April 18 – 24 is National Volunteer Week, a time to celebrate, recognize, and thank our community volunteers. This year’s theme is ‘The Value of One, The Power of Many’ and it truly resonates with where the City of Timmins is now and how we envision our future.

During National Volunteer Week, we are asked to reflect on the acts of kindness by our volunteers and the power of what we can accomplish when we work together for a common goal. Volunteers in our community help many of our social service programs function. Whether it’s advocating for food-security or volunteering for initiatives that engage our youth, volunteers are the passion and the power that make it possible.

“There is no doubt that volunteers in our city work tirelessly, day after day and week after week,” says Mayor George Pirie. “I have had the pleasure of meeting volunteers from organizations like The Lord’s Kitchen, Living Space, and the Canadian Red Cross who are dedicated to this community: To making Timmins a better place to live. I know there are many more organizations who rely on volunteers and I am so very grateful for the time and commitment residents in our city are willing to provide.”

As Timmins moves forward with our first ‘Community Safety and Well-Being Plan’, there will be more opportunity for residents to get involved and give back. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, Timmins.Care can help connect you to a service agency looking for help. Learn more about our ‘Community Safety and Well-Being Plan’ and how you can get involved online at Timmins.ca.

This week, consider thanking a volunteer you know. #VolunteersBringChange.

With many downtown businesses relying on sales from curbside pickup, the City of Timmins wants to make it even easier to shop local without having to look for loose change.

Effective immediately, you can park at a downtown meter and turn on your four-way flashers while retrieving an order using curbside pickup.

“We’ve come up with a solution that will hopefully encourage more people to shop local and use the option of curbside pickup to support our downtown businesses,” says Sherry Laneville, Supervisor of Enforcement Services. “Turn on your four-way flashers to indicate that you’re picking up an order, which typically takes only a few minutes.”

Parking Control will be monitoring and ticketing anyone who is taking advantage of the arrangement in order to allow more people to make use of the opportunity.

The City of Timmins Environmental Services department wishes to advise the public of a watermain break effecting the water supply to the residents on Smith St in South Porcupine

  • Area: Smith Ave from Summers Ave to Tisdale St

  • Time of Disruption: April 14, 2021

Homeowners and businesses in the area will experience loss of water supply and or experience brown or rust-coloured water. It is recommended not to drink or wash laundry with the discoloured water. While it is not harmful to your health, it can stain laundry. Should this occur, it is advised to turn off your tap for 10-20 minutes in order to allow the crew to complete the work. Once the repairs are complete and the work crew has left the area, turn on the COLD water tap closest to the source (usually your laundry tub tap) and let it run for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the water colour has returned to normal.

City staff would like to thank residents for their patience and cooperation during this necessary process, and advise that if there are any questions, concerns or requests for additional information, they may contact the Service Timmins at 705-264-1331. After-hours emergencies should be directed to 705-264-1201.

At the April 6 council meeting, City Council approved a 10-year financial plan for water and wastewater services that will see an approximate 5% increase to your water and wastewater bill year-over-year starting this year.

The long-term financial plan is required for the City’s licensing under the Safe Drinking Water Act, 2002 with the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks. The benefit of a long-term financial plan for water and waste water is that it provides a framework for the City to prioritize infrastructure upgrades, maintenance, and improved services.

The City of Timmins currently provides potable water to approximately 14,000 households through the Timmins Water Filtration Plant. Approximately 13,600 residents are provided with wastewater treatment services. In total, the City manages 546 km of linear piping for water, wastewater, and sewer. 92% of water and wastewater customers are invoiced on a semi-annual basis with rates based on the number of rooms in your home.

To mitigate some of the impacts of the rates, City Council previously approved a “Low Income Utility Assistance Credit” to provide relief for low income households for the water and wastewater bill. Eligible homeowners can see a $50 credit applied to their utility account.

The full long-term financial plan for water and wastewater is now available to view on the City of Timmins website under Our Services > Water and Sewer. The application form for the Low Income Utility Assistance Credit is also available online at Timmins.ca

With the province-wide stay-at-home order now in effect, the City of Timmins would like to remind residents that holding or attending a yard sale is not permitted under provincial guidelines.

Residents are currently asked to stay at home and only go out for necessities such as grocery and pharmacy items and health care services.

“We are anticipating that yard sales will be allowed once the stay-at-home order has been removed,” says City Clerk Steph Palmateer. “Safety measures such as mandatory masks and social distancing will have to be maintained.”

The City of Timmins is committed to protecting public safety through our Enforcement Services Department. Our Municipal By-law Enforcement Officers will be monitoring reports of yard sale activity as we continue to navigate Ontario’s stay-at-home order.
