More services are reopening, and parking bylaws are being enforced again starting this week.

As part of the City of Timmins' gradual reopening during COVID-19, the Timmins Museum: National Exhibition Centre and Tourism Timmins are open again today. The museum's hours are Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursdays from 10 a.m. to noon are reserved for seniors.

At city hall, in-person services were reintroduced earlier this month. 

Parking metres are also being enforced again starting Thursday, July 2. 

Early in the pandemic, the city stopped enforcing parking metres.

When businesses started being able to open up for curbside pickup in May, the free parking was maintained at metres. However bylaw officers began enforcing the two-hour parking limit to make sure the spaces were available for customers.

If you haven't already renewed your 2019 residential burning permit, the deadline for a 2020 permit is July 1. For residents who haven't paid for their permit yet, the deadline is also July 1. 

Fire permits are $25 per year and can be bought for up to three years at a time.

Payments can be made by money order, bank draft or cheque mailed to the Timmins Fire Department at 133 Cedar St. S., Timmins, Ont., P4N 2G9. You should include your name, address, phone number and email address. 

If you're looking to cool off in this week's heat, the splash pads at Hollinger Park and South Porcupine are open.

The city announced last week that the Gillies Lake Beach is also open to the public. It is being maintained but is not supervised.
