Translation – Explanation and Caution

The electronic translation service on the City of Surrey’s web site is hosted by Google Translate. The quality of the translation may vary in some of the languages offered by Google. The goal of the basic translation is to capture the general intention of the original English material.

Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 50 languages. Unfortunately, not all the languages spoken in the City of Surrey are translated. Punjabi is one of the languages not currently offered, and to remedy the situation, the City has been in contact with Google and they have committed to making Punjabi available in the future.

The City of Surrey cannot guarantee the quality, accuracy, or completeness of any translated information. Before you act on translated information, the City encourages you to confirm any facts that are important to you and the decisions you make.

How Long Does My Donation Last?

When you donate a bench or another kind of manufactured asset, Parks Division staff makes a commitment to maintain that donation for ten years. Trees are maintained for their natural lifetime, but the plaque installed beside your tree is maintained for ten years. After this time, the plaque and the donation may be relocated or removed at the discretion of the Parks Division.

During this time, the Parks Division staff maintains and repairs your donation with the same frequency and methods as all other park features of that type. Occasionally there may be a need to relocate a donation if there are frequent repairs needed, or if the park area is undergoing new development. If this is the case, the Parks Division undertakes the relocation and covers all of the costs. If, at a later date, you wish to have your donation moved to another location but Parks Division has not identified this as a need, you will be responsible for the costs.

After the end of a maintenance term, the plaque on a donation is removed and if possible, given to the donor to keep. If you would like to renew your donation for another term, contact the Community Development Coordinator to discuss your options. These may include keeping the original plaque on your original donation, creating a new plaque on the original donation or a different feature, or installing a whole new feature.
