SWM HeadlinesGarbage Collection - Friday, February 22, 2019
Emterra has advised any remaining Thursday collections not collecte yesterday will be completed today; followed by Friday's pickup. At this point, they are anticipating all of Friday's map will be completed. Updates will be posted should anything change.
Effective immediately, the bylaw enforcement officer for Southwest Middlesex will be ticketing anyone parked on the street between the hours of 3am and 6am.
Keeping the streets clear of vehicles during this time allows for effective winter road maintenance.
Southwest Middlesex has been kept informed by Strathroy-Caradoc about resignations of firefighters from the Melbourne Fire Station. The fire station in Melbourne provides initial response protection to a number of residences in the municipality of Southwest Middlesex under a fire protection agreement between the two municipalities.
While there is currently no operational reason to question the reliability of the fire service in Melbourne, to allay any concerns of residents and businesses in the Melbourne community, including the SWM fire protection area, there is a two station response for any emergency scene. As per the normal practice, an alarm for a structure fire will dispatch the volunteer firefighters from the Glencoe Fire Station.
Should there be any concerns, please contact SWM Fire Chief Bob Hansen @ 519-494-1166 for more information.
