F. OTHER BUSINESS

Additional Item – F1:

F1. Notice of Motion by Councillor Mullin regarding the Resurfacing of Roads by the Region of Peel Subsequent to Completing Watermain/Sanitary Sewer Works

Whereas, currently in 2007, the replacement of water and sanitary sewer infrastructure will be required on 35 local residential roads within the City of Mississauga, of which only eight roads will receive full road resurfacing due to the poor state of the roadway prior to the water or sanitary sewer replacement work;

And whereas, the City of Mississauga pays for the full resurfacing of roads in cases where the state of the road was poor prior to the commencement of work by the Region;

And whereas, roads which are not fully resurfaced following the replacement of water and sanitary sewer infrastructure by the Region are only resurfaced in the portion of the road surface that must be replaced due to the work;

And whereas, many residents are upset that roads currently in a good state of repair are patched and paved with two colours of asphalt, affecting the aesthetics of residential streets;

And whereas, the Region of Peel is increasing the number of watermain and sanitary sewer replacements which will increase the number of roads that will not be fully resurfaced after the water or sanitary sewer replacement work is completed;

Therefore be it resolved, that Regional staff report back to Regional Council on the financial implications of the implementation of a program in which the Region would fully resurface the entire residential roadway when undertaking watermain or sanitary sewer replacements where the road is in a good state of repair and not scheduled for resurfacing by the area municipality prior to undertaking the work, by placing a thin layer of asphalt over the entire roadway.

9. OTHER BUSINESS

a) Immunization Risk Mitigation Strategy - Follow Up (Oral)
Presentation by Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health and Loretta Rowan, Manager, Vaccine Preventable Diseases, Health Services

Moved by Councillor Mullin,
Seconded by Councillor Thompson;

Whereas the immunization of school pupils is an essential public health strategy that significantly reduces morbidity and mortality, and is required under the Immunization of School Pupils Act;

And whereas, as a result of growth, immigration and provincial restrictions upon funding, Peel Public Health has been unable to maintain complete and accurate immunization records;

And whereas, Regional Council, the Peel Medical Officer of Health and the Chief Medical Officer of Health for the province have identified the mitigation of risk related to inadequate vaccine coverage rates for Peel students as a high priority;

And whereas, Regional Council received a report in November 2006 outlining a comprehensive Immunization Risk Mitigation Strategy that will result in coverage rates for mandatory vaccines of 95% or greater;

And whereas, the pilot phase of the Immunization Risk Mitigation Strategy demonstrated that implementation of the strategy will result in Peel Public Health completing a full review of student immunization records, engaging the Boards of Education and parents; and in ensuring a vaccine coverage rate of 95% or greater for Peel students;

Therefore be it resolved, that Regional Council support the full implementation of the Immunization Risk Mitigation Strategy, as tested in the pilot, through which Peel Public Health will continue to identify efficiencies, work in partnership with the Boards of Education, and use enhanced resources to implement full screening of immunization records, progressive enforcement of the Immunization of School Pupils Act, and ongoing management of student immunization records, as follows:

• screening of records and enforcement of the Act for 130 schools each year until all schools in Peel are complete in 2009;
• screening and progressive enforcement of the Act for all schools every year thereafter; and
• ongoing management of all immunization records, including new registrants;

And further, that the Medical Officer of Health contact the two school boards within the Region of Peel to present his report titled “Immunization Risk Mitigation Strategy” at a future meeting of the respective boards.
