I would like to take a moment to supply residents with a breakdown of the quarterly by-law regulatory service request report.
Every three months, by-law services releases a ward-by-ward summary of general request types. These requests range from a multitude of services offered by calling or emailing 3-1-1 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
By-law & Regulatory Services experienced an overall increase of 19% in total call volume compared to Q3 of 2016.
As you can observe, parking was the most-requested by-law item within our ward (451) however it only comprised 1.6% of the total city’s parking requests (consistent with last year’s statistics at Q3). Alternatively, Stittsville’s greatest reflection in comparison to the city as a whole were requests regarding parks (4.4%) which saw 71 requests for the first ¾ of the year.
Learning from these trends helps the City of Ottawa to ensure that proper investments are made into resources for the future.
I encourage residents to take a moment and see what trends they can spot. Of course, as your City Councillor, I am always keen to hear your comments and ideas regarding how to improve our community. You can do so by emailing me at Shad.Qadri@ottawa.ca.
