City of Ottawa’s Water, Wastewater and Stormwater Rate Study – Update

Posted on

The City of Ottawa hosted 8 public consultation sessions across Ottawa between March 21 and April 7 as part of the development of a new rate structure to fund its water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure.

The feedback received through the consultation process has been collected into a report by One World Inc., who was contracted by the City to facilitate and take notes at each of the consultation sessions.

A copy of the report can be found here: Consultation Report

Funds raised will be donated to Hospice Care Ottawa. Recognizing the monetary needs of this very worthy charity, our goal is to make a significant donation which we can only accomplish with the generous support of women like you.  I have personal experience with these services and can’t stress enough the caring professionalism we encountered.

Registration forms for non-members are available at Carleton Golf Pro Shop or Office and also at our community mailbox.  Cost is $100 per golfer including golf, cart, lunch, dinner and prizes payable by credit card or cash.  You can sign up as a foursome or individual and we’ll match you up in groups.  If you have any questions, please contact Pat Taylor, Marina Drive   613-290-0788

We hope that you will be able to support us in this way and look forward to golfing with you.

With Best Regards,
