Mississauga - The City's Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program is open for older adults and people with disabilities to help clear snow at the end of driveways during road plowing.

"The program is open early to reach as many people as possible with this service which helps people live independently," said Bob Levesque, manager Works Maintenance & Operations. "The service runs after each snow plowing."

Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program

This program runs from November 24, 2014 to March 13, 2015. The windrow snow clearing service will plow a three metre (10 feet) wide area at the end of the driveway for one car to pass. The service may take up to 36 hours after a snow storm and bare pavement cannot be guaranteed.

Who is Eligible?

Residents who are 65 years and older in 2014 and people with disabilities can apply for the program. The cost of the program is either $200 or free if the applicant meets financial assistance criteria.

How to Apply?

Applications for the Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program are available online or at all community centres, the Recreation Customer Service Centre and the Mississauga Seniors' Centre. Visit the City's windrow web page for details on the program and for an application. City of Mississauga community centres will be accepting applications until Friday, November 14 at 9 p.m.

Government - City of Mississauga

MISSISSAUGA, September 3, 2014 – The City of Mississauga is setting new standards of care to protect animals with changes to the Animal Care and Control By-law 0098-04.

The new standards address issues such as: keeping animals outside for long periods; especially during extreme weather and how to provide proper care; tethering; and specifications on doghouses, pens and enclosures. Standards related to extreme weather and Animal Services staff authorization to enter on to private lands will take effect immediately with other standards taking effect December 1, 2014. Staff will report back to Council in fall 2015 to provide an update on the impacts of these changes.

A new ad hoc committee was formed to review the bylaw including three Members of Council; two residents; one representative from the Mississauga Humane Society; representatives from Mississauga Animal Services and Enforcement, and representatives from the veterinary and animal welfare communities.

New Standards of Care Highlights

• Pets cannot be left outdoors during extreme weather except for brief walks or exercise unless the animal has access to adequate shelter to protect the animal – in effect immediately.
• Animal Services officers will be authorized to enter on private lands to inspect and ensure the Animal Care and Control bylaw is being followed – in effect immediately.
• Doghouses must be large enough for the dog to stand up, turn around, lie down and stretch its limbs to the fullest. They must be insulated; have clean dry bedding and shade; be in good repair; and comply with the City's Zoning by-law. There are extra requirements for each additional dog.
• Pens must be 9.3 square metres or 100 square feet - to be increased by 2.8 square metres x 30 square feet for each additional dog. Animals must be out of the pen and not tethered for four hours in any 24 hour time period.
• Animals must not be tethered for any longer than a total of four hours out of every 24 hours. Tethers must be at least three metres or 9.84 feet allowing the dog to move safely and unrestricted. The animal is to be in view of the owner with access to appropriate food, water shelter and shade.
• Animals cannot be left unattended in automobiles if weather conditions are not suitable and may cause the animal distress. Animals must have suitable ventilation and be restrained to prevent contact between the animal and the public.
• Animals travelling in automobiles must be in the passenger compartment of the vehicle or if outside must be in a kennel that is securely fastened to the vehicle that provides adequate ventilation and protects the animal.
• Owners must provide veterinary care to pets to relieve distress from injury neglect or disease.
