Does my cat or dog need a license?

I am building a garage and thinking about doing renovations to my house? Will I require a building permit?
Yes. A building permit application must be completed prior to construction. The Town of Cabri contracts B&D Contract Service for the issuance of building permits. Your application will be forwarded to them and once completed, your building will be inspected. The cost of building permits varies depending on what is being constructed. Please visit the Town Office for additional information in this regard. For your information, the construction of a fence does not require a building permit.
I have a matter that I feel I need to bring to a Council meeting. Can I show up at the meeting to discuss it?
No. Arrangements to attend must be made with the Administrator by the Thursday prior to the Council meeting.
Can I pay my water bill or taxes through internet banking?
Yes. The Town can also set up a pre-authorized payment plan for you for both water and taxes. If this is set up, a set amount will automatically come out of your bank account each month.
Please contact the Town Office for more information.
