    I do not agree with lowering the speed limits. We already have too many different speed limits – we go from 30KM to 50KM to 60KM. I’d rather see the same speed limit everywhere (with the exception of school/playground zones) as it is too confusing. For instance, 100 Avenue could be 50KM or it could be 60KM. On the Yellowhead Trail it could be 70KM or it could be 80KM. There isn’t always a sign stating the speed limit and with photo radar, it certainly appears to be another “cash cow” grab that could be used for the development of bike lanes that few people use!

    Mr.Knack! I am a senior in Ward 1 and I have an issue that I would like for you to read.
    I have recently for the third time put in a request to have someone from the city to look at the ground water issue in the alley behind my house in Lynnwood. I called 311 in July /18 but nothing not even a callback.I believe it’s from the heavy garbage trucks leaving deep indentations and when it rains or snows we get pools of water which affect us and the neighbour behind. I have pics to show if your interested. My address is 15627-83 Ave.

      Hi Dave. Thank you for the comment and sorry I missed this. It appears most of the comments have all been put in the spam file so I wasn’t notified of the message. We recently approved our back alley renewal program that will allow us to start reconstructing all back alleys across the city. This work will take time as we have to go across the city but in the interim, it may be worth reaching out to Councillor Sarah Hamilton as she is the Councillor for your community. My apologies again for not getting this earlier. Please let me know if you need any assistance reaching her office. Thanks again for the message.

    I posted this on the CTV Edmonton website on Tuesday October 22:
    How about we start looking at City department inefficiencies. I live in Lewis Estates; every year the City puts up a snow fence along the south side of a park to prevent snowdrifts from making the road impassible (which happened in the years before the snow fence was installed).
    This year, the City has made FOUR trips for the installation, beginning in September (before the first of the snowfalls we’ve had so far):
    1. Paint white markings on the grass where the fence should go, and put in small wooden pegs marking the ends. Also paint red markings to indicate subsurface utilities.
    2. Replace the snow fence end small wooden pegs with long iron rods driven deep into the ground; the plastic snow fence will be attached to these.
    3. Paint more white lines, with the word “gate” at the southeast corner of the park. There has never been a gate at the southeast corner.
    4. Bring both a City truck and a large piece of heavy equipment; one worker holds a long iron bar while the heavy equipment pushes it into the ground. There are probably 40-60 of these such bars. And they don’t follow the white lines sprayed on the grass earlier.

    And here we are. I guess we will have to wait for at least a 5th trip before the actual snowfence gets attached to all the iron bars.

    So tell me again why the City is blaming the Province for inadequate funding when perhaps the City should be looking at its own operations.
