Mayor Meed Ward’s Weekly Update: June 7-13, 2021

Mayor's Weekly Public Update

Hello Burlington,

I hope you all enjoyed the heat and sunshine this weekend. We know our waterfront parks and beaches have been very busy, and some issues have arisen with loud late-night crowds and garbage. Rest assured we are working with staff and police on solutions to ensure this summer is enjoyable and safe for everyone who visits and lives in the area.

This week is committee week, starting today with Corporate Services, Strategy, Risk and Accountability Committee, then tomorrow with Community Planning, Regulation & Mobility Committee, then Audit Committee on Wednesday, and Environment, Infrastructure & Community Services Committee on Thursday. Watch here for highlights and action items.

If you missed my monthly newsletter that came out on Friday, you can find it here.

Read my detailed update and schedule for the week ahead here: Mayors Weekly Public Update June 7-13 2021

And don’t forget that as of today, those aged 70 and up can move the date of their second vaccine dose up by visiting the Halton Regional website!

Have a great week and remember to be kind to one another.

Mayor Marianne Meed Ward

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
