September 12, 2019 - The City of Timmins’ crown jewel of parks is well on its way to completion.

Following Council’s approval on August 16, 2019 to secure the services of Interpaving Ltd. to complete construction of the detailed design for the Hollinger Park, work is well underway, and based on the detailed work plan submitted by the contractor, all works should be completed by the end of November, 2019, pending favourable weather conditions.

A series of pre-construction activities have occurred over the past couple of weeks, including the completion of detailed shop drawings relating to the steel, electrical, concrete, paving stones and other material components, as well as pricing and ordering of materials. Fencing has been delivered and installed, and heavy equipment has been mobilized.

“Over the coming weeks, the public can expect the vision of the new Hollinger Park to take form with the mobilization of additional equipment and manpower, the delivery of construction materials and site preparation activities,” said Director of Community and Development Services Mark Jensen. “We understand the disappointment of some residents in not being able to fully utilize the park this summer, but we can assure the public that once complete, the Hollinger Park will once again become a prized piece of land that our community can be proud of.”

Background:
Previous soil sampling in the Hollinger Park indicated there are elevated metals contained within the soil. While the levels found are above what would be found in most parks, they are well below levels found in many similar communities in Ontario and Canada with metal smelters or past mining activities. They are not present at levels that would be expected to result in adverse health effects to park users. The City has conducted further testing to determine what additional remedial action is required, to be included in the five-year plan for the Hollinger Park.

A conceptual design was prepared by Dillon Consulting in 2018 and the city has also secured the services of an engineering firm to complete a detailed lot grading and drainage plan to accommodate the soil that is to be added to the site.

The public’s understanding and cooperation has been greatly appreciated while the city works to rehabilitate and beautify this gem in the heart of our community.

September 6, 2019 - The flags at all municipally-owned facilities will be flying at half-mast on Sunday, September 8 in recognition and support of the Firefighters’ National Memorial Day.

Established by the Government of Canada in 2017, the second Sunday of September each year, serves as tribute to public safety officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

“The Government of Canada recognizes the dangers firefighters often face when carrying out their duties, and the ultimate sacrifice of firefighters who have given their lives in the line of duty,” states a Government of Canada news release. “Firefighters’ National Memorial Day will commemorate their courage, their selflessness, and their unwavering commitment to serving our communities.”

“It’s important to recognize that we are not only honouring those who have lost their lives, but those who continue to dedicate themselves to this noble career,” said Mayor George Pirie. “Our community is extremely fortunate to have a large numbers of highly skilled, dedicated and brave professionals and volunteers committed to keeping us safe.”

According to the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation (CFFF), more than 1,300 firefighters have died on duty since 1848. The board of the CFFF is deeply committed to the families of the fallen and engages with them on an ongoing basis. The Foundation is all-inclusive in its recognition and support of the fallen, whether they are volunteer (who represent 80 per cent of all firefighters), full-time, military, wildland, or industrial firefighters.

textile recyclingSeptember 6, 2019 - A new partnership between the City of Timmins and Talize Inc. officially kicks off Monday, September 9, with the goal of diverting textiles that end up in the landfill, at zero cost to, and with no labour involvement from the City and its taxpayers.

This new pilot program (or experimental trial) will include a curbside collection service beginning Monday, September 9 for all those with curbside waste collection. Items collected will include used clothing, footwear and linens, as well as damaged or ripped textiles. Residents with curbside collection should have already received a clear plastic bag and a flyer directly from Talize Inc. with further instructions and links to helpful information. Any other clear bag will also be accepted in this collection, for those who may not have received one, or who have additional items that do not fit in the single bag provided.

We are encouraging all residents to check the schedule as it will vary from the regular waste collection day. Also, while mobile home communities were not included on the initial schedule, they have been added as follows:
- Wednesday, Sept. 11: True North Estates Mobile Home Park and Fairway Village
- Thursday, Sept. 12: Northglen Community
- Friday, Sept. 13: Notre Dame Trailer Park

Anyone with questions or concerns regarding this program are encouraged to contact Recycling Rewards directly at 1-800-737-3653, or CLICK HERE.

The City of Timmins continues to encourage the use of the Timmins Recyclepedia app which allows residents to sign up for pick up reminders. The app also notifies residents when there is a delay or change in the curbside collection schedule and offers helpful tips on how to responsibly dispose of waste. Textile program notifications are also integrated into the app, as textile collection dates will differ from regular curbside collection to avoid any confusion regarding what is waste and what is textile diversion.


Background
During the city’s 2017-2018 curbside collection audit, just over three per cent of textile material was found in either the recycling or waste carts in curbside collection alone. This equates to over 200 tonnes of material that could have potentially been diverted from the annual waste stream and landfill.

September 3, 2019 - A new partnership between the City of Timmins and Talize Inc. aims to benefit everyone by diverting textiles that end up in the landfill and contributing to the Children’s Wish Foundation, at zero cost to and with no labour involvement from the City and its taxpayers.

This new pilot program (or experimental trial) will include a curbside collection service beginning Monday, September 9 for all those with curbside waste collection. Items collected will include used clothing, footwear and linens, as well as damaged or ripped textiles. In the next couple of weeks, residents with curbside collection will receive a clear plastic bag and a flyer directly from Talize Inc. with further instructions and links to helpful information. Any other clear bag will also be acceptable in this collection.

“Moving forward, we would like to expand the program with bin throughout the City and Talize will also be reaching out to private properties for bins. Once some data is collected there will be many opportunities for growth within this program,” explained City of Timmins Environmental Coordinator Christina Beaton. “One of the areas we are highlighting with this partnership is that ripped textiles and those no longer viable for resale will not be landfilled but rather sent to a textile recycling facility.”

During the city’s 2017-2018 curbside collection audit, just over three per cent of textile material was found in either the recycling or waste carts in curbside collection alone. This equates to over 200 tonnes of material that could have potentially been diverted from the annual waste stream and landfill.

“In order to reduce waste sent to landfill, the city is continuously looking to expand all diversion programs,” said Mayor George Pirie. “This partnership is wonderful for everyone involved, directly and indirectly. Not only is it great for our community, it is great for our planet.”

The City of Timmins continues to encourage the use of the Timmins Recyclepedia app which allows residents to sign up for pick up reminders. The app also notifies residents when there is a delay or change in the curbside collection schedule and offers helpful tips on how to responsibly dispose of waste. Textile program notifications are also integrated into the app, as textile collection dates will differ from regular curbside collection to avoid any confusion regarding what is waste and what is textile diversion.

Think global, act local
According to the London Sustainability Exchange “the textile industry is one of the most polluting, unethical and wasteful industries on earth. It’s actually the second most polluting industry after oil…Official figures regarding the amount of clothing produced each year do not exist, but it is estimated that between 80 and 100 billion pieces of clothing are produced each year. That is a lot of hidden waste. The US has, for instance, generated 15 million tonnes of textile waste each year for the past 20 years. There are 320 million inhabitants in the USA; that’s almost 47 pieces of clothing per inhabitant per year. …The UK sent 235 million items of clothing to landfill. This is quite an outrage, especially when we know that almost 100% of clothing items are recyclable.”

Timmins, ON – At the Association of Municipalities of Ontario’s Annual Conference in Ottawa, Mayor Pirie met with Minister Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. 

“The Great Clay Belt is Ontario’s next great economic opportunity.  The Great Clay Belt has potentially more arable land than Manitoba.  Changes in climate and advancements in agricultural techniques and technology make the condition right for a significant agricultural expansion in northeastern Ontario that would mirror what we have already seen occur across the border in northern Quebec,” explained Mayor Pirie.  “We have asked for Minister Hardeman’s support as we continue to explore and develop agricultural opportunities in the region along with our industry partners.”

The Great Clay Belt’s 10.2 million acres offers the opportunity for large scale farming for export markets.  Timmins with working alongside the Northeast Community Network to realize the economic opportunity this presents.

Timmins, ON – Earlier today, Mayor Pirie had the opportunity to meet with the Chief of Staff for the Honourable Jeff Yurek, Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks at the Association for Municipalities of Ontario’s Annual Conference in Ottawa.  

“From the environmental, financial, logistical, stakeholder and regulator perspectives, waste management is a highly challenging issue for Timmins and for communities all across the province,” said Mayor George Pirie.  “Minister Yurek’s staff understands this and we discussed the government’s plans to transform the system and move responsibility to the producers of waste.  Waste management is a complex problem and we need to be at the forefront of finding solutions to Ontario’s waste problems.”

Ontario generates nearly a tonne of waste per person each year.  Waste diversion is Ontario has stalled at 30%, seeing 70% of that waste ending up in municipal landfills.  By reducing and diverting waste from landfill we can make the economy more productive.  According to the Conference Board of Canada, every 1,000 tonnes of waste diverted from landfill generates seven full-time jobs, $360,000 in wages and more than $700,000 in gross domestic product (GDP).

August 6, 2019 - Once again, Timmins will play host to an international gathering of scientists deploying high-altitude experiments. France’s Centre National d’Etude Spatiale (CNES) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA)will be looking to the skies of Timmins again this year, to complete another Stratospheric Balloon launch campaign.

Timmins is a favoured site of the scientific community due to its latitude, wind and weather conditions, on-site infrastructure and geography.

In August 2018, the CNES and CSA signed a letter of intent to continue working with the City of Timmins – expressing their intent to extend the implementation arrangement, considering the possibility of including new elements for the benefit of their respective user communities. In August 2019, the teams will be returning to Timmins to complete another four launches.

“Last year, five stratospheric balloon launches occurred in Timmins, with experiments ranging from climate change studies to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) projects,” explained Mayor George Pirie. “The City of Timmins welcomes back the international scientific community, and we all look forward to another year of successful stratospheric balloon launches.”

August 2, 2019 - The Township of Black River-Matheson and the Town of Iroquois Falls have recently contracted with the City of Timmins to offer interim professional planning and building review and inspection services.

This partnership stems from the challenges facing many small municipalities to find and retain qualified professionals to deliver important, mandated services. Under the contract, the City of Timmins will be compensated for providing key assistance as it relates to delivering professional planning services under the Ontario Planning Act, and professional review and inspection services under the Ontario Building Code Act to these neighbouring communities.

“Helping our neighbours is just what Northern communities do,” said Timmins Mayor George Pirie, who strongly supports the new partnership. “This initiative also helps to reinforce the significance of the City of Timmins as a regional services hub and strengthens partnerships within the region.”

Mayor Gilles Laderoute stressed that “the Township of Black River-Matheson is committed in finding efficiencies that have a meaningful impact to service delivery for our residents. This partnership allows our staff and residents access to additional professional services we could simply not afford on our own. We are now able to access a wide scope of expertise that the City of Timmins can provide that will meet our residents’ expectations. Council, during its priority session, determined building and planning services as one of our key priorities. This priority was completely in-line with what our residents stated during a community wide customer satisfaction survey. As Mayor, my role is to align priorities of Council and keep us moving in a positive path forward. Our Council and CAO worked closely to bring this opportunity to fruition.”

The Town of Iroquois Falls Mayor Pat Britton indicated that “due to the retirement of our Chief Building Official we have decided to contract out to Timmins the Interim Professional Planning and Building Review and Inspection Services. Unfortunately, we lack the resources of Planning and Building Departments in-house. This agreement will provide an enhanced level of service to our residents. During my campaign, part of my platform was to seek new partnerships in the region to enhance all of our communities where possible. As we move forward I hope more opportunities arise where we can partner with other municipalities to help each other move forward. That way we can make our region stronger and more resilient.”

The City of Timmins invites sign companies to submit a proposal to construct two “Timmins” signs. The first sign is to be located at the Timmins Transit bus terminal located at 54 Spruce Street South. The second sign will be located at the Timmins Museum National Exhibition Centre at 325 Second Avenue.

The goal of the signage project is the acquisition of specialized promotional signage. Current trends point towards the establishment of photo friendly spaces in many communities. To achieve this, many municipalities are establishing large community signs that are located and designed to promote public interaction with the signage itself by taking “selfie” photos.

Interested proponents must submit six (6) original hard copies of their proposal by 2:00:00 p.m. (EDT) on Thursday September 5, 2019 in a sealed envelope clearly identified as to the contents, to:

Mr. Steph Palmateer, City Clerk
City of Timmins, City Hall
220 Algonquin Blvd. E.
Timmins, Ontario P4N 1B3
Tel: (705) 360-2600, Ext. 2402

Please note that the City reserves the right to accept or reject any or all submissions. The City will not accept any submission received after the deadline set out above.

For additional information and a detailed copy of the Request for Proposal concerning this opportunity, please visit the City of Timmins Tenders, Bids & RFPs page. If proponents do not have an account, one must be created. Proponents who will be submitting a proposal must register as a plan taker for this RFP.

The proponent shall be required to be registered as a plan taker. If the proponent is not registered as a plan taker for this bid, the submission will not be considered.

July 19, 2019 - A number of essential services workers have made their way back to their homes in Keewaywin First Nation in order to prepare for the safe return of the rest of the community over the remainder of this week.

A total of 163 evacuees have been hosted at the Ramada Inn since July 4, due to a forest fire in Western Canada, and it is expected that most will return home on Saturday from both Timmins and Sioux Lookout.

“This was the third community hosted by the City of Timmins this year, and I am very proud that we have the resources to be able to offer this safe haven for those being forced out of their homes,” said Mayor George Pirie. “Once again, the city was able to answer the call for assistance from our upper levels of government by accepting evacuees displaced by this sizable forest fire, and accomplished it in a way that was welcoming to the people from Keewaywin, respectful of their Indigenous traditions, and supportive of their health and social needs. We would like to thank all the community partners who assisted in ensuring the best possible experience for a community displaced so far from their homes.”

Earlier this spring, the City of Timmins also hosted residents from Keshechewan due to flooding, and Pikangikum due to fire. Evacuation partners include Gervais Emergency Consulting, the Red Cross, Ramada Inn, Timmins Fire Department, Timmins Police Service, Timmins Victor M. Power Airport, and the Porcupine Health Unit.

July 11, 2019 - Tuesday evening, Timmins City Council approved By-law No. 2019-8356, approving the sale of surplus municipal lands located at 1915 Highway 655 (the former Toyota testing site), to Amen Holdings Inc. (a holding company within Milman Industries Inc.) in the amount of $1,151,238.56 plus HST.

“This is great news for the City of Timmins,” said Mayor George Pirie. “Milman Industries Inc. has the potential to bring additional employment to the community, and has a an excellent reputation of growing and evolving to meet the diverse needs of its customers, as well as the needs of the Northern Ontario Mining and International Industrial sectors.”

Director of Community and Development Services Mark Jensen explained that the property will be initially occupied by Roztek Environmental (an industrial maintenance company servicing Timmins and the surrounding areas since 1989). Additional companies, under the Milman Industries Inc. umbrella, would eventually follow, and it is expected this growth will add 100 new jobs to the community.

In response to concerns that the site would be used for waste management or disposal purposes. Jensen confirmed that City of Timmins Zoning By-law 2011-7100 defines what uses are permitted on the subject lands, and based on its current “Medium Industrial (Class II) (EA-I2)” zoning, a waste storage or disposal site would not be permitted.

“Should this type of use be proposed, both an Official Plan and Zoning by-law amendment would be required along with approvals from the Ministry of Environment. This would represent a fairly extensive endeavor,” explained Jensen. “Should this process be initiated in the future, the public would have an opportunity to provide their input before Council renders its decision. Despite this, and as an extra precaution to satisfy Council’s concerns, staff included a condition of sale stating that ‘the Buyer covenants and warrants with the Seller that it shall in no event utilize the Property as a waste disposal site.’ The purchaser has provided Planning staff with written authorization agreeing to the proposed land sale conditions.”

Mahaffy, LawlorJuly 4, 2019 - The Timmins Fire Department has recently seen someBeaven, Baker, Lawlor dedicated professionals climb further up the ladder.

Gary Baker, who has been a very dedicated firefighter and asset to the City of Timmins Fire Department has been promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. Baker’s career with the department began in 1999, and he became a career firefighter in 2001.

Dave Mahaffy, who joined the department in 1991, became a career firefighter in 1998, and promoted to Lieutenant in 2014, has climbed to the rank of Captain.

July 4, 2019 - The City of Timmins is preparing to accept 250 evacuees from Keewaywin First Nation, who are currently threatened by a large forest fire.

Fire Red Lake 23, located approximately 12 kilometers from Keewaywin, began June 15 and has grown to an estimated 55,000 hectares, under what the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) describes as extreme burning conditions. The fire is listed as not under control.

Once again, the city will be working with its partners at Gervais Emergency Consulting, the Red Cross, the Ramada Inn, and the Victor M. Power Airport to make the necessary arrangements during this state of emergency.

“The City of Timmins, its partners and its residents have been wonderful in accepting and accommodating two large groups who were unfortunately displaced from their homes and communities already this year,” said Mayor George Pirie. “We are fortunate to have the resources available and are able to quickly reconvene the Emergency Management team to assist another northern community in its time of need.”

Five flights are scheduled to arrive today, with two additional flights on Friday, for an approximate total of 250 evacuees. The community has a total population of approximately 410.

If a person or public body would otherwise have an ability to appeal the decision of Council of the City of Timmins to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal but the person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the City of Timmins before the by-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting, or make written submissions to the City of Timmins before the by-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to do so.
