March Issue:
Councillor's Message
Dear  neighbours,

March is the month that comes 'In like a lion, and out like a lamb".

We will also spring forward and move our clocks forward 1 hour for Daylight Saving Time at 2:00am on Sunday, March 11.  We may lose an hours sleep, but we will have more light in the evening.  This is also a perfect opportunity to change  the batteries in your smoke & carbon monoxide detector.

I would like to wish everyone a very happy Easter.

If there is anything I can assist with, please do not hesitate to contact my office or send me an email.



Please do not throw your dog waste baggies on the ground.

Please use the correct waste bin.

Parking During Snow Activity

On-Street Parking is Suspended during Snow Operations

Parked cars on City streets reduce the ability of our winter crews to efficiently clear roads.

 You can help by removing parked cars from the street when it snows to give equipment space to work.  

An on-street parking restriction is in effect in Mississauga year-round between 2 to 6 a.m. Parked or stopped vehicles that violate the City's Traffic By-law 555-00 or on-street parking restriction will be issued a $40 penalty notice. They will also be subject to towing and storage fees at the expense of the owner. The vehicle's operational condition does not exempt the owner from meeting these requirements.
Suspension of Temporary Parking Requests

Temporary parking requests can be suspended at any time during snow events to allow staff and machinery to safely clear our roads. New temporary parking requests will not be issued and current ones will not be recognized for the duration of snow clearing operations.

We kindly ask residents to remove vehicles from City streets in order for crews to complete snow clearing operations within our service standards timelines.
To find out if temporary parking considerations have been suspended:
  • Follow us on Twitter @MississaugaSnow
  • Contact 311 (905-615-4311 outside city limits)
