Mayor's Message

On behalf of King Township Council, welcome to the March edition of the King Bulletin.

As the weather begins to warm up and the Province relaxes some health guidelines, many people will be looking for things to do outdoors.

I’m pleased to report our Cold Creek Maple Syrup Fest is back on this year. It takes place Saturday, March 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cold Creek Conservation Area. The day will feature a pancake breakfast hosted by the Rotary Club along with vendors, guided hikes, face painting, outdoor games and more.

The cost is $10 a person or $35 for a family of four.

The Taste of Main food event in Schomberg continues until March 6.

Seven dining establishments on Schomberg’s Main Street are collaborating for the inaugural Taste of Main prix fixe dining event. A prix fixe (a French term meaning “fixed price”) is a menu that offers a full meal at a set rate.

The event truly has something for everyone with breakfast and lunch options at both cafés, and lunch and dinner options from all other restaurants ranging from $10 to $50.

The restaurants have also each created unique signature cocktails to commemorate the event. All the menus, prices and dining times can be found at

No matter what you plan on doing as the weather warms up, please stay safe and shop locally as much as you can.


Mayor Steve Pellegrini

Seasonal Operations & Updates

Winter Parking Restrictions in effect from November 1st to April 15th with picture of snow covered cars

Winter road and sidewalking clearing

King is geared up and ready to tackle the snow and ice this winter.

Our winter maintenance crews are responsible for clearing over 320 kilometres of roads. The Township's fleet includes two graders, 12 plows—complete with sand and salt units—and three contracted sidewalk plows.

King will remove snow from roads when severe accumulations affect two-way traffic and the ability for on-street parking. This may take several days after accumulations occur and is performed on a priority basis.

First priority is given to commercial areas and areas where safety is a concern.

Residents are reminded to avoid parking on the street and from obstructing the sidewalks so snowplowing and snow removal crews can operate effectively.

Some snowstorms last many hours or have initial freezing rain that turns into snow. In these conditions, a re-plowing of priority streets may be required to maintain traffic safety. Re-plowing may occur before road crews can move on to other local streets. The priority of snow clearing is based on Minimum Maintenance Standards Regulations.

Due to varied shapes, sizes and presence of centre islands, cul-de-sacs require specialized snow removal equipment and procedures. The Township road system currently contains many cul-de-sacs and we understand the frustration that can occur for affected residents.

Most routes are completed within a 12-hour period. Clearance times may be longer when snowfall is exceptionally heavy, there are complications due to freezing rain, many cars are parked on the street or crews are working during peak traffic times. In accordance with Ministry of Labour Regulations, drivers cannot work more than 13 hours without a rest period. This can impact snow clearance time.
