TECUMSEH USES PROGRESSIVE WEB APP TO HELP LOCAL BUSINESSES

The Town of Tecumseh is proud to announce the launch of new channels on their progressive web app to promote local businesses, events and opportunities. This follows the launch of the Tecumseh App in August 2016, the first municipality in North America to do so, aimed at actively engaging its residents.

The Tecumseh App will now feature two new channels for businesses: “Now Hiring” and “Services”. These new channels follow the expansion of existing channels “Where to Eat” and “What to Do”. All four channels provide local businesses the opportunity to promote themselves, share information about the community and encourage people to shop and play in Tecumseh.

“We are excited to launch this second phase of our municipal app for both residents and businesses in Town,” said Tony Haddad, Chief Administrative Officer for the Town of Tecumseh. “Our goal when launching this app was to connect with our residents and businesses easily through a mobile network. Today’s launch now allows businesses to have a one-stop outreach.”

The cost to use the app for businesses is free for 2017. Interested business owners can upload videos, images and content they wish to promote by visiting www.tecumsehapp.ca/upload. All submissions will be subject to review for appropriateness prior to posting. Priority will be given to business promoting employment opportunities, events, and providing promotional offers for Tecumseh businesses. Anyone with questions is welcome to contact the Town at 519-735-2184 Ext. 150.

Town App“We are excited by the innovation being shown by the Town of Tecumseh. They were an early-adopter of Progressive Web App technology and since their launch other large brands such as Booking.com, The Guardian and AliExpress have also begun to use this technology,” said Karolyn Hart, Chief Operating Officer of InspireHUB Technologies. “We built the IHUBApp using progressive web app technology to provide an easy to use platform to get information out quickly and easily. Our work with the Town of Tecumseh has proven to North America that progressive web apps can benefit municipalities anywhere.”

The app can be easily added to any mobile device and is available whether the user is connected to the internet or not on most devices. Details on how to register as a user and save the app to a home screen are provided at www.tecumsehapp.ca.

REMINDER OF CHANGE TO HARD-SIDED WASTE CONTAINERS

The Town would like to remind all residents of the upcoming change to the household waste collection. Plastic garbage bags will not be accepted. After January 1, 2017, household waste must be placed in a hard-sided container with a lid.

Information on acceptable hard-sided containers is available on the Town’s website at www.tecumseh.ca/townhall/departmental-services/environmental/refuse_containers. Residents should mark containers and lids with their address to prevent theft or loss.

This change to collection will affect the first waste pick-up scheduled for January 5, 2017. Any garbage not placed in a hard-sided container with a watertight lid will not be collected and property owners may be subject to fines. Hard sided containers is the only change to household waste collection at this time.

Items such as mattresses, couches, chair and similar materials will continue to be collected. However, we encourage all residents to consider recycling larger items with various local organizations that accept used furniture and clothing.

Residents and businesses are responsible for obtaining their own acceptable hard-sided garbage containers. Many local hardware stores, department stores or other retailers provide various types of hard-sided garbage containers. Containers can also be rented from independent local suppliers for a small monthly fee.

Detailed information on garbage collection can be found on the Town website, and the Town App www.tecumsehapp.ca.

Questions regarding the elimination of plastic bags from the list of acceptable garbage containers can be directed to the Public Works & Environmental Services Department at 519-735-2184 Ext. 142.

SAFETY REMINDERS FOR THE HOLIDAYS

The Town of Tecumseh, the OPP and Tecumseh Fire Services have a number of helpful safety tips:

Snow Removal:
* All snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks by property owners. It is illegal to push snow out onto the street [reference OHTA]. Vehicles must be removed from Town streets to allow for snow removal.
* Snow removal takes time especially in heavy accumulation. Please be patient.
* Snow plows have limited control of the amount and direction of the snow coming off the blade and create limited visibility while plowing. Never pass a snow plow and keep a safe distance behind them.

Fire Safety:
* Always ensure electrical connections between decorations and outlets are clear and in good condition. Do not use severed or frayed cords.
* Stay in the kitchen when cooking, drink responsibly and install and regularly test carbon monoxide and smoke alarms.
* Ensure your furnace and fireplaces are in proper working order and have been cleaned.
* In the event of a power outage, never run a generator in a closed or confined space; make sure it is well ventilated.

Personal & Property Safety:
* Be aware of your surroundings. Make sure you are parked in a well-lit area and never leave your vehicle unattended while running. Do not leave purses or purchases unattended and when loading your car, make sure your keys are in your hands or secured at all times.
* When using a bank machine, make sure they are visible and in well-lit areas.
* Don’t open or unlock your door for strangers and verify the identity of service persons.
* Make sure all bushes are pruned and keep outside lights on when going out for an evening. Lock all doors, windows and gates, and don’t leave remote openers in cars parked outside.

Safety on the roads:
* Drive according to the conditions and check the weather before you go.
* Do not use your cellphone while driving. Designate a passenger in the vehicle to take calls and texts or usethe hands-free option on your phone.
* Do not drink and drive. Make a plan to arrive safely. Designate a driver or call a cab.

Please contact 911 in the event of an emergency.
