‘Tis the season for thankfulness, so I’ll kick off this week’s post with a thank you for this engaged community and the regular input I receive from you, most recently about scooters.

Updates from Letty – October 25, 2019

We’re in the home stretch of the campaign season.

We had no City Council meeting this week and will resume next Tuesday after Indigenous People’s Day*. Rather than take a week off – this week’s post will be a hodge-podge of important PSAs, links to surveys on the Environment and Wayfinding (fancy word for signs to help people find […]
