Week in Review

I will continue to post community events, updates and information on my website (www.CouncillorAllanHubley.ca) and on my Facebook page. Please email me at Allan.Hubley@Ottawa.ca if you would like to be signed up for my electronic newsletter that we will begin to send out monthly this year and as always, please contact me should you have any municipal concerns or issues.

Woodlot Rehabilitation Program

As part of the Woodlot Rehabilitation Program and Ottawa’s Emerald Ash Borer Strategy, Forestry Services will be working in the Katimavik Woods located at 7 Katimavik Road and Cattail Creek Park located at 38 Chimo Drive over the next few months. The rehabilitation program will begin with removal of dead and hazardous trees and will end with a tree planting in 2018. The tree removal work is scheduled to mid January and should be completed by the end of the month. During the removal work and for the duration of this portion of the project, pedestrians will not be allowed to access specific areas of the Katimavik Woods and Cattail Creek Park (EAB signage, barricades and on-site personnel will be restricting access).

Residents living near the removal work will receive a notice in the mail outlining the work to de done.  Further details can be found on my website under the information tab (Parks Environment/EAB)

Fire Hydrants and Catch Basins

There are over 22,000 fire hydrants located in the City of Ottawa. If a fire hydrant is located on your property, you are responsible for ensuring nothing on your land obstructs access to the hydrant. During the winter months, fire hydrants can become covered in snow which adds extra time in an emergency situation if Fire Services must first dig out the hydrant.

If you have a fire hydrant located on your property, please try to keep the hydrant clear of snow so that it is accessible. Please do not pile snow over or against hydrants while clearing pathways and driveways in the winter. Doing so may delay access in emergency situations and is against the City’s Water By Law.

When we experience milder weather as we did last week, it is important to ensure that any catch basins in front of your property are kept free of snow and debris so that the water can drain properly and not collect on the roadway.

Catch basins are identified by a yellow “T” bar painted on the roadway.
