Coyote Sightings Prompts Reminder from the Ministry of Natural Resources

Please be advised that following some recent coyote sightings in Georgina, the Ministry of Natural Resources is reminding residents about some important safety tips should you encounter one. An increase in coyote sightings can be attributed to changes in land use, agricultural practices, weather, supplemental feeding, and natural food shortages. For more information on coyotes, please view the Living with Coyotes Fact Sheet.


Changes To Canada Post Delivery Service

The Town has learned that some residents have been visited by Canada Post Representatives indicating that their property is a proposed location for a Community Mail Box (CMB) and for any questions, to contact Town staff. Council continues to oppose these changes in delivery service. If you have any questions about the upcoming changes to delivery service, you are reminded to contact the Canada Post Customer Call Centre at 1-844-454-3009, not the Town. Canada Post Corporation Representatives attended Council on April 1 to present information surrounding upcoming changes to its residential delivery service. A copy of the presentation can be viewed at the Agendas and Minutes page. Earlier this year, Canada Post announced that approximately 4,100 door-to-door customers in Keswick will be converted to Community Mailboxes in 2015 as part of their conversion of approximately 1/3 of Canadian addresses to Community Mailboxes. Further information is available on the Community Mailbox Conversions webpage. View the Map of Affected Areas.
