It’s slow going at the city’s community services department, with wet conditions putting a damper on things.

“It’s been challenging,” director Jody Boulet said.

“The wet conditions really have slowed down a lot of our outdoor work, and in a lot of cases we’ve barely got started, which is really unfortunate being July 2 already.”

Wet fields and facilities have delayed crews’ ability to do various things, including mowing grass. The saturated ground makes it impossible to get equipment on site to mow grass without creating a mucky mess.

The waiting game is currently being employed until things dry up -- something Boulet hopes to see happen soon.

“It’s surprising how, when we get warm, dry weather, how quickly things will turn around.”

Given a week’s worth of dry conditions, crews should be able to get parks in tip-top shape. Aside from some rainfall on Wednesday and a couple days with light rain, the long-range forecast predicts relatively dry conditions over the next couple weeks.
