With the water levels now receding, we have been fortunate in most of Ward 14. Some residences in the Ward came very close to the flood waters of the Bow, but have remained dry throughout. I want to extended my sincerest thanks for the patience of all of those who were displaced from their homes, or were without power, and to those who banded together to help out their neighbours. It has made me even more proud to call myself a Calgarian.
Our thoughts are with the communities who have been affected by the recent flooding in Calgary, and this great province of Alberta. The City of Calgary continues to work diligently in responding to the changing flood situation. Your continued support will be needed as we enter the clean-up and re-entry phase of this event.
The Aldermanic office in City Hall is one of the locations in Calgary directly impacted by floodwater. The Ward 14 office is inaccessible to my staff at the moment and we are without access to our computers and voice mail. I expect that our voice mail will be up and running within the next couple of days. In the meantime, please contact 311 for assistance and 911 in case of emergency. You can also contact me in the following ways:
The Calgary City News Blog - calgarycitynews.com - has the most up to date information on this flood event and we encourage you to check it often. Please remember that the City of Calgary remains in a state of local emergency with its first priority being your safety and well-being. Please be cautious as you re-enter flood affected areas.
