Skate safely this winter. Remember – storm ponds are NOT to be used as skating or hockey rinks. They are not intended or designed for recreational use as water levels can change rapidly and create unsafe conditions. This is extremely dangerous and poses many safety risks for residents.

Instead, enjoy our local public skating options at the Georgina Ice Palace, Sutton Arena or the ROC (weather permitting). For more information and hours of operation, visit the skating page on the Town's website.

Join us at the ROC on Thursday, Jan. 3 from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. as CP24 Breakfast broadcasts live.

Host Jamie Gutfreund will be there for what is sure to be a fun morning on the hill.

Tubing, skiing, tobogganing and snowboarding are all free!

Progress continues with the construction of the new Pefferlaw Fire Hall. The foundations have been poured and the walls are now taking shape.

Once the exterior walls are complete, the roof structure will be installed.

At 10,690 square feet, the facility will include new apparatus bays, gear and training rooms, and office space. The project is estimated to cost approximately $3.7 million. Funding for the construction is being dealt with through the 2018/19 budget process.

Should cannabis be available for retail purchase in Georgina? That is the question Town Council is hoping you can help answer.

On Oct. 17, recreational cannabis use became legal across Canada. The province has given municipalities the option to opt out of permitting cannabis retail stores within their boundaries by Jan. 22, 2019.

The 2019 Budget process continues at the Town of Georgina, bringing forward financial recommendations to best position the Town to meet the needs of residents and businesses – now and in the future.

The 2019 Draft Budget proposes a tax increase of 2.9 per cent. This is in line with the annual rate of inflation while also meeting the needs of a growing community and planning for the future. Council received an additional recommendation to add another one per cent to go towards capital infrastructure reserves. If approved, the total tax increase would be 3.9 per cent.
