Update from Road Operations

Road Operations have been extremely busy this weekend, working 12-hour shifts around the clock to plow, salt and clear our roads. Crews are out in full force and working as quickly and safely as they can.

 As of Monday morning, main streets have been cleared.  Crews are now working on secondary/side streets. If your street has not yet been plowed, we ask for your patience as staff continues to clear and treat roadways.

 How Can You Help?

Remember that a parking ban remains in effect. Please ensure that your vehicle(s) are not parked on roadways. This helps our plows to quickly and safely clear roads.

 Road Closures

Currently there are no road closures because of the weather. If roads do need to be closed, staff will provide adequate signage and detour routes.

 Flooding

As weather warms up there may be flooding in some areas. Our crews are ready to:

·        Clear catch basins;

·        Steam iced-up culverts to get water flowing;

·        Close and detour roads, as required;

·        Stabilize and temporarily repair any road washouts (materials, e.g asphalt grindings, gabion stone, and clear stone are on-hand)

Spring time brings unwanted grass fires

Caledon Fire & Emergency Services (CFES) encourages residents to use caution when burning indoors or outdoors. Unattended burning is the most common cause of grass fires, and burning carelessly and improperly also pose hazards.

“So far we’ve already seen eight grass fires in Alton, Cheltenham, Inglewood, Caledon East, Mono Mills and Palgrave districts,” said Fire chief Darryl Bailey. “These grass or open air fires can be very dangerous at this time of year when the ground is very dry. Grass fires spread extremely quickly and if there are nearby buildings, they are also at high risk of being damaged.”

With Spring upon us, grass and brush can dry out making it very easy for fire to spread quickly and uncontrollably with the smallest breeze to nearby brush, trees and homes. Even discarding a cigarette butt improperly could start a grass fire.

Purchase Your Burn Permit

CFES encourages residents to buy their burn permit online, in person at Town Hall or at Fire Administration Headquarters (6211 Old Church Road, Caledon East).

Launched in 2014, Caledon’s online burn permit application includes three permit categories:

·        Open Air permits – for larger lots (at least a half-acre in size) to burn yard waste (but not grass clippings or leaves);

·        Recreational permits – for residential properties that meet minimum size/distance requirements;

·        Agricultural permits intended for agricultural properties.  These permits are NOT available online. They require an inspection, which must be arranged in advance.

Please check the Fire Hazard Rating before burning any materials. This rating is evaluated and changed considering outdoor conditions and Provincial assessments, and is enforced to ensure the safety of all residents.

To apply for a burn permit or to check the Fire Hazard Rating, visit caledon.ca/burnpermits.

For general fire safety information about smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, home escape planning and safe burn practices visit caledon.ca/fire.

Velocity – Ride to Support Caledon Seniors

image001.png

A smart partnership between CCS and the Town of Caledon has recently been formalized through an Agreement that will see Velocity and Caledon Day strutting their stuff together year after year. 

Please have a look at the Velocity website. We’re confident that this beautiful ride will bring out Caledon’s families and riders of all ages, as well as cyclists from surrounding communities, who love riding. They know all about the beauty of Caledon and we want them visiting and sticking around! Our four routes (10km; 25km; 60km; 100km) show off Caledon well, our ride-expert amazing Caledon volunteers have this and so much more planning all in hand. It’s going to be a great ride.

Key to Velocity is that when the riding is done, there’s lunch for everyone and then a very warm Caledon invitation to stay put and enjoy the afternoon and evening activities of Caledon Day!

Velocity registration begins in about a week. 

It would be Caledon Community Service’s honor and pleasure to have you and your families join us on your bicycles on Caledon Day in support of our community’s seniors.
