Dear Brimley Forest Neighbour:

I am honoured that the majority in Ward 41 re-elected me as your Councillor to continue to represent you at City Hall. Thank you to everyone who has shown their faith and confidence in my past record and in my platform.

We have made a lot of progress in building a better city in the last 8 years and we will continue to work hard to make Ward 41 the best community to live, work and play. Our accomplishments, past and future, would not have been possible without your support.

Moving forward, I will continue to consult you to ensure that your voices are heard at City Hall. I will continue to support the Scarborough Subway and John Tory’s SmartTrack plan – providing Toronto residents with two-way, all-day rapid GO Transit service.

As the winter approaches, so does flu season. Toronto Public Health will be holding influenza vaccination clinics. Visit their website for more information: http://tinyurl.com/qxasatj.

Work will be conducted to remediate the trails in Brimley Woods in late fall and may continue into 2015. The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is conducting the work on behalf of the City of Toronto.

The TRCA will make the trails more sustainable by replacing the wood chips that comprise the trail with granular material. This results in trails that are maintenance-free and that stay dry through most of the year because of improved drainage. Wood chips break down and need to be replaced regularly. They also scatter as the trail is being used, which increases the footprint of the trail and its impact on the environment. The trails will also be re-graded, narrowed and re-routed as part of this work.

If my office can be of service or assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely,

Councillor Chin Lee
