MISSISSAUGA, December 12, 2014 - In time for the holiday season, temporary parking permits for short-term parking can now be submitted online through the City of Mississauga's website.

"Most temporary parking permits are for guests, driveway repairs, and family celebrations or funerals," said Mickey Frost, director of Enforcement. "By submitting permits online (or by phone) residents can avoid parking fines. It is important to note that there are limits for these permits and they may need to be cancelled based on weather, emergencies or other conditions."

"Residents can now go online at their convenience to get a temporary parking permit," said Shawn Slack, director, Information Technology and Chief Information Officer. "Many City services such as tree pruning, recreation, library searches and pet licences are available online along with plans to implement additional mobile applications for City services in 2015."

Residents can have up to 14 short-term temporary parking permits in a year per address, with a five day maximum for five cars where there are no prohibited parking signs. If prohibited parking signs are present, please contact 311. Parking Enforcement and Traffic Operations will inspect the street to ensure that safety requirements are met.

Residents can request short-term temporary parking permits where no prohibitive parking signs are present:

• By telephone at 3-1-1 or 905-615-4311 (from outside city limits)

This service is offered free of charge and is approved the same day. Longer term permits can be made by calling 311.

Temporary Parking Permits may be cancelled at any time for weather conditions or emergency situations.

Temporary parking is not available to:

• Heavy vehicles 3,000 kg or more
• Vehicles without license plates
• Vehicles with expired license plate stickers
• Trailers that are not attached to motor vehicles
• Vehicles displaying "For Sale" signs
• Vehicles that are not mechanically functional
• School buses and commercial coaches

MISSISSAUGA, November 17, 2014 - The City of Mississauga is set for the 2014-2015 winter season. Learn how the Winter Maintenance Program works and how you can stay up-to-date as the snow flies.

"We encourage residents to stay informed of snow clearing and salting operations to help plan ahead for travel and activities," said Geoff Wright, director, Works Operations & Maintenance. "Our Twitter channel @MississaugaSnow provides updates on roads and snow clearing and salting."

How to keep up-to-date on plowing and salting

• Follow us on Twitter @MississaugaSnow for current conditions and progress
• Visit mississauga.ca/snow for live updates, details, routes and maps
• Call our Information Snow Line 905-615-SNOW (7669) to hear recorded information about plowing and salting during a snow event, available 24/7.

If there are concerns with road conditions please contact 3-1-1 or (905-615-4311 outside city limits) following the end of a snowstorm event.

The City's Winter Maintenance Program

The City clears and salts municipal roads, priority sidewalks, bus stops and pedestrian crossings within 12-36 hours after the end of a snowstorm. Back to back storms will extend this timing.

Winter maintenance standards are set by Council and help ensure emergency vehicles and transit can travel safely.

During a snowstorm crews focus on clearing priority routes. Local or residential streets are plowed after priority roads are cleared. Bare pavement is not guaranteed.

When does the City plow and salt?

Snow Season Parking - Safety Comes First – Plan Ahead

Roads with parked cars take longer to plow or salt. Please remove vehicles from roads during heavy snowfalls.

A winter on-street parking restriction is in effect in Mississauga between November 1 - March 31 between 2 - 6 a.m.  Parked or stopped vehicles will be towed and stored at the owner's expense.

During snow clearing, temporary paring requests (parking considerations) will not be issued and current ones will be cancelled.

Helping Others

Be a good neighbour and help others to travel safely to school, work, appointments or to run errands, especially the elderly or persons with mobility issues. Please clear your driveway, non-priority sidewalk and steps of ice and snow to make them safe for all.
