KS – August 31, 2017


Week in Review

It was great to see so many residents out this past weekend at the Trailwest Community Association’s Summerfest event in Kristina Kiss Park.  Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make this annual gathering a huge success!


Advanced Leadership Program

Congratulations to the 11 youth in Kanata South who successfully completed the Advanced Leadership Program offered by the City of Ottawa’s Recreation, Cultural and Facility Services Department.

This program is designed to assist youth ages 15 to 18 to develop strong leadership skills, to acquire job skills in the recreation field, and to experience a work placement in city programs.   In addition to providing each participant with an invaluable summer experience, this program also assists the Department in training their potential employees of the future.

Please visit www.ottawa.ca to learn more about this program.


2018 Budget Consultation

The 2018 Budget webpage was launched this week on Ottawa.ca. Under the ‘Have Your Say’ area, residents can find information on how to get involved and provide feedback on the budget.

Budget Planning tool- Available for the second year, this interactive software tool provides residents with the opportunity to play the role of a politician or administrator by determining how they would prioritize budget funding for each category. To show the impact of their decisions, it will also show how their choices would affect the budget rate and their individual property taxes.

The budget simulator tool will remain live until the budget is tabled on November 8th.

Save the Date – there will be a joint west end Budget Consultation meeting held at the Kanata Recreation Complex (Hall A) on Thursday October 5th (time TBD).  Come out and share your thoughts on the 2018 Budget with your Councillor and City Finance staff.
