Laughton Heights Park Tennis Courts Update

By Events, Issues, Resources, Ward 1

The City of Mississauga’s 2019/2020 reconstruction program had 16 courts which required redevelopment.  Due to the COVID19 Provincial Order under Ontario Regulation 82/20 construction was halted in March of 2020 until June 2020.  Given the late start in 2020, the City was unable to deal with the entire program despite the contractors efforts to reschedule completion of all sites.  As construction progressed through the year, the courts within the City were assessed for condition, safety and playability and seven courts in fair condition had to be delayed.

Dog Grooming in the City of Mississauga

By Events, Issues, Ward 1
Yesterday, I was happy to raise the issue of Pet Grooming in the City of Mississauga. Last week at Council, we unanimously asked the Province’s Solicitor General to make dog walkers and pet groomers essential services.
Until receiving word back, it was decided there will not be any enforcement in the City provided, it is done by curbside drop off and pickup.
Special Thank You to Tanya and the International Pet Groomers Association
