Subdivision & Development Appeal Board (SDAB)

This board is comprised of 5 members: 2 Council members and 3 Bruderheim residents. No formal training is required, although there is a Training Manual to assist members.

Seniors Snow Removal Assistance Program
The Town of Bruderheim and Family and Community Support Services are seeking volunteers for our Seniors Snow Removal Assistance Program this winter.
This program is very important to those in our community who are unable to clear pathways and driveways of snow, resulting in difficulty safely leaving the home for shopping, medical or social outings.
Throughout the year, the Town of Bruderheim offers more than 10 community events! Volunteer support is critical to the success of these events.
