HALTON HILLS, ON – It was a coordinated effort across departments to share information and address current and emerging weather-related issues. That’s the message from Chief Administrative Officer Brent Marshall who commended staff for working through the weekend for the safety and well-being of Halton Hills residents.
“This was a significant weather event and I’m pleased that we were able to quickly mobilize plows, sanders and salters,” he said, adding “The thick layer of ice did impact our equipment but staff has been diligent in performing snow clearing duties through round-the-clock shifts, working all weekend.”
“Residents should feel very confident in the service they receive from the Town,” said Mayor Rick Bonnette. “A weather incident such as we are experiencing really tests our ability to mobilize resources in a coordinated and expedited manner and I am proud of staff and their commitment to working hard on behalf of our community.”
Major arterial roads were given precedence and snow clearing continues on side streets and sidewalks. A number of recreational programs were cancelled and residents are encouraged to use the program hotline at 905-873-2601 x 2708. There were no major incidents reported to the Town as of 6:30 pm last night.
