    Why is baseball not being allowed to move into phase 3? 100 people outdoors. Surely you would think smart people could figure this out. Kids need to stay active.

    Ian Carruthers Asked 19 days ago

    Thank you for reaching out to the Town. The Town is working closely with many of the baseball organizations locally.  All of these organizations are governed by their Provincial Sport Organizations (i.e. National Softball Association or Baseball Ontario). The PSO's have strict guidelines they must follow as they return to play. Minor Baseball has resumed games. It should be noted that in the Provincial Legislation for Stage 3, that team sports are only allowed to be played in leagues of no more than 50 people.  All organizations are working on a model that follows this protocol. We are very excited to see kids back to sports and many of our local organizations and volunteers are working to make this happen.

    Why is Halton Hills not moving to phase 3 now? We have a different covid experience than Halton and yet we are continually held back. Many local businesses can’t afford further delays. Is someone bringing this to Doug Fords attention?

    Christina Huras Asked 28 days ago

    Hello and thank you for contacting the Town. While Premier Ford did recently announce the move into Stage 3, the Region of Halton remains in Stage 2. Moving into Stage 3 will be a regional approach and this is something the Mayor of Halton Hills has been advocating for. Please see his request to Premier Ford here and click on "Halton Region Stage 3, a Letter to the Premier - July 14, 2020". Changes will not take place over night. Instead, practices and processes at the regional level will need to be gradually phased in as we digest all of the new implications that come with Stage 3 of the provincial plan.

    Based on the recent stats in respect to the increase in covid cases when will our leaders take a look at what's happening on our doorstep and make wearing of masks in public places mandatory?. Let's not wait for the inevitable to happen, businesses closing, job loss's and more fatalities.

    Ross Auckland Asked about 1 month ago

    Hello and thank you for contacting the Town. On July 9, 2020, Town Council passed temporary By-Law No. 2020-0037, requiring the wearing of a mask/face covering in enclosed public places during the COVID-19 pandemic which is to become effective this Thursday, July 16, 2020. You can read the full media release here. Local businesses can also download a mask-requirement sign for their storefronts. 

    Thank you for reaching out and stay safe!

    Do you know if summer camps run by the town will operate this summer?

    Pappakennz Asked 3 months ago

    Thank you for reaching out to us! The Town of Halton Hills has made the decision to cancel all registered programs and facility rentals until June 22, 2020. All recreation facilities will also remain closed until this date with consideration given to reopening should conditions allow.

    The Town’s action aligns with direction from the Medical Officers of Health and provincial orders to practice 'physical distancing' and avoid large gatherings. 

    Residents with questions about registered programs or cancellations can call 905-873-2600, ext. 2275 or email recreation@haltonhills.ca. More information on the Town’s response to COVID-19 can be found on haltonhills.ca/covid19

    Town Hall: When will outdoor recreation areas such as local conservation areas, Halton Forrest etc open for hiking and biking? They can be used while also social distancing.

    Tamsinj Asked 3 months ago

    Hello and thank you for reaching out to the Town. The opening of outdoor recreational areas will be dictated by the Province’s lifting of regulations. Regional Forests and Conservation Areas are not under the jurisdiction of the Town, and we do not have any control over when they will be open. Please contact the Region of Halton 311 or your local conservation authority for more information. The Town of Halton Hills parks and trails (including the Hungry Hollow trail system) have remained open, provided that visitors follow physical distancing and restrictions on gathering, for use, though park amenities remain closed.

    Is there any way that the spring compost giveaway could happen in a socially distanced manner? Like people sign up for a time to go or something? A lot of people are beginning or expanding gardens in response to food security concerns and the compost is a cost effective component of soilless mix.

    Kari Asked 3 months ago

    Hello and thank you for reaching out to the Town of Halton Hills. Unfortunately, this year we are not hosting our annual compost giveaway in light of the current COVID-19 situation. However, we will still be having our annual tree sale. Online tree ordering will be made available between May 6th - 8th through the Town’s website and curbside pickup of orders will take place between May 11th – 15th at our Public Works yard located at 11620 Trafalgar Rd. Customers will need to show their proof of purchase from their cars upon order pickup and staff will load the trees into the vehicles. 

    Please visit our website if you are interested in ordering trees: https://www.haltonhills.ca/sustainability/inourcommunity.php 

    Thank you and stay well!

    Some communities have made the decision to allow residents to defer their tax payments during this time. Is Halton Hills considering this?

    Elisa Alexander Asked 5 months ago

    Hello Elisa,

    As a follow-up to your enquiry the Town of Halton Hills will be offering temporary relief for taxpayers by removing all penalties and fees for those who need to defer payment, in light of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. The grace period will run from April 1 to June 30, 2020. Taxpayers who are on the preauthorized tax payment plan or those who have sent post-dated cheques for their upcoming installments, have the option of staying with the current terms or cancelling the payment by emailing taxdepartment@haltonhills.ca or calling 905-873-2600 before 4:30 p.m. April 15, 2020.

    Please visit haltonhills.ca for the full media release.

    Has the Mayor appeared in the media yet? Or will he. He is a great leader and I'd like to see him out there (podcast, streaming conference, TV interview, FB live, etc.). Our news is flooded with COVID19 news and many other world, national and community leaders. We want Rick. Maybe I've already missed it and this is not meant as a criticism. We know he is busy.

    eric Asked 5 months ago

    Hi Eric, thanks for reaching out. The Mayor has daily teleconference calls with Council and the CAO. He has issued a few posts to the community available on the Town’s COVID-19 webpage  under ‘announcements’.  Recently the Mayor had begun providing short video updates along with his daily Twitter posts.  Please continue to watch the Town’s web page for current information on COVID-19 and updates from Mayor Bonnette.

    Just a thought. Maybe the town, counsellors or mayor look into any dentist offices or tattoo paroles to donate their gloves and masks to the hospital. Just a thought

    Senior Asked 5 months ago

    Thank you very much for your thoughts on this! We will certainly pass the idea along.

    What is the town doing to assist non for profit organizations?

    Baksh Asked 4 months ago

    Thank you for your question.  You might be interested to know that your question was addressed at the Virtual Town Hall which you can watch here: 

    https://www.haltonhills.ca/committees/virtualtownhall.php

    Through the Town’s economic development group we are reaching out to these non-profit organizations and through exchanges of information and are explaining to them what the other orders of government have done to assist them with things. Such as there are 75% wage subsidies available. From the Towns perspective, we haven’t really had the opportunity to identify or understand some of the challenges other than perhaps from a fundraising perspective. Citizens will have an opportunity through the Town’s economic development group in the coming days and weeks to offer feedback and put in requests to our staff. We will do everything we can to help these organizations be able to continue their operations as close to normal as possible.
