KS – August 3, 2017


 

Week in Review

Crime Stoppers

I am proud to be partnering with the National Capital Area Crime Stoppers as we launch a reminder initiative encouraging residents to report crime in our community. Crimes of opportunity like theft from vehicles, sheds and other property crime can be impacted by taking time to lock and secure your belongings.

Crime Stoppers would encourage anyone with information on these or other crimes to come forward to police or anonymously submit tip information by calling 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or visit www.crimestoppers.ca to submit your tip online.  Remember, Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to call display, record our calls or ask for your identity.  Your tip may qualify for a cash reward of up to $2000.00.

 

Dog Waste – It’s your business

Please remember that when out walking your dog that waste is not supposed to be deposited in public waste receptacles found in parks or on sidewalks.  This summer our park garbage cans have been overflowing with dog waste that is left there and not taken home with the pet owner.

This creates not only an unsightly mess but a serious health hazard for humans and other people’s pets as bags break and the waste is left behind. Pet owners are responsible to pick up after their own dogs; therefore, we encourage you to call 3-1-1 to report any violations to Bylaw services.  As your Councillor, I have asked Bylaw services to monitor the problem areas more closely to protect your family and your pets.

  1. Pick it up
    • Use a bag or a shovel to pick up the waste and take it home for disposal.
  2. Disposal
    • The best method of disposal is to flush waste down the toilet. But don’t flush the bag. Toilets flow to the sewage treatment plant or septic tanks. Both systems are equipped to handle this kind of waste. Flushing poop also helps us divert waste from the landfill site.
