Dear  neighbours,

Happy New Year to you and yours!

To kick off 2018, I would like to invite you to my Annual 'Family Fun Skate' taking place on Sunday, January 28th @ Erin Mills Twin Arena.  The event is complimentary, however; we are asking that everyone please bring a non- perishable item, in support of Eden Food for Change.
Wishing you all the best for 2018!

City On-Street Parking
Staff from the City's Transportation and Works Department shared recommendations through a corporate report, that daily overnight parking restrictions be introduced from 2 to 6 a.m. and that on-street parking increase from three hours to five hours under the City's Traffic By-law (555-00).

"Parking needs are changing in Mississauga. As the city continues to grow and evolve, we want to give residents more flexible parking options such as accommodating increased parking on holy days, holidays and family celebrations," said Geoff Wright, Commissioner, Transportation and Works.
Currently on-street parking is not permitted for longer than three hours and between 2 and 6 a.m. from November 1 to March 31. This excludes holiday exemptions and other signed areas for parking beyond the three-hour limit between 8 a.m. to midnight. Extended parking for other days can be requested 24/7 using the City's Temporary Parking Permit Online Service  or by calling 311.
The corporate report also included a recommendation to implement a Digital Chalking Pilot Project to monitor on-street parking limit times and payment. Wright added, "Digital chalking records a parked vehicle's licence plate and wheel position to determine if it has exceeded the on-street parking time limit."
During the 2019 business planning process, the City's Enforcement section will ask for capital funding for the Digital Chalking Pilot Project.
Pending Council approval of the report on December 13, the five hour on-street parking maximum will take effect in January 2018 and the overnight restrictions will start in April 2018.

Tax Receipts Online

The City of Mississauga will offer property owners the convenience of viewing and printing a Simplified Tax Receipt online at no cost. Beginning December 15, property owners can submit a request for a Simplified Tax Receipt through the City's Tax Self-Service Centre website for the current year and one year prior.

"Property owners usually require a property tax receipt when being audited by the Canada Revenue Agency," said Connie Mesih, Director, Revenue and Materiel Management. "This initiative is a great way to provide customer service in an efficient and cost-effective way."

The Simplified Tax Receipt will only be available online and staff at the service counters will not be able to provide a copy. However, detailed tax receipts will continue to be available for purchase online or through mail-in and in-person requests for $25 each.
