Town of Minto Municipal Office to Remain Closed Indefinitely

Town of Minto Municipal Office to Remain Closed Indefinitely

OCTOBER 29, 2020


The Town of Minto continues to keep public safety as top priority during the unique circumstances surrounding COVID-19. As the numbers continue to climb, the Town of Minto remains devoted to ensuring all safety measures are followed, to protect our staff and the public.

At this time, we have made the difficult decision to keep the Municipal Office closed indefinitely. We are continuing to monitor the situation, and encourage the public to check traditional and social media, as well as the Town of Minto website for updates.

As always, continuity of essential services such as fire, water, wastewater, and road maintenance will be ensured. The remainder of the municipal staff including building services, recreation, administration and economic development will be continuing to work from various alternate locations, to ensure that staff are distanced properly.  Residents are still urged to call the municipal office, follow the appropriate phone prompts and leave a voicemail. Staff will be checking their voicemails remotely, and will return calls when possible. If residents know the email address of the person they need to reach; electronic communication is encouraged. All staff emails are listed under the Contact Us section of the town website at

Individuals who have questions or concerns regarding COVID-19 should contact Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health at 1-800-265-7293 or visit

The Town of Minto wishes to thank the public for their ongoing understanding during this unique circumstance.
