Councillor Paterak requested clarification on the costs associated with losing contract staff to other full time employment.  R. Kent Gillespie, Commissioner of Employee and Business Services, responded that the turnover rate is approximately four times higher than regular full-time staff and has cost approximately $2 to $3 million, over the past few years.

Councillor McCallion stated that contracts should be reviewed after a two year period to determine if they should be converted to regular staff positions.  She suggested that a policy be developed for conditions of contract positions and that future contract renewals be presented to Regional Council for approval.

David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer, stated that staff determined through due diligence that the 10 contract positions are required on a full time basis, and that Courts have ruled that after two years, contract staff are considered full time regular employees.

Councillor Palleschi requested that staff provide him with a list of the 84 projects which are planned or underway, related to Real Property Asset Management.

Councillor Miles noted that the issue of the conversion of ten contract positions to full-time was discussed at length during 2012 Regional Budget deliberations, and that in light of the information contained within the report listed as Item MA-C1, she is satisfied that it would be appropriate to convert the positions.

HE-B2. Ontario Public Health Standards – Peel Update

Received 2012-826

Councillor Morrison expressed concern related to the Region of Peel’s ability to meet the Ontario Public Health Standards.

Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health, stated that Public Health resources fall short of what would be required to implement all of the Ontario Public Health Standards, therefore; priorities must be established to address what is considered in the Region of Peel to be the highest priorities. He noted that the nature of the Region of Peel population directs certain priorities such as the prevalence of diabetes, and returning travellers from parts of the world where disease is prevalent. Dr. Mowat stated that the per capita funding Peel Public Health receives from the Ministry of Health is the lowest of all 36 Ontario Health Units and that it would require an additional $12 million in annual funding to bring Peel’s funding to a comparable level with other large public health units in the province. Dr. Mowat committed to continue making vigorous representation to the Ministry’s Committee on Public Health Funding that he Co-Chairs.

Regional Chair Kolb suggested that the Term of Council Priorities be reviewed in the Fall, 2012, to determine if the priorities have changed. He requested that each department Commissioner provide an update of the priorities in the Fall, 2012.

Janette Smith, Commissioner of Health Services, confirmed that the low income Seniors’ Dental Program is the only program offered by Peel Public Health that is fully funded by the Region of Peel.

b) Joe Perrota, Manager, Provincial Planning, Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) and Neil Ahmed, P.Eng, Consultant Project Manager, McCormick Rankin, a Member of MMM Group, Providing an Overview of the Progress of the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) West Corridor

Received 2012-829

See also Resolutions 2012-830 and 2012-831

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Joe Perrota, Manager, Provincial Planning, Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) advised that following the release of the Draft Transportation Development Strategy, the MTO further evaluated the widening of Highway 401 as an alternative to a new corridor through Halton Hills and it was recognized that further Highway 401 widening to 12 lanes through Halton would provide the best balance of benefits and impacts and is therefore preferred. To address transportation needs to the 2031 planning horizon, it is recommended that Highway 401 be widened to 12 lanes through Halton and that MTO proceed with a new transportation corridor from Highway 400 in York to Highway 401/407 Express Toll Route west of the Halton-Peel Boundary.

Councillor Thompson suggested that MTO consider long term planning, beyond the 2031 planning horizon, noting that the MTO proposal does not provide for ramp access to the highway from Dixie Road, which will affect the function of a major Regional Road. He stated that plans for a ring highway versus a short term alternative are needed to address planning needs beyond 2031.

Councillor Thompson further requested assurance that MTO will work with the farming community to address their concerns related to the MTO proposal.

Councillor Morrison noted that in 1997, the Town of Caledon Official Plan designated Mayfield West, from Chinguacousy Road to Dixie Road and Old School Road to Mayfield Road, as the next Caledon growth area. Based on assurances that the highway extension would not be a straight northerly extension, the Town of Caledon designed its first Greenfield Community and developers have gone through zoning approvals and site plan submissions and are ready to begin developing the area. The MTO has now frozen that land from development for three to five years which will severely affect the Town of Caledon’s ability to become self-sufficient.

Councillor Paterak expressed concern that Highway 410 could be downloaded from the province, noting that the Region of Peel contributed one-third funding for a 400-series highway. He requested that the Regional Solicitor provide a legal opinion to Regional Council regarding the appropriateness of potential downloading.

In response to a question from Councillor Sprovieri, Joe Perrota stated that comments received prior to July 31, 2012 would be considered in MTO’s final recommendations. He noted that Places to Grow provides planning direction to 2031 and that population and employment locations have been projected to 2031. There are no firm numbers beyond that period on which to base projections, nor do Official Plans contain projections beyond 2031.

Councillor Sprovieri inquired when the MTO would further define the large geographical area at the Highway 50/Mayfield Road pinch point so that development can proceed in the area.

Joe Perrota stated that a number of pressure points have been identified as priority areas to be addressed early in Phase 2 of the Environmental Assessment (EA) and that definition of those areas is expected approximately 12 months after the commencement of Phase 2.

Councillor Thompson inquired if the province has any plans to shorten the EA process. Joe Perotta stated that he is not aware of any plans to review the process although a number of concerns have been expressed regarding the length of the EA process.
