Safety protocols in place for reopening of city facilities in Brampton
At a recent conference, Councillor Martin Medeiros announced that on Wednesday, September 9, several Brampton facilities will be reopening.
These city facilities include City Hall, Williams Parkway Operations Centre, city offices, Flower City Community Campus, and all other city administrative buildings that were previously closed.
"Over the past few months, our teams have been working hard to put in place enhanced protocols and safety measures so we're ready and prepared to reopen," said Medeiros.
Occupancy in these facilities will be limited to 25%, in line with provincial requirements, and the city will continue to provide its services online wherever possible.
In-person city council meetings will resume the following week on Wednesday, September 16, with City Hall's council chambers reopening to the public as well.
Meetings will be restricted to 50 members of the public, and residents who wish to attend must pre-book their visit online. The city will continue to stream council meetings via its website.
The City will continue to provide online options for joining, presenting, and delegating at all Committee and City Council meetings as well.
Further, City recreation facilities, including Indoor pools, fitness amenities, and limited general programs, will reopen to the public starting September 7 by reservation only.
“Thank you to our community for their efforts in helping us get to this stage. We have continued to follow the advice of our public health experts through focusing on a cautious phased reopening and reintroduction of in-person services. While this is a new reality for us all, we are working to make this a safe and seamless transition for everyone,” Mayor Patrick Brown said in a news release.
