Town Council Meeting on July 4

The Town will hold a Council meeting on July 4, 2022, at 3 p.m. via Zoom. In our efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and to protect all individuals, in person public attendance will not be permitted at this time.

Council members are adopting a new practice for attending meetings using a hybrid approach whereby some members will attend in person and others will attend virtually on a rotational basis.

If you would like to submit feedback, please email your comments to clerks@haltonhills.ca. Comments submitted will be circulated to Council Members in advance of the meeting and will be part of the public record.

Administrative Monetary Penalties System

The Administrative Monetary Penalty System (AMPS) supports residents in resolving parking disputes in a more convenient and efficient manner by moving the responsibility to the Town instead of residents having to travel to the nearest courthouse (Burlington).

Resolving issues locally under the AMPS, means parking matters can be resolved in weeks versus potentially months. The Town of Halton Hills will begin with the AMPS on July 4, 2022. Please note that penalty notices can still be disputed as part of the new process.

Tick Season is Back

It's tick season in Canada with many residents reporting sightings this year in Halton Hills. Check yourself and your pets regularly, especially if spending time outside in grassed areas.


Check hot spots on yourself and animals such as underarms, behind the ears, ankles/paws, the groin area and hair. If bitten by a tick and you experience symptoms such as a red rash around the tick bite, extreme fatigue/weakness, swollen lymph nodes, headache and neck stiffness or spasms/numbness or tingling - call your health care provider immediately.


Visit Halton Region's website to learn more about how to identify, report and protect your household from ticks.
