The Memorial Bench Program ended in 2013 and was replaced with the Tribute Plaque Program. In May 2013, guidelines were implemented to retire memorial benches and remove them.
Memorial Bench Conclusion Guidelines
- The municipality will maintain all memorial benches until they are retired.
- Memorial benches will be retired 15 years from the installation date.
- The bench and plaque are provided to the donor once removed. The plaque can be removed from the bench and send by mail to the donor, or can remain intact on the bench for the donor to pick up.
- The option to install a new Tribute Plaque is available at the original site of the bench.
