COVID-19: "This is not a drill." ~ NB Premier Blaine Higgs (Mar. 20, 2020)

The Municipality of the Village of Salisbury strongly urges residents and businesses in the community to abide by the directives issued by the Province of New Brunswick and its Chief Medical Officer of Health with regards to efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus. It is only by working together that we, not only just as a community but as a nation, will succeed in "flattening the curve" and keep the number of cases as low as possible during this pandemic. We must practice social distancing and refrain from gathering in groups of over 10 people. The Village wishes to thank those who are doing their part by staying home whenever possible and, thus, helping to protect others. Keep up the good work!

CLOSED (Mar. 17, 2020 until further notice)

Following the most recent advice and recommendations from the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health (New Brunswick Public Health) of March 16th, the Municipality of the Village of Salisbury has made the decision to close the Village Office, Works Office, and Parks & Leisure Office to the public until further notice.
 
You can still reach us by phone at 372-3230 or by email us at vilsalisbury@nb.aibn.com. Sewer payments can be made by cheque and placed in the drop slot next to the front door, or can be sent by mail, or paid through online banking with CIBC or Credit Union, as well as through Service New Brunswick online.

Bleakney Road (post Hurricane/Tropical Storm Dorian)

UPDATE (Sept. 8, 2019, 2:00pm): Bleakney Road is now passable and open to traffic once again. Your patience and understanding during the repair process has been much appreciated.

ORIGINAL POST:
For residents of Salisbury: Bleakney Road will be repaired following a storm Dorian-related collapse/washout at the McNaughton Brook culvert. The Salisbury Works Department and Salisbury Fire Rescue were called to the scene Sunday morning. It is hoped that Bleakney Road will become passable again by Sunday afternoon. Until that is the case, the Albert Trail (via Lam) has been opened for access so residents of the subdivision can get in and out during the repair process (west to Fredericton Road being the more suitable of the two directions on the trail). Drivers are asked to exercise caution as Albert Trail is not traffic-controlled and is primarily one-way traffic.
