• Council Passes Resolution to Support School Bus Safety Bill

    Recently at General Committee, Mississauga City Council passed a motion in support of Bill 94, Highway Traffic Amendment Act (School Bus Camera Systems), 2017  after receiving a deputation from Student Transportation of Peel Region (STOPR). STOPR plans and implements home-to-school transportation for approximately 65,000 students travelling to 400 school sites. On April 12th,  Council passed the resolution.

     

    The resolution states that the City of Mississauga will work with the Ministry of Transportation and the Ministry of the Attorney General to assist on developing policy and regulations in support of Bill 94.

     
    Bill 94 will make it easier to get convictions for drivers who don’t stop when lights are flashing and the stop arm is down on a school bus. The Bill updates the Highway Traffic Act to provide clear rules on using photographic or video evidence obtained through school bus camera systems in order to penalize offenders.

    “The City of Mississauga is proud to be a leader in supporting technology that helps keep our citizens and streets safe,” said Ward 3 Councillor Chris Fonseca. “This bill will assist school bus drivers if they need to report a dangerous and aggressive driver while on their route.”

     

    The resolution, brought forward by Councillor Fonseca, supports the City’s commitment to road traffic and pedestrian safety.

     
    Councillor Fonseca is a member of the Traffic Safety Council, an advisory committee of Council that makes recommendations designed to protect students from the dangers of vehicular traffic.

  • Hydro Corridor Multi-Use Trail Update

    Park Development staff and the project’s consultant Harrington McAvan Ltd. presented the final proposed multi-use trail alignment at a community meeting on Tuesday, March 28th.

     

    Residents had an opportunity to ask questions about the proposed trail specifics such as the trail width and shared usage, rest areas along the trail, buffer plantings, streets and Credit River crossings, construction costs and funding sources and the trail will be available for public use. The residents expressed their satisfaction and excitement about the proposed multi-use trail and are awaiting for its completion.

  • Proposed Animal Care and Control By-law Amendments Reduce Pet Licence Fees

    At General Committee today, Mississauga Animal Services proposed changes to pet licensing that allow residents to buy a new two-year pet licence at a reduced rate, as well as lower the cost of a pet licence for low-income residents. 

     

    In addition to revising the pet licensing fee structure, there will also be some changes to the cost of surrendering an animal to Animal Services. The revisions are part of significant recommendations that would amend the Animal Care and Control By-law 0098-04 when approved by Council on March 8.

     

    “Changes to pet licensing pricing will further support the compliance rate for pet licensing in Mississauga which has increased to 23.8 per cent in 2016 from 9.8 per cent in 2011,” said Geoff Wright, Commissioner of Transportation and Works. “These new fees benefit the community and better align pet licensing fees to other municipalities.”

     

    The recommendations are based on comparisons to other major municipalities across Canada, as well as an online survey that asked residents and community stakeholders about pet licensing.

     

    The recommendations include:

     

    • Enable residents to purchase or renew a regular two-year pet licence and receive a $10 discount
    • Discounted pet licence for low-income residents
    • Free pet licence for:
      • service animals certified for the blind, hearing impaired or other handicaps
      • therapy animals supported with medical documents
    • Reduction of fees for the surrendering of animals to the shelter for residents who may be experiencing financial hardship or meet the low-income measure
