Bancroft Business Update & Message

12:00 pm, April 22, 2013


The water level has stabilized. Municipal and Provincial officials are monitoring levels constantly while the state of emergency remains in effect. Town officials will advise you as soon as possible should conditions change.

There has been no need for forced evacuation or immediate alarm however we would ask that you remain vigilant and mindful that flood conditions may continue for some time.

Sand bag pallets have been put in place as a precautionary measure should river levels increase. The decision to sand bag properties in the business core will be determined by Town officials and announced immediately should the need arise.

Normal business operations are encouraged at this time as water levels remain constant and a surge IS NOT anticipated. Town officials will make every effort to communicate important updates to you. Please DO NOT act on rumour.

Mayor Jenkins, Media Release 1400h

At 7:30pm on Saturday April 22 the town of Bancroft declared a state of emergency in relation to higher than normal water levels in town. This enables the head of council to act accordingly and quickly to ensure public safety.

The town emergency control group met yesterday morning and have had ongoing meetings since. Our resources are continuing to monitor the situation and it is expected the water levels will continue to rise for the major part of this week depending on weather conditions.  We are working with various community partners and preparing for any possible situation. If an evacuation is required we have plans in place. Residents who have already left their homes are encouraged to call the town office if they need any assistance.

We are not looking for volunteers at this time however we are keeping a list at the municipal office.

We continue to work with our partners to ensure public safety. The town of Bancroft and its partners greatly appreciates the public’s patience in this matter and will update the community through media outlets, facebook and twitter as this situation continues. For any questions please monitor these outlets or call the town office.
