Ward 2 official website At the start of 2017, all Calgary City Councillors took a 2.49% wage roll back. I am very supportive of this decision as I believe that The City needs to be responsible with spending so that we can prevent taxes and fees from increasing.

 The City’s snow removal crews have been busy this winter ensuring our roads are in a safe and reasonable winter driving condition. One method that they use on residential streets is “flat-blading,” which flattens the snow to a hard pack so that it’s easier to drive on. One result of flat-blading is the build-up of snow along the side of a roadway, also known as windrow. Plow operators make every attempt to keep driveways clear, or keep windrows as small as possible, but any snow buildup on driveways that does occur is the responsibility of the adjacent property owner to remove, much like sidewalk shovelling.

 The Calgary Awards is one of the largest citizen recognition programs in our city which recognizes outstanding achievements and contributions made by Calgarians in the previous year. Each year, individuals, corporations, community groups and organizations are nominated in five major award categories, for a total of 13 awards. The Calgary Awards are for Calgarians. Individuals, businesses, not-for-profit organizations, community groups and other organizations can all be nominated. For specific eligibility requirements, how to nominate someone in your community and for more information visit: Nominations close on Wednesday, March 1, 2017.
