Effective March 30th, the Province has extended the Emergency Declaration, and has ordered that all outdoor amenities be closed. As such, our parks, playgrounds, picnic pavilion areas, ballparks, tennis courts and dive sites are now closed. Our indoor facilities were closed as of March 17th, including the Spencerville Arena, Ingredion Centre, Johnstown Community Centre and the Upstairs Community Room in our Townhall. We will continue to monitor information from the province and health care professionals to determine when our recreation facilities will reopen.

ALL municipalities within the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville have implemented a TOTAL OPEN-AIR BURN BAN effective Wednesday March 25th at 11:59pm until further notice. The ban applies to all open-air fires including agricultural burns, brush piles, burn barrels, campfires, chimeneas, cooking fires, consumer fireworks, incinerators and other types of outdoor burning. Due to the concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19, the need for social distancing and to assist in the health, safety and well-being of our firefighters we placed an open-air burn ban as a precautionary measure to avoid any additional strain on our fire services at this time. We are committed to providing and maintaining emergency response within our communities and we appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we cope with this uncertain and unprecedented situation.


Effective March 19th, our municipal office will be open to the public by appointment only. Please phone or email our office before visiting. Township staff will do their best to help you remotely, or schedule an appointment if necessary. We’d like to assure our residents that our office remains staffed and operational to provide service and assistance.
