Survey on Snow Plow Driveway Markers
The City’s By-law and Regulatory Services Department is initiating a new public consultation with respect to formalizing current guidelines for snow plow driveway markers. The guidelines are primarily intended to standardize the use, locations and appearance of these markers, while protecting residents and the City’s snow clearing equipment from unsafe installations and minimize disruptions to neighbourhoods.
Residents are encouraged to provide comments on the current guidelines by July 20, 2017. You are invited to complete an online survey or send an e-mail to Leslie Charles at firstname.lastname@example.org to let the City know what you think.
Ottawa Public Health Public Consultation
Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is asking residents, businesses and sports groups to have their say on marketing of food and beverage to children and youth in our community. Residents are encouraged to take part in OPH’s survey which is available until August 14, 2017. The results of this consultation will help OPH better understand what residents think about the marketing of food and beverages and will be used to guide future public health work in this area. You can also provide feedback by calling the OPH Information Line at 613-580-6744 or by emailing M2CY@ottawa.ca.
