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.

With the City of Timmins’ Connecting Link construction underway, residents traveling from the east over the Mattagami Bridge for their vaccine appointment should expect delays.

The first phase of construction has Algonquin reduced to one lane in both directions at Mattagami Blvd. South. As the project proceeds, a full detour down Wilson Avenue will be required.

“We suggest adding an extra 15 to 30 minutes to your travel time,” says Public Works Manager Ken Krcel. “We’ve made every effort to help maintain traffic flow, but there will be delays. If you have a set appointment, it’s a good idea to give yourself more time.”

Vaccine appointments at the Mountjoy Arena are done by appointment only and the time is specific to allow vaccination of as many people as possible, to reduce wait times, and to support public health measures such as physical distancing, cleaning of surfaces and limiting gatherings.

“The vaccine is the critical step forward in fighting this pandemic and protecting the health and safety of all communities. Please arrive on time to prevent delays at the clinic,” says Dr. Lianne Catton, Medical Officer of Health of the Porcupine Health Unit (PHU). “If you are late, the staff at the clinic will work with you to get your vaccine.”

Once the full detour onto Wilson Ave. is in place, also add an additional 15 to 30 minutes travel time if you’re taking Timmins Transit.

You can get the latest news on Connecting Link construction straight to your phone. Sign up for the City of Timmins’ Connecting Link alerts at Timmins.ca.

Remember that vaccine clinics are by appointment only. The Porcupine Health Unit is now offering clinics to primary priority groups in Phase 2 of the province’s COVID-19 Vaccination Plan. You can book your appointment online at porcupinehu.on.ca or by calling 705-360-4819.

Premier Ford has announced an extension to Ontario’s current Stay-At-Home Order, which closes most outdoor recreational amenities across the province effective immediately. This preventative measure is anticipated to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 as Ontario continues to battle a third wave of the pandemic.

City owned sports fields, basketball courts, multi-use and tennis courts, beaches, skateboard parks, and picnic areas that would have the potential to attract a high density of users are now closed to the public.

The Ontario Government has reversed its decision to close playgrounds. Playground equipment can be used, but the current Stay-at-Home order also restricts outdoor gatherings to members of your immediate household. When exercising outside, maintain social distancing and wear a mask any time physical distancing is not possible.

Measures to ensure public safety will include installed signage and locking gate access to courts and fields to encourage compliance with provincial measures.

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.
