And further, that subject to funding being available in approved capital or current budgets, the Director of Purchasing be authorized to enter into Direct Negotiations with Motorola Canada, its partners or successors, for items and services deemed to be proprietary or similar in nature to address operational requirements for the life cycle of the VCOM Radio system.

Carried 2010-705

Councillor Miles questioned the proposed direct negotiations with Motorola given the current VCOM contract will not expire until 2014. She expressed concern that the Region of Peel could pay a higher price if the contract is not tendered.

Lloyd Addis, Manager, ITS Telecommunications Systems and Services/VCOM System Manager, Peel Regional Police, assured Regional Council that staff performed due diligence prior to recommending the direct negotiation with Motorola.

Superintendent Frank Roselli, Information Services/VCOM Chair, Peel Regional Police, stated that the decision to upgrade the system with Motorola was industry driven. The majority of the vendors are switching to digital technology and the current analog system used in Peel is outdated. He advised that the area municipal Fire Chiefs and pertinent stakeholders fully endorse the recommendation to switch to a digital system.

Councillor McCallion echoed the concerns of Councillor Miles while supporting the recommendation to switch to a digital system, stating that it is extremely important to have the most up-to-date communications technology.

HE-A. LONG-TERM CARE

HE-A1. Central West Local Health Integration Network Aging at Home Initiatives at Regional Long Term Care Centres

Moved by Councillor Gibson,
Seconded by Councillor Iannicca;

That staff be authorized to proceed with the planning and implementation of Aging at Home initiatives at the Regional Long-Term Care Centres through funding from the Central West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) to address the needs of Peel residents to achieve and maintain the maximum level of functioning to prevent premature and inappropriate institutionalization;

And further, that the 2010 operating budget for Long Term Care be increased equivalent to the amount of the 2010 portion of the funding;

And further, that 3.2 additional Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) positions be approved as an in year approval for the delivery of these programs, once the funding is announced;

And further, that the required documents be executed by the duly authorized signing officers of the Regional Corporation;

And further, that staff continue to work with the Central West LHIN to implement community support services at Tall Pines Long-Term Care Centres in Brampton, subject to future budget approval.

Carried 2010-709

Councillor Miles asked if the provincial government was providing 100 per cent funding for the Aging at Home initiatives and if there is a set amount available from the provincial government. Janette Smith, Commissioner, Health Services, responded that the provincial government is providing 100 per cent of the funding for the Aging at Home initiatives, currently. There is, however, a possibility that in the future, provincial funding for the programs will not keep pace with inflation. Janette Smith added that this is the third year of the Aging at Home initiatives and the Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) continue to review the Aging at Home programs and make recommendations to the provincial government regarding additional funding.

Councillor Miles asked for further detail on home supports for seniors and if additional funds have been made available for those programs. Janette Smith responded that the Community Care Access Centres (CCACs) and individual agencies such as Meals on Wheels which are funded by the LHINs provide home support to seniors. The Region continues to work with the LHINs, to determine what services are required to support seniors in their homes.

Councillor Paterak stated that if seniors wait too long to move from a house to an apartment the change can be too dramatic and lead to a decline in the senior’s health. Benchmarks need to be developed and counselling services need to be available to assist seniors and their families determine when a move from independent living is appropriate.

Councillor Groves stressed the importance of exercise programs that help seniors remain in their homes and that the LHINs should recognize the need for these programs.

HE-A2. Long Term Care Homes Act Proclaimed

And further, that the report of the Commissioner of Health Services, dated June 18, 2010, titled “Long Term Care Homes Act Proclaimed” be sent to the Intergovernmental Relations Advisory Committee for direction around future advocacy that highlights the need for adequate one-time and ongoing operational funding to Long Term Care operators transitioning to the Long Term Care Homes Act.

Carried 2010-710

Councillor Mullin requested further details on the cost of meeting specific requirements set out in the Long Term Care Homes Act. Janette Smith, Commissioner, Health Services, responded that the Province recently made a funding announcement related to meeting the requirements contained in the Long Term Care Homes Act. The funding will be phased in over a number of months. Preliminary estimates indicate the Region will receive $1.4 million from the provincial government in order to meet the requirements of the new legislation. Staff are working to determine the costs related to meeting the requirements of the Act and whether there may be a shortfall in provincial funding. Any shortfall in provincial funding will be presented to Council as part of the 2011 budget process.

HE-B. PUBLIC HEALTH

HE-B1. Built Environment and Health Initiatives Update

Received 2010-711

HE-B2. Update on the Region of Peel Seniors’ Low-Income Dental Program

Moved by Councillor McCallion,
Seconded by Councillor Miles;

That the Commissioner of Health Services and the Medical Officer of Health be directed to spend additional one-time funds of up to $2 million, to be put into a working fund reserve for the Seniors’ Dental Program in 2010 and 2011, to address the program backlog.

Carried 2010-712

See also Resolution 2010-713

Councillor McCallion expressed concern that providing dental service to 600 additional seniors does not significantly reduce the 3,200 seniors currently on the program wait list. She proposed that $2 million of the $2.5 million received from the Ministry of Health be allocated in order to provide dental service to 1200 seniors. Dr. Mowat responded that the $1 million recommended in the report took into account that the funds had to be spent by year end and that it would take time to put the dental service staff in place to accommodate an additional 600 low-income seniors.

Councillor Miles stated dental health for seniors is a major issue and concurred with investing the additional $1 million. She suggested that if the Region is unable to spend all of the $2 million by the end of the year, arrangements should be made to set-up a reserve fund for 2011.

Councillor Parrish expressed support for increasing the low-income senior’s dental program to $2 million noting that the Region needs to significantly reduce the number of seniors currently on the wait list.

Councillor Saito supported the increase in funding to the $2 million level and requested Members of Regional Council encourage seniors in the community to lobby the provincial government to fund dental care for low-income seniors.

Councillor Groves noted the importance of good oral hygiene for seniors so they are able to eat well and maintain good health. She stated the provincial government needs to recognize the need for the low-income senior’s dental program.

Councillor Thompson concurred with the previous speakers and suggested that the current waiting list for low-income seniors to receive dental service be addressed during 2011 budget deliberations.

Councillor Mullin informed Members of Regional Council that Appendix I to the report of the Commissioner of Human Services, dated June 16, 2010, titled “Provincial Approval of Appointment of Ontario Works Administrator for the Region of Peel”, has been withdrawn and no longer forms part of the report.

Moved by Councillor Morrison,
Seconded by Councillor Prentice;

Additional Item – Item HS-C2:

HS-C2. Sprinkler Use in Apartment Buildings (Oral)

Moved by Councillor Palleschi,
Seconded by Councillor Parrish;

That Regional staff review installing sprinkler systems in the Coptic Church and the Royal Canadian Legion housing projects;

And further, that staff report back to Regional Council with any other housing projects which have not been built to date that do not fall under the Fire Protection and Prevention Act and the Ontario Fire Code to install sprinkler systems;

And further, that staff report back on the increase of the budget costs for the Coptic Church and the Royal Canadian Legion and the budget implications of any other housing projects not regulated by the Fire Protection and Prevention Act and the Ontario Fire Code.

Carried 2010-718

Councillor Palleschi stated that recent changes to the Fire Protection and Prevention Act and the Ontario Fire Code require that a sprinkler system be installed in all new apartment buildings. The Region of Peel approved the Coptic Church and the Royal Canadian Legion housing projects before the recent legislative changes so they are not subject to the new regulations requiring a sprinkler system.

Councillor Palleschi requested that staff install the sprinkler systems in the two subject housing projects and report to Regional Council with the budget implications.

Regional Chair Kolb advised that representatives from Brampton Christian School are in attendance at the meeting to provide information and respond to any inquiries Regional Council may have about payment of development charges by the school.

ITEMS RELATED TO MANAGEMENT
Chaired by Councillor R. Whitehead

Moved by Councillor Thompson,
Seconded by Councillor Morrison;

That Alex Abdulnour, Principal, Brampton Christian School, be permitted to address questions of Council regarding payment of Development Charges by Brampton Christian School, in relation to Item MA-A3.

Carried 2010-720

See also Resolutions 2010-721, 2010-722, 2010-748 and 2010-752

Additional Item:

Alex Abdulnour, Principal Brampton Christian School, regarding Payment of Development Charges by Brampton Christian School

Received 2010-721

See also Resolutions 2010-720, 2010-722, 2010-748 and 2010-752

Alex Abdulnour, Principal, Brampton Christian School (BCS), stated that BCS is defined as a School Board under the Education Act. He cited sections of the Education Act relevant to the education development charge noting that the Kennedy Road Tabernacle Christian School already owns the land that has been developed by BCS and therefore should be exempt from development charges. Alex Abdulnour requested that Members of Regional Council consider providing a refund for past payment of development charges, with accumulated interest.

Item MA-A3 was dealt with.

MA-A3. Payment of Development Charges by Brampton Christian Schools

Referred to staff for a further report to the September 9, 2010 Regional Council meeting 2010-722

See also Resolutions 2010-720, 2010-721, 2010-748 and 2010-752

Councillor Palleschi requested clarification of the difference between educational development charges and the Regional Municipality of Peel development charges. Patrick O’Connor, Regional Solicitor and Director of Legal and Risk Management, responded that the statutory references presented address to educational development charges. The Regional development charges are governed under the Development Charges Act and therefore the statutory references referred to are not applicable to the exemption requested.

Councillor Palleschi noted that the Brampton Christian School (BSC) is on a septic system and asked why the school is being charged for sewer and wastewater development charges. He also commented that the school has not increased their water usage and questioned the cost of the development charge fees for water.

Councillor Thompson concurred with Councillor Palleschi and requested clarification as to why a facility would incur development charges for the construction of an addition to the building when there are no additional services being utilized. Patrick O’Connor responded that the criterion for imposition of the charge is not the use of the service but the availability of the service. Councillor Thompson noted that the BCS paid for servicing the site in 1977 and raised concern that the school is being charged twice. Councillor Thompson stated that the water and wastewater development charges total $115,081.61 and requested that Regional Council consider an exemption for this amount. Alex Abdulnour further indicated that the development charges for roads were in excess of $127,650.00. He noted that BCS directly paid the Ministry of Transportation for road redevelopment and questioned if the school should be paying twice in this regard. Councillor Thompson requested that staff report back to Regional Council to review the aforementioned issues.

Councillor McCallion stated that there are numerous properties and private schools in Mississauga that do not receive services and requested that staff provide a detailed report on the implications of the subject exemption request on a Regional basis.
