Infrastructure funding 
The Town of Georgina received $2.77 million from the Ontario government through the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF) for 2022. The Town approved its 2022 budget on Dec. 1, 2021. It allocated approximately $1.4 million in Ontario Community Infrastructure Funds to the roads program. This new investment will be considered as part of the Town's Long-range Financial Plan which is being updated in 2022. The results will be presented to Council after the financial plan is completed.
Winter operations
Winter weather has arrived. The Town is committed to providing a consistent level of snow removal service throughout the winter season. Using a combination of Town staff and contractors, plowing, sanding and salting is performed each winter with consideration to safety, environmental and budgetary concerns.
Winter parking restrictions
Winter weather has arrived. That’s a reminder of our shared role in keeping roads and walkways clear. Winter parking restrictions are now in effect until April 15, meaning no parking on streets between the hours of 2 a.m. and 7 a.m.
Stormwater ponds
With colder temperatures on the way, a reminder that stormwater ponds will freeze and they are not to be used as skating rinks. They are not intended or designed for recreational use as water levels can change rapidly and create unsafe conditions. This is extremely dangerous and poses many safety risks for residents.
