Short Term Rentals—Update The Township of Ramara is considering passing an Interim Control By-law on February 11, 2019 that will have the effect prohibiting any new Short Term Rental (STR) accommodation units (the renting of residential dwelling units for less than 30 days) within the Township for a period of 12 months. As such, any STR unit owners/ operators WILL BE REQUIRED to register STR units at the Township Office no later than APRIL 1ST. The operator must provide proof that the STR unit existed as of the time of registration. Those failing to register existing STR units will not be in compliance with the new Interim Control By-law once it is in effect. All information registered with the Township will be for internal Township records only and will not be shared publicly. Once registered, existing STR units may continue to operate under the Interim Control By-law or until further STR unit rules and regulations are in place.

CIS - Community Information System Get alerted about emergencies and other important community news by signing up for Ramara Community Information System (CIS). Ramara CIS uses the Everbridge system which allows the Township to use multiple means of communication for the both emergency alerts and relaying community information. You will only receive the information you choose to receive. In addition to your home phone you can add mobile phones, Voice over IP landlines, e-mail and/or text messaging to be included to receive messages from Ramara CIS. You can also choose the order in which you receive the notifications. These systems allow the Township to easily and effectively communicate with residents and interested parties through all of today’s available technology. Your alerts, your way! This system will only work with your participation. Help us to keep your families safer and more informed. Find out more at www.ramara.ca O R I L L I A T O D AY F E AT U R E |

SAFE AT HOME Mondays

For many families, having a parent or older sibling around when a child comes home from school just isn’t possible. Whether or not to leave a child home alone is a major dilemma for parents. Children at home alone should be able to prevent and cope with emergencies. They need to be mature enough to care not only for themselves, but often for younger siblings. Only the adults closest to the child know if he/she is ready to spend some time alone at home. This program is designed as a guide for the parents and the children, to both help them get ready to stay at home alone, and to decide when they have the maturity and knowledge to stay at home alone. The children in this program should be at least 8 years old. Dates From-To Time Location Instructor Fee Duration

Chen Taiji is the original Taiji system from which other forms of Taiji sprung from; it dates back to the 13th century.
