It’s World Bee Day and Bee City Timmins is reminding residents that our pollinators need protection. Bees and other pollinators like butterflies, moths, beetles, and wasps provide a fundamental role in protecting the earth’s ecosystems. Without them, a large percentage of our natural food source would disappear.

That’s why Bee City Timmins works year-round to promote the importance of our pollinators. Timmins’ status as a Bee City requires three commitments: Educate the public on pollinators; help create pollinator-friendly habitats; and, celebrate pollinators at events like Pollinator Week in June.

This year, Bee City Timmins will kick-off Pollinator Week on Sunday, June 19th at Gilles Lake. Residents can learn more about how Bee City Timmins is working to protect our pollinators. Event details are online at Timmins.ca.

“We’re inviting the community to come see why being a Bee City is important,” says Environmental Coordinator Christina Beaton. “Residents can make seed balls and pick up a seed bookmark to help create their own pollinator-friendly garden. A number of our community partners will also be on-hand to share how they’re working to help with promote, celebrate and create pollinator-friendly habitats across our community.”

Bee City Timmins is also working with Timmins Horticultural Society to update the garden space at the top of Lakeshore Rd. off Gilles Lake. Bee City Timmins will be transforming more municipal plots into pollinator-friendly habitats that will improve and promote sustainability across our community.

“Pollinator-friendly plants are hearty and beautiful for anyone’s garden,” adds Beaton. “It’s a great way to give our pollinators a fighting chance. The bees will love it!”

Detour plans are now in place for the next phase of Connecting Link construction. This year, motorists will have two options to divert safely around the work area.

Segment 6 of construction will see improvements along Algonquin Blvd. West from Theriault Blvd. to Mountjoy St. This is the second downtown segment and once again includes full-depth reconstruction of the roadway, replacement of underground services like water, sanitary sewer and storm sewer, and pole relocation.

At the start of construction, access to the Mountjoy St. intersection will be maintained. Two detour routes will be available extending north and south from Algonquin Blvd. W. Vehicles and cyclists can bypass construction heading north along Theriault Blvd. to Vimy Ave. proceeding to Mountjoy St. N. The southern detour route runs from Cameron St. S. to Commercial Ave. proceeding to Mountjoy St. S.

“In this segment of the Connecting Link construction, we are not hampered by the Mattagami River,” says Project Coordinator Eryk Rice. “With two detour options, the result will be less traffic congestion.”

To help maintain traffic flow, a temporary 4-way stop will be added at the intersection of Theriault Blvd. and Vimy Ave. and a temporary 3-way stop will be added at the intersection of Vimy Ave. and Mountjoy St. N. Temporary traffic lights will be installed along the southerly route on Cameron St. S. at Wilson Ave. and Commercial Ave. and on Commercial Ave. at Mountjoy S. Motorists should allow for some delay and be prepared to stop once signage is in place.

Commercial motor vehicles will be using the familiar truck detour along Shirley St. to Lafleur Dr. and onto Laforest Rd. before reaching Hwy. 655. Council has approved a temporary speed limit reduction along the truck detour on Airport Rd. The posted speed will be 50 km/h from Laforest Rd. through the area of the Kraft Creek Bridge.

We can also confirm that residents will have access to all businesses located in this section of Algonquin Blvd. W.,” adds Rice. “Most businesses have entry through a secondary road like Rea St. N. or Preston St. There are a handful of businesses that will be provided with temporary access from a neighboring property off of Rea St. N. This will be maintained by the contactor and signage will be in place directing traffic.”

The City of Timmins Environmental Services Department, Waste Management Division has been working fast to address on-going delays in waste and recycling collection. Trouble started the end of April when mechanical issues began to plague waste collection trucks. With three garbage trucks beyond end of life, keeping these vehicles on the road has become a challenge.

The issue lies in the delay of two collection trucks purchased by the City in 2020 that are currently on back order. The primary reason given for the delay is supply chain issues resulting from the pandemic, but that reason does little to mitigate current concerns.

“We are looking at rental options for collection trucks and relying heavily on contractors to complete waste and recycling schedules,” says Scott Tam Manager of Environmental Services. “It really has been a perfect storm with limited heavy-duty mechanics available to work on our trucks while we wait for our two new vehicles to arrive. As of right now, we do not have a date of delivery.”

The City has been quick to post a notice of disruption online when delays or postponement are unavoidable, but Service Timmins has seen an increase in resident calls.

“Our staff have been addressing concerns about garbage pick-up, primarily with how late collection is occurring,” says Jennifer Chilton Manager of Service Timmins. “It’s spring and we have seen an increase in bear activity. People want to secure their bins. We are in constant contact with Waste Management to stay up-to-date on collection times and areas experiencing delays.”

The City is currently subsidizing operations with contracted support and there will continue to be minor delays while new contractors are added to rotation. As per City By-Law 2017-7977, if garbage and recycling has not been collected by 8:00 p.m. on collection day, the schedule will be postponed until the next day and bins should be removed from the roadway to a secure location.

The City will post notice of delays or postponement with affected areas online under our News and Alerts section on Timmins.ca. Residents can sign up to receive notice of disruptions via email or download the Timmins Recyclepedia app from the Google Play or App store for collection reminders.
