Mayor Darryl Walker

“It is a difficult decision to make, to close City buildings to the public. However, the health and safety of our residents and employees is our top concern. We are continuing to offer City services by phone, email and online.

In White Rock, let’s face the challenge of COVID-19 together as a community. Please check in on seniors who live alone, or offer help to a neighbour. Let’s be the friendly and caring community we have always been. Although we are social distancing, let’s get outdoors and remember to reach out to friends and family using the available technology.”
