Municipality of Sioux Lookout Offers Residents New Ways to Connect 

Sioux Lookout, ON – With current COVID measures in Ontario restricting access to the Municipal Office, and staff working remotely where possible, residents of Sioux Lookout need an easy way to report problems and ask questions.

“Our doors are locked and phone calls are going directly to voice mail right now,” said Municipal Chief Administrative Officer, Michelle Larose. She adds, “We have been very busy finding new ways to keep the Municipality’s essential services running smoothly and allowing residents to contact us about important issues.”

One of these ways is the new Service Request Form on the Municipality’s website. It allows anyone to request service or report issues to any department from their computer, phone, or tablet.

Accessing the new Service Request Form is easy – either from the Contact Us page or clicking Service Request at the bottom of any page at siouxlookout.ca.

The Municipality of Sioux Lookout has also just launched the new Municipal Alert System. It makes receiving important messages simple and accessible. Residents can choose to receive notices about Council meetings, Public Works activities, recreation programs and events, service disruptions, general information, and emergency alerts, thanks to Alert Ready integration.

“This lets us get information to everyone who signs up very quickly,” says Brian MacKinnon, Manager of Corporate Services & Municipal Clerk. “You can choose text messages, voice calls, email, even push notifications to your phone. The choice is all yours.”

To get started, click Municipal Alert System under Your Local Government at siouxlookout.ca.
