KS – October 8, 2015

Week in Review

Thank you to all who came out last Friday to Saunders Farm for the 5th Annual Scaring is Caring event in support of the Youth Services Bureau.  $5 from each ticket sold will go to support youth mental health initiatives.  A special thank you to the Saunders family for hosting, Councillor Shad Qadri for his support of this event by sponsoring a bus from Stittsville and to Cindy Cutts from Proud to be Me for helping to organize and fill the buses!

Thank you to St. Paul’s Church for inviting me to their silent auction and spaghetti dinner last weekend in support of the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice.  This dedicated group of volunteers raised $6728 with this event!

Thank you to all who have provided comments on our budget consultation link at www.councillorallanhubley.ca


Hydro One tree cutting behind Bridlewood Elementary School

The trees and brush being removed in Bridlewood along the hydro corridor is being done by Hydro One and was conducted as part of their transmission line maintenance program. Unfortunately, the work took place on Hydro One’s easement and was deemed necessary to maintain the property for servicing, as well as to ensure safety for the public and staff to facilitate Hydro related operations. This work is usually done when there is a risk of interference in the delivery of power or difficulty for workers to quickly access the equipment.  Unfortunately, the municipality has no say in the activities of provincial bodies so we had no means to stop the work or suggest a different approach.
