UNITY ‑ The Town of Unity is planning to run the Adopt-a-Block program to look after the litter that has collected over the winter.
If residents would like to get an early start, maps of the block areas will be available at the town office by April 1. Residents can pick up their block maps, return them signed once area is finished and participants will be entered for prizes. The town will provide bags and disposable gloves.
Residents are reminded on behalf of our neighbours to attend to any items that may have collected in yards over the winter. The town bylaw officer will be checking for unsightly yards on behalf of all of Unity residents.
