  • This morning you thinking, when will the City plow my street.....πŸ€”
So when the snowfall stops, (the Weather Networks says around 9 a.m.) we will start plowing with Priority 1 streets and highways first. ❄️
Check out the map to see where your street is on the list - Kenora.ca in Winter Maintenance. ❄️
Priority 1 – roads to be cleared first within the first 36 hours after a snowfall event.  These roads or streets have the highest traffic flow and access business areas and the hospital, as well as the main routes for emergency vehicles and buses.
Priority 2 - roads to be cleared second within the first 36 hours after a snowfall event, which are main routes through residential areas.
Priority 3 - roads to be cleared within the first 72 hours after a snowfall event, which are secondary roads and other residential areas. ❄️ #cityofkenora #snowfall #wintermaintenance

  • At the end of the 2018 summer season when Coney Island residents were closing up their cottages, the City of Kenora began a project to replace the Coney Island Beach Park boardwalk. As of last month, this project was completed !!! Thank you to Dorsey Contracting Inc., Hristov Architet Inc. (design), and Cornerstone Timberframes (woods) for maintaining the historic structural features.  The new boardwalk looks renewed, durable, and solid!
Families have gathered and relaxed under the covered boardwalk since the 1920s, maybe even earlier (see the last photo). This unique feature is treasured by many generations of Coney Island and Kenora residents who spend their summer at the Coney Island Beach Park, relaxing under the cover from the weather and beach activities.  Now a brand new covered boardwalk awaits the return of summer and Coney Island residents! πŸ’²
The cost of this project was included in the City of Kenora 2018 capital budget; $115,000 funded by taxpayer dollars.

  • We had an extensive number of applicants who were interested in serving on a committee or board. We are grateful for the passion of our citizens and appreciate the awesome response.
At the Inaugural Meeting on Saturday, Mayor and Council appointed new members to each of the committees and boards. Many are anxious to find out if they have been appointed. Just know, we are working to notify all candidates either way. You will hear from us very soon!
