Upcoming Information Sessions About MiWay’s 2018 Service Plan

From September 25 to 30, MiWay is hosting public information sessions about its 2018 service plan. The sessions will provide the public with more information on how MiWay will increase service levels along major corridors and introduce more express services to power the grid network in 2018. The theme for the third year of the MiWay Five Transit Service Plan is “Powering the Grid.”

MiWay 5 is a five-year plan (2016-2020) that is shifting Mississauga’s transit system to a grid network that allows for more frequent buses along main corridors and delivers more direct services. The plan also optimizes the use of the Mississauga Transitway, which will be completed with the opening of Renforth station this fall.

Register for the City’s Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program

Residents 65 years and older and people with disabilities can register for the City of Mississauga’s Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program until 9 p.m. on Friday, November 10. A windrow is a pile of snow left at the end of a driveway after a snow plow has cleared a road.

“As we prepare for the winter season, we are asking residents 65 years and over and people with disabilities to register for the program,” said Mickey Frost, Director of Works Operations and Maintenance. “The program provides assistance to eligible applicants by clearing windrows after snow plowing operations are complete.”

Participants in the program will have approximately three metres (ten feet wide) of space cleared in the windrow, enough to allow one car to pass. The service is normally provided within 36 hours after the end of a snow storm. The program runs from November 27, 2017 until March 30, 2018.

The cost of the program is either $200 or free if the applicant meets financial assistance criteria. The program is offered to 300 eligible applicants on a first-come, first-served basis.

Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program applications are available online or at all community centres, the Recreation Customer Service Centre (located at the Mississauga Central Library) and the Mississauga Seniors’ Centre.

Now’s Your Chance – Share Your Ideas on What Can Community Services Be?

Do you have ideas or suggestions about what Culture, Recreation, Parks & Forestry, Library and Fire & Emergency Services can be in the future?

Help us continue building a city where people want to be. We’re creating long-range plans for the next five to 10 years for Culture, Recreation, Parks & Forestry, Library and Fire & Emergency Services.

Before Friday, July 7, we’re encouraging residents to share their thoughts and ideas for these plans by filling out an online survey. We want to know how we can make these services better for you. For those who complete the entire survey, there is a one in five  chance to win a $100 City of Mississauga Recreation gift card.

Information gathered from community engagement initiatives like the survey will help us make future decisions that reflect community needs, address Council priorities and enhance City services and programs.
