Puslinch Township reopens parks, trails, greenspaces

Officials say users must 'adhere to all physical distancing requirements' or amenities will again be closed

ABERFOYLE – Puslinch Township has now reopened its parks, trails and greenspaces for public use.

The move, announced on May 15, came with one major stipulation from the municipality.

“We strongly encourage everyone using [them] to respect the use of the facilities and adhere to all physical distancing requirements,” states the township press release.

“Failure to do so, may result in the township being directed to close these areas again.”

Puslinch playgrounds and sports fields remain closed, as do all other township facilities and buildings.

The municipality’s press release states officials “are doing our best to adapt how we conduct business and serve our community, while protecting the safety of our staff and residents.

“Township officials are working closely with Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health to respond to the situation.”

Puslinch staff continues to serve residents by electronic means only; email services@puslinch.ca or admin@puslinch.ca or call 519-763-1226 and leave a detailed message.

Taxes can be paid through financial institutions via internet or telephone banking and burn permits and dog tags can be purchased online.

There is also a secure 24/7 mail drop box at the township office, 7404 Wellington Road 34 in Aberfoyle.

“The township intends to make every effort possible to uphold a strong level of customer service during this time,” states the press release.

“This includes continuity of essential services such as fire and road maintenance on a priority basis to support our community.”

Officials say up-to-date information will be posted on the township’s website.
