NOVEMBER ISSUE:
Councillor's Message







Dear  neighbours,

Can you believe that we are welcoming November?
 
Before you head to bed on Saturday, November 2, don't forget to turn your clocks back 1 hour for Daylight Saving Time.   This is a great time to also replace the batteries in your smoke detectors. 
 
If there is anything I can assist with, please do not hesitate to contact my office or send me an email.

Regards,

Matt

Windrow Applications

Some Mississauga residents can get ahead of winter and start applying for the City's Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program . The program provides snow clearing assistance by clearing a space in the windrow for residents 65 years or older and for people with physical disabilities.
 
A windrow is a pile of snow left at the end of a driveway after a snow plow has cleared a road. Eligible residents have until 9 p.m. on November 8, 2019 to apply for this year's program.
 
"We encourage eligible residents to take advantage of this opportunity so that snow clearing and getting out of their driveway is made easier for them this winter," said Mickey Frost, Director, Works Operations and Maintenance. "As this program only accepts a maximum of 300 applicants on a first-come first-serve basis, residents should apply as soon as they can to secure their spot."
 
Details about the program:
 

The program will run from December 2, 2019 to March 27, 2020. Windrow snow clearing will be completed up to 36 hours after a snowfall has ended.

 

A space in the windrow will be cleared (about three metres or 10 feet wide) to allow one car to get in and out of the driveway.

 

Free for eligible residents who require financial assistance and $200 for those who don't.

 

Only one person per address can apply.

 
Visit mississauga.ca/windrow  to download the application form. Completed application
s can be submitted to any
community centre , the Mississauga Seniors' Centre  or the Recreation Customer Service Centre located at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre.
 
For more information, visit mississauga.ca/windrow.

Slower Residential Street Limits


The City will gradually lower speeds on residential streets from 50 - 40 km/h.

This year, 11 neighbourhoods across the City will have their speed limits reduced to 40 km/h.  The new 40 km/h speed limit in Mississauga neighbourhoods advances Vision Zero by matching speeds to the types of activity on a street.
