Update from Councillor Peter Milczyn – July 11, 2013


Parklawn Park

Toronto Police say a lifeless body was discovered in Parklawn Park, near Parklawn Rd. and Kingspoint Dr., just after 7:30 a.m. Thursday. “The man has not yet been identified,” Const. Tony Vella said.

Homicide detectives have been notified of the death, but it has not been deemed a murder at this point. “The man’s death is currently classified as suspicious,” Vella said, explaining the investigation is in its early stages.

Anyone with information about this case should call 22 Division detectives at 416-808-2200 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477). I have asked TPS to provide me with updates as they are made available. I will update residents of Ward 5 as I get that additional information from them.

Special Additional Garbage Collection has been scheduled

Residents are reminded to check with their insurance company before setting items out for collection (proof of damage prior to disposal may be needed for reimbursement).

The City will provide special collection on Saturday, July 13 for waste created by flooding. Residents also have the option of setting out flood-damaged items on their regular garbage day.

Bulky items such as couches, mattresses or other furniture do not need to be dismantled. Carpet must be tied in rolls measuring 1.2 m (4 ft) in length. Smaller items should be placed in garbage bags; no City-issued Bag Tag required. Each bag or roll of carpet cannot weigh more than 20 kg (44 lbs). Please place all flood-damaged material out at the curb by 7 a.m. and leave items out until collected (collection may continue until Monday).

Place spoiled food items in the Green Bin.

Do not set out any construction/renovation waste (i.e. drywall, wood, wood panelling) or household hazardous waste (i.e. paint cans, fluorescent lighting tubes/bulbs).

Flood Information and Basement Flooding Subsidy Program

311 and Toronto Water have received over 3,000 basement flooding calls. Staff are working as quickly as they can to get to people’s homes, however, due to the high volume of requests they are not able to respond within the normal service standard.

At this point we are being advised that it will take at least an additional four or five days to complete their visits to every home. Please note that the total number of received calls does continue to rise on a daily basis.
