I think both Facebook and Twitter would be great instant information options.
Reminders such as road closures, emergencies, on going construction projects/delays/progress. Accidents and alternative routes for traffic would be great.
Also, it would really help during 3-5 p.m. for some police presence/directing of traffic at Third Line and Speers Road for the next few weeks, as Fourth Line is under construction. Sadly, there will be many accidents and near misses in the next few weeks.

Great ideas. We’ll continue to provide updates on social media about town road closures and construction. Accidents/alternate route information for traffic usually come from Halton Regional Police Service. We will retweet/share when appropriate.
RE: Fourth Line construction
Thanks for your input. We’ve passed along your concern to staff for review.
