Celebrating 150 "Acts of Kindness"

Celebrating Ontario 150 is a wonderful opportunity to promote kindness in our community. The Municipality of Dutton Dunwich is encouraging children, adults, organizations, clubs and churches etc., to submit their “Acts of Kindness” to the Municipality so we can share how uplifting and rewarding it can be to complete a simple “Act of Kindness” for each other.

Notice to Residents and Property Owners Regarding Noxious Weeds

The main purpose of the Weed Control Act, R.S.O. 1990, is to reduce the impact of noxious weeds on the industries of agriculture and horticulture.  Primarily this act applies to agricultural and horticultural lands that generate income or other benefits to agriculture; this excludes lawns, gardens and private areas for personal enjoyment and leisure.

Under the Weed Control Act, R.S.O. 1990, Chapter W.5 Sections 3, 16 and 23 that you are requested to destroy all noxious weeds on your property.

If you think you have Giant hogweed on your property or if you see it in your community please call the Invading Species Hotline at 1-800-563-7711 or report your sighting online at http://www.invadingspecies.com You will be asked to send in photos for identification. Do not collect parts of the plant for identification.

In Urban Areas

Sections 3, 13, 16 and 18 do not apply to noxious weeds or weed seeds that are far enough away from any land used for agricultural or horticultural purposes, as they do not interfere with that use.

All properties within the Municipality of Dutton Dunwich are hereby requested to be in compliance with the Weed Control Act by the 14th day of June 2017 and throughout the growing season.

New Rules for Flying Drones in Canada

In December 2016, Transport Canada announced new safety measures and requirements for the use of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs).  Given that many municipalities use UAVs – commonly referred to as “drones” -  for site assessment at fire scenes and for other emergency situations, the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management is providing links to the following federal government Web pages outlining these new measures and requirements:

- News release, December 21, 2016

- Drone Safety

- Flying your drone safely and legally

- Getting permission to fly your drone
