Town Council makes temporary changes to parking enforcement in Halton Hills
Published April 15, 2021 at 4:08 pm
Council recently passed a resolution directing staff to take it easy on parking enforcement in the Town of Halton Hills and not ticket vehicles parked over six hours, overnight or in 12-hour zones.
This comes as a result of the Provincial Stay-at Home Order, which has caused some residents to house additional family members and their vehicles.
While it may come as a relief to the town’s residents, Mayor Rick Bonnette emphasized that these changes are only temporary.
“I want to be clear,” said Bonnette. “This is a temporary change to the bylaw to provide a bit of relief for residents juggling cars in spaces.”
“Staff will continue to provide enforcement for other parking matters such as blocking sidewalks, intersections or parking in front of a fire hydrant.”
These changes to parking enforcement will temporarily remain in effect until the Stay-at-Home Order has ended.Insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
