  • Water Interruption Notice scheduled for Wednesday, September 2, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

    Dear Customer:

    The Region of Peel Public Works department regularly maintains and repairs the water system to make sure you have a reliable supply of quality drinking water. Sometimes they must turn off your water supply while we do the work. In the next few days, they will be working in your area and will have to turn off your water for a few hours.

    Addresses: 870-920 and 873-917 Ninth Street

    Your water will be turned off on Wednesday, September 2, 2020  from approximately 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.       However, if the weather is bad or if a problem arises, we will reschedule the work and will let you know the new date and time.

    When they we turn the water back on, air in the pipes may make the water cloudy and your plumbing may vibrate or make noise. If this happens, you can remove the air by briefly turning on your taps from the lowest to the highest faucet in the building (that is, starting in the basement/first floor and finishing on the top floor). Flush the toilets as well.

    You should only have to run the water for 10 to 30 seconds, but keep running it until the water is clear and any vibration or noise has stopped.

    If your water meter starts to leak, call Water Meter Installations Dispatch at:

    • (905) 791 – 7800 Ext. 3226 (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Monday to Friday)
    • (905) 791 – 7800 Ext. 4409 (After hours or Statutory Holidays)

     

  • Your Last Words Shouldn’t Be a Text: Distracted Driving is a Major Concern in Mississauga

                                                                                                                        

    August 31, 2020

    The next time you are driving and decide to use your phone – think again, it’s illegal. Distracted driving is dangerous for all road users like road users including pedestrians, drivers, cyclists, commuters, mobility-device users and other methods of active transportation. The Distracted Driving law applies to the use of any handheld communications device and display screens like a phone, tablet or gaming console. The City, in partnership with the Road Safety Committee, is rolling out a campaign this September to remind Mississauga road users about the dangers of distracted driving.

    “Far too many drivers continue to be distracted on Mississauga roads. It only takes seconds to cause a life-altering crash that can impact you, your passenger and others on the road. Whether you’re setting a GPS route or talking and texting, using your phone while driving just isn’t worth it. Last year, Peel Regional Police issued a total of 1,140 distracted driving tickets, 500 of which were in Mississauga,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “Keeping our roads safe here in Mississauga is one of our top priorities. Any death or injury on our roads is unacceptable. This campaign will help educate and ensure the safety of pedestrians, cyclists and drivers and ensure they continue to move safely and freely around our city.”

    The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) reports that you’re four times more likely to have a crash when you’re distracted while driving and the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) reports that one in three drivers in Ontario engages in distracted driving with a mobile device. Additionally, research from the MTO, Traffic Injury Research Foundation and CAA found that young drivers under the age of 44 are more engaged in distracted driving.

    Awareness of distracted driving is an important aspect of the Road Safety Committee’s 2020 goal to develop awareness and educate Mississauga residents about road safety initiatives, programs and issues.

    “The Road Safety Committee is focusing its efforts on distracted driving in September with a goal of creating more awareness around this dangerous habit,” said Ward 9 Councillor Pat Saito, Road Safety Committee Chair. “The statistics tell a story. They are staggering and we need to make our roads safer by sending a strong message to our residents that distracted driving is dangerous.”

    The Committee has been largely driven by the Vision Zero Framework. The framework focuses on the prevention of fatalities and injuries due to motor vehicle collisions.

    “Our Transportation Master Plan has a goal of safety for all travellers on our roads,” said Geoff Wright, Commissioner, Transportation and Works. “Vision Zero is a key component of the Transportation Master Plan and the plan proposes 26 actions to achieve the safety goal. We are working in partnership with the Road Safety Committee, and raising awareness of distracted driving is one example of us working toward preventing fatalities and injuries on our roads.”

    For a first distracted driving offence, you’ll receive a $615 fine up to $1,000, three demerit points and a three-day licence suspension. Second-time distracted driving offenders will receive a minimum $615 fine up to $2,000, six demerit points and a seven-day licence suspension.

  • Mississauga joins Canada United to Support Local Businesses and Accelerate Small Business Recovery

    August 26, 2020

    Today, Mayor Bonnie Crombie announced that the City of Mississauga is joining Canada United, a national movement that brings fellow Canadians together to show their support for local businesses.

    Canada United is a national movement to support local businesses in communities across the country. Canadians and Mississauga residents alike are encouraged to participate in the social movement with their views, likes, shares and follows in support of small and local businesses. Every social action will result in a donation of five cents by Royal Bank of Canada toward small business recovery grant funding.

    “During these challenging times, our local businesses have shown compassion, empathy, concern and charity and now it is our opportunity to give back and stand together as a country and a community,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “This is also why we launched Mississauga Made, our very own buy and shop local campaign back in June. Small businesses are essential to our economy and need our help now more than ever. I encourage everyone to stand behind our vibrant small business community and help them recover by shopping and dining locally, especially during Canada United Weekend from August 28 until August 30, 2020.”

    Mississauga Made is a free online marketplace where local businesses, artists and vendors can promote their products and services. The initiative inspires residents to support and promote local products, businesses, local artists and experiences within our community.

    The Mississauga Made marketplace features over 100 local listings from a variety of business categories with new listings being added daily. The easy-to-use website means residents can search to find new and local businesses in their neighbourhood. From local restaurants to nearby salons, or freelance photographers and one-of-a-kind shops – Mississauga Made is committed to bringing business and community members together to support everything local.

    You can support Mississauga Made by:

    • Joining the movement and +Add Your Listing to MississaugaMade.ca
    • Joining the conversation online with #MississaugaMade
    • Buying from local restaurants, shops and businesses
    • Sharing your favourite local businesses on social media

    In addition to supporting Mississauga Made, residents are encouraged to Show Up for Canada United by giving local businesses your business from August 28 until August 30, 2020.

    “The Mississauga Board of Trade is a strong supporter of Canada United and Mississauga Made.  These programs highlight the great businesses we have in our City and encourage all of us to shop local.  We hope the people of Mississauga will do so on Canada United Weekend,” said David Wojcik, President and CEO of Mississauga Board of Trade.

    Residents can also watch the Canada United videos online at GoCanadaUnited.ca, like posts from @GoCanadaUnited on social media and use #CanadaUnited to help raise funds to provide grants to local businesses.

    Visit mississaugamade.ca to discover and connect with Mississauga businesses or follow @visitsauga on Twitter.
