According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, we must significantly reduce carbon emissions in the next 11 years to avoid further damaging effects of climate change. Council and I urge you to join the town in our community's fight against a climate change crisis by making these Top 10 Actions (pdf) part of your daily routine.
At a Special Council Meeting Monday night, Oakville Town Council unanimously approved a tow truck licensing by-law to ensure that only licensed tow truck companies and vehicle storage yards operate in town. The by-law will also regulate fees charged when a vehicle is towed from private property without the owner's consent, and ensure that signage is posted on lots where non-consent towing occurs.
The Town of Oakville has made changes to its parks
by-law to include regulations for smoking cannabis and vaping in town parks and recreation facilities. The by-law now prohibits vaping and cannabis use anywhere
smoking is prohibited, including 20 metres from all playgrounds and sporting and spectator areas. Please be considerate of others and learn the regulations.
