Message from the Mayor
Our staff, with the support of Council, having been taking all of the necessary steps to protect the health and well being of our residents by following the recommendations from our local public health officials.
Today, Middlesex Centre declared a “State of Emergency.” This is an administrative action which will for example, ensure our municipality can qualify for emergency funding the Federal and Provincial governments may make available to help cover unexpected costs incurred as a result of the pandemic.
To limit the spread of COVID-19, our staff took early and decisive action to cancel recreational programming and close our facilities - including the Municipal office. Where possible, staff are working from home and/or staggered shifts to ensure social distancing needs can be maintained.
Fortunately, we are well positioned to continue to provide day-to-day services like building permits, payments processing, etc. through our website and email. And, I can assure everyone that all of our essential services including water and wastewater treatment, road safety and emergency/fire services continue to operate as normal. Having said this, things continue to change quickly. I urge all of you to check our
for the latest information regarding municipal services.
Middlesex Centre residents tend to rally together both in times of celebration and times of need. I’ve already seen lots of that generosity, kindness of spirit coming and offers of help coming across on social media, as residents and neighbours look for ways to make things better or easier for each other. It’s truly wonderful to see our community support each other at this difficult time!
Take good care and stay healthy,
Mayor Aina DeViet, Middlesex Centre
