Note on the Plan:

Sweeping Operations will take several weeks to complete. There is a lot of sand to pick up every year, so we ask residents to remain patient. Weather conditions and mechanical issues play a major role in how quickly Public Works can complete the sweeping operations. Heavy rain and subzero temperatures will halt operations.

Posted No Parking Signs Advising Spring Maintenance:

Public Works would like to remind residents that yellow No Parking Signs will be posted to notify that Spring Maintenance will be taking place for daytime operations. Vehicles not complying with these No Parking signs will be ticketed and towed to allow for Street Sweeping crews to advance.

Priority Sequence for Street Sweeping Operations:

Day Operation:

Street Sweeping is never done in the area where Sanitation is taken place.

High density residential areas (Older Section of City: one-ways, narrow streets);

Low density residential areas

Night Operation:

Highway sections;

High density commercial sections;

Main Arterial Routes

Safety:

A reminder to respect safety signage as the safety of workers is very important.  

We thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

My fellow Timmins Police Officers, past and present, join me in acknowledging fallen officers and pledge to honour their respective memories as we continue to serve the residents of Timmins and area.”

April 24 – 30 is National Volunteer Week in Canada, a time to recognize the impact that our local volunteers have in our community. This year’s theme is “empathy in action”, which highlights how, by volunteering, we are able to more readily share and understand the feelings of others. 

Over the past couple of years, volunteers have been instrumental in ensuring that many of our social service programs, like food delivery, continued during the pandemic. Without dedicated volunteers, many people in our community would have risked hunger, shelter, or experienced limited accessibility. 

“I am humbled to see the passion and commitment of our local volunteers,” says Mayor George Pirie. “Too often they go unrecognized, but they deserve our thanks and appreciation for giving selflessly of their time and energy. When we talk about improving the well-being of our community, it is our volunteers who are taking action to help organizations like The Lord’s Kitchen, the Canadian Red Cross, or the Anti-Hunger Coalition, deliver much needed programs and services. Thank you to every volunteer working today and every day to make Timmins a better place to live.”

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

Friday, April 22 is Earth Day and Timmins Transit is celebrating with free bus rides in the City of Timmins.

This year’s theme for Earth Day is Invest in Our Planet with a rally cry to all Canadians to work together for change. The call for climate action is not a new one. The benefits of choosing public transportation over a private vehicle are well known. On-road transportation in Timmins is responsible for 37.7% of the City’s greenhouse gas emissions as identified in the City’s 2019 Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan. Using public transportation helps lower our emissions and conserve energy and fuel by reducing the number of private vehicles on the road.

But the benefits of public transportation do not stop there.

Did you know:

• Public transit saves money. According to the Canadian Public Health Association, the average household can save $10,000 each year by switching to public transportation.
• Public transit makes our roads safer. Transit operators generally have more driver training, drive at lower speeds, and avoid high-risk driving situations.
• Public transit reduces traffic congestion. This is particularly helpful during busy road construction and maintenance months.
• Public transit improves social equity by providing reliable transportation for all individuals regardless of ability, accessibility, age, or income.
• Public transit increases physical activity. A bus ride often starts and ends with some form of activity (like walking) to and from the bus stop.

But the positive impact on the environment is why on Friday, April 22 you can ride Timmins Transit for free. Help give the environment a break. Every day is Earth Day when you ride the bus!

Leaves and yard waste are acceptable in compostable bags. Clean wood is acceptable in a separate pile from the rest of the Spring Clean Up material.
