By Kelly McCarthy, Ottawa Community News, December 2, 2016 Your tax dollars go far in West Carleton, but maybe not quite far enough Coun. Eli El-Chantiry says. There’s a lot of good news in the city’s 2017 draft budget, including more money for road maintenance, parks and Canada 150 projects, however, El-Chantiry said that it might not be possible to fit everything into the budget each year if it continues to be restricted to a two per cent tax revenue increase each year.

Some highlights for road maintenance currently included in the 2017 draft budget include:

• $915,000 to upgrade Panmure Road from Hwy. 417 to Donald B Munro Drive

• $464,000 to upgrade Greenland Road from Thomas A Dolan Parkway to Vances Side Road

• $370,000 to upgrade Limestone Road from Kinburn Side Road to Styles Side Road

Those are three of 19 road maintenance projects and 34 drainage projects slated for West Carleton.

El-Chantiry said he has also ordered more speed signs to be placed at key spots in the ward to help with traffic calming in 2017.
