To help local families and businesses while taking some of the sting out of a holiday-season parking ticket, the Town of BWG will once again be running the Toys for Tickets program.
Anyone who receives a parking ticket from the Town of BWG from December 1st to 14th for parking on the street during the winter overnight ban can “pay” the ticket by donating an equivalent amount in new toys.
Vehicles are prohibited from parking on the road from 2:00 to 6:00 a.m. from December 1 through April 1 on all BWG roads (except at the “four corners” area of Holland/Barrie/Simcoe, where the ban is from 3:00 to 6:00 a.m.).
Toys must be new, unwrapped and in their original packaging, and the store receipt showing the item and dollar amount must be provided. To encourage support of local businesses, toys must be purchased at a store in BWG. The price of the toy or toys (including taxes) must total at least the amount of the fine.
To take advantage of the program, tickets and toys must be brought in by December 17, 2020 to the Town of BWG Administration Office located at 100 Dissette St., Units 7&8. The office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please remember to wear a face covering and observe physical distancing guidelines.
Toys will be distributed to local families in need by the Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions.
