Property Taxes Are Due

Final 2021 residential tax bills have been mailed and payments were due on October 29. Payments can be made at the Civic Centre, at your bank, online/phone banking or through a preauthorized payment plan. Please contact the Town at 905-478- 4282 or send us and email for any questions.

If your tax account is not current, a pre-set monthly payment can be arranged to help you catch up on tax arrears. Unpaid taxes will be charged 1.25% interest per month effective the first day of default. Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt the bill from being due or from incurring interest.

Coyote Safety

If you encounter a coyote, keep your distance and keep pets on a leash. If the coyote is aggressive:
  1. Stop and pick up small children and pets.
  2. Shout loudly, wave your arms high in the air or use whistles.
  3. Back away slowly while remaining calm.
  4. Never run or turn your back on a coyote.

Lymantria Dispar Dispar (LDD/Gypsy Moth) Egg Masses

As you are cleaning up your gardens and yards for winter, make sure you are checking for LDD egg masses! LDD egg masses are oval in shape, tan in colour and fuzzy in texture. They tend to be on tree trunks and on the underside of branches and leaves. To reduce the LDD caterpillar population and damage done next year, it is important to remove these egg masses now. Visit our LDD: Protect Your Trees page for step-by-step instructions and tips.
