of approximately $140,000 to extend the sewer lines as well as the water lines to the property line of the Bethune Childcare Center.  This work also includes relocating the line to the spray park.

PLEASE NOTE:  As a result of the above noted work, as well as work on the facility, please be cautious in the area of the park and ball diamonds.  Also, watch the Village website and Facebook page for notices where we will have to shut the water off at the spray park for various periods of time.

CAPTION:

As community members may have noticed, the population of stray and feral cats in our village has increasingly grown. In an effort to take care of these cat colonies, we are partnering with Lumsden Valley Cats. 

With their help, the stray and feral cats will be caught, neutered/spayed and then released back to Bethune. This process is called TNR (trap, neuter/spay, release) and it is the most effective way to humanely control growing cat populations. They will also be catching, fostering and rehoming any stray kittens that are found in our village. Catching and spaying/neutering the cats helps to stop the breeding cycles—and sadly for cat colonies in small communities, inbreeding is an unfortunate reality. Releasing them back to our village allows them to continue their very important role in rodent control without the added risk of them continuing to breed.

Disposing of the cats or trapping and relocating them is not only inhumane, but also ineffective as new cats will move into the empty territories and create new colonies. We would also like to remind our community that the trapping of cats or other animals within the village limits is strictly prohibited unless authorized by the Village of Bethune Council. 

For Bethune’s TNR Program to be successful, Lumsden Valley Cats desperately needs your support and cooperation. If you see any kittens or pregnant and/or nursing cats, please contact them via their Facebook page or email at LumsdenValleyCats@gmail.com. We, as your village council, encourage you to contact them with any information about feral cats and cat colonies near your home and to please help them with their mission.

**If you would like to help with trapping, fundraising, fostering or to donate to the Bethune Project, please email them or send e-transfers to LumsdenValleyCats@gmail.com (Memo: Bethune Project)**.
