Announcements

Here are recent Announcements from various sources, including the City of Ottawa and our River Ward City Councillor.

Part of an email received from the Giver show: “If you would like to come out and meet us, we will be in Ottawa on June 1st at the Carleton Heights Community Centre from 4-8 pm for our casting and volunteer open house. We will be seeing kids on a first come first serve basis but if you can’t make it that’s totally understandable and your email application will still be considered.

We would also like to stress that even if you are not cast as one of the main Giver Kids, you would still be more than welcome to come to the park this summer to volunteer on the build and help the community.

The City of Ottawa has announced that

"A Community Outreach and Consultation Session (to provide 
information on the new playground at Mooney's Bay park) will 
take place on (Tuesday) May 31 at Riverside United Church, 
3191 Riverside Drive, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m."

The City will have subject matter experts available to answer factual questions 
about the details such as tree removals, drainage, parking, washrooms, etc.

You may find this link to a City of Ottawa webpage useful for background 
information prior to the meeting. You may also be interested in

Issue

With the mild spring weather, City crews are repairing potholes and clearing catch basins.

Key Facts

Pothole repairs

  • 18 crews are dedicated to filling potholes across the City.
  • To date in 2015, crews have filled approximately 13,500 potholes across the City.
  • It’s routine at this time of year for potholes to appear, especially with freeze-and-thaw conditions. Rain and mild temperatures following a stretch of sub-zero conditions creates stress on the asphalt road surface which can then form potholes.
  • Residents are encouraged to use the ServiceOttawa gateway at ca or call 311 to report potholes.

 

Catch basins

  • City crews are out clearing snow and ice from catch basins to facilitate water drainage and to reduce pooling.
  • Staff are concentrating on priority roads. Crews are also working on residential streets and responding to service requests as they are received.
  • With 56,000 catch basins in the city, it is appreciated if residents help by clearing catch basins near their home as much as possible and where it is safe to do so.
  • Please report catch basins covered in heavy snow and ice to the City online at ca.
