Free parking

Posted on Thursday, January 07, 2021 08:30 AM

On January 6, 2021, the Dysart Emergency Control Group decided to keep the parking meters in the Village of Haliburton covered.  The meters will remain covered until the end of March.  

Traditionally the covers are removed from the meters within the first week of January; however, given that 2021 will be a year much different from other years, the Control Group thought it was best to leave the covers on. Help support local businesses by shopping local this year.

According to the International Associations of Firefighters "In half of reported home fires in which smoke alarms were present but did not operate, the batteries had been removed or the alarm was disconnected due to dead battery alerts or nuisance alarms. Working smoke alarms decrease the risk of dying in reported home fires by nearly half according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
