Week in Review

I would like to thank the residents who came out this past weekend to spruce up the Cairns on Castlefrank Road at Hazeldean as part of the Cleaning the Capital campaign. The Cairns are a significant part of Glen Cairn’s unique history. To find out why, visit the Hazeldean Library and ask for the History of Glen Cairn by Emma McLellan.


Cleaning the Capital

I would like to encourage residents to please register your community clean dates at www.ottawa.ca or by calling 3-1-1.  The fall campaign runs from September 15th to October 15th and you have until October 31st to submit your clean report.  Kanata South has won the fall the Capital award 4 times for most volunteers…let’s set a record and make it 5!  Please let my office know when your clean up is scheduled and we will do our best to visit with giveaways and to thank you for your efforts in keeping our community clean, green, litter and graffiti-free, allan.hubley@ottawa.ca.


2016 Budget Consultations

This is the last week to share your thoughts on the upcoming 2016 Budget by providing your comments and suggestions to my Budget Consultation page on our website at www.councillorallanhubley.com.   I will be collecting your suggestions for the month of September and information on the most common topics/issues that arise will be listed on my website as trends emerge. It is important that I have your feedback as I want to represent your thoughts and ideas accurately at City Hall.
