Note on the Plan:

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.

Through a collaborative partnership with the City of Timmins and Timmins and District Hospital (TADH), we are pleased to announce the appointment of Lia Fontana to the position of Administrator of the Golden Manor. Current Administrator Carol Halt announced her upcoming retirement late last year, with her final day slated for June 30, 2022. Lia will assume her new responsibilities effective June 13th, 2022 as part of an employee agreement between TADH and the City of Timmins.

 With over 30 years’ experience in the health care sector, Lia brings a wealth of knowledge in frontline health care, health care planning and development, rehabilitation and care of the elderly. Lia has held progressive leadership roles at the Timmins and District Hospital, including the Rehab/Stroke/Complex Continuing Care Coordinator, Interim Long Term Care Coordinator, Integrated Medical Manager and most recently the Director of Clinical Services where she oversaw Integrated Medical and the TADH offsite facility. A consistent leader, Lia has been instrumental in numerous change management and community integration projects, including the implementation of the Timmins Hospice Centre and offsite facility at TADH.

“If the past few years have taught us anything, it’s that we are stronger together,” states Kate Fyfe, President and CEO of Timmins and District Hospital. “Strong, collaborative partnerships, like the one with the City of Timmins, ensure that our community and district is well supported and cared for. Our community is fortunate to have exceptional leaders, like Lia, in it and we’re proud to support the Golden Manor, its residents and their families.”

“We are fortunate to have someone so experienced be able to step right into the role,” says Chief Administrative Officer Dave Landers. “Our partnership with the Timmins and District Hospital allows our two organizations to work that much more closely together, and is nothing but beneficial to those currently in or entering long-term care. This is also an example of two employers working collaboratively to address current staffing shortages in our area.”

“I’m very pleased that Lia will be replacing me as the Administrator at the Golden Manor,” says Carol Halt, Administrator of the Golden Manor. “I’ve had the privilege of working with Lia in the past, and I’m confident that her experience and leadership style will be a positive addition to the wonderful Golden Manor team! I wish Lia all the best as she transitions into her new role.”

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.”
