Failure to correct deficiencies in a timely manner may also result in non-issuance of future permits. Should the cost for correcting the deficiencies be greater than the deposit, the invoice will be forwarded to your company for payment and/or your insurance provider may be contacted.
    • The deposit will only be refunded once all permit conditions have been met and the work has been inspected and accepted by the Town.
    • The following payment methods are accepted at Town Hall:

Safe Winter Driving Techniques and Notices

OGRA has compiled a series of helpful reminders for safe winter driving techniques.

You can access their materials on the OGRA SnowHow Campaign page. They have also prepared a few short winter driving videos. Please remember to drive according to weather and road conditions, which means to slow down and provide more stopping distance than what you normally would for dry roads and weather.

Winter Driving: Simple Steps to Staying Safe from Dufferin County

The Town's Public Works Director supports the creation of this video and highly recommends that all drivers watch this at least once. Drivers are encouraged to review the video annually in preparation for wintery road conditions.
