Carbon Monoxide Week
November 1 to 7 is Carbon Monoxide (CO) Awareness Week. Carbon Monoxide is known as the silent killer because it has no colour, odour or taste. Having working CO alarms inside your home means it won't go undetected - it is the law! Learn more at https://bit.ly/3Vf4DpF

Daylight Savings Time Ends
Check Your Smoke Alarms On November 5, the clocks go backwards one hour as daylight savings time ends. This means that it’s time to change the batteries in your smoke and co alarms. Don’t forget to test the batteries in your alarms monthly. In an emergency, seconds matter and working smoke alarms save lives.

This allocation is the Town’s current capacity based on current sewage allocation. However, Provincial and Regional efforts are underway to plan for and deliver an expansion to the York Durham Sewage System (YDSS) that will ultimately provide full municipal servicing for EG residents and businesses.  
Share Your Thoughts! 
Council would like to hear from you! Complete this brief survey www.eastgwillimbury.ca/AllocationSurvey by November 12, 2023.
