MA-B4. Update on Income Related Eligibility for Programs at the Region of Peel and Area Municipalities

Received 2013-674

Councillor Saito suggested that consideration should be given to the provision of staggered levels of support for applicants of non-mandatory programs, such as the Low-Income Seniors’ Dental Program, noting that some applicants’ income may be slightly above the eligible level but they are still unable to afford dental services.

Janette Smith, Commissioner of Health Services, stated that at the direction of Regional Council, the Low Income Cut-off (LICO) established by Statistics Canada has been used as the criterion for determining Low-Income Seniors’ Dental Program eligibility for the past year. She suggested that the impact of utilizing the LICO criterion be reviewed at the Annual Low-Income Seniors Dental Program Stakeholders Meeting in the Fall 2013, and stated that the Annual meeting would also provide an appropriate forum for the consideration and implications of a staggered funding eligibility approach.

The Commissioner of Health Services undertook to report to a future meeting of Regional Council with an update, subsequent to the Annual Stakeholders Meeting. She further noted that based on the existing budget for the Low-Income Seniors’ Dental Program, the introduction of staggered eligibility funding would likely result in a significant increase to the program wait list.

Carried 2013-685

See also Resolution 2013-703

RESOLUTION 2013-685 RESCINDED BY 2014-275

Councillor Saito raised concern that the report listed as Item PW-A1 on the September 12, 2013 Regional Council agenda proposed changes to the Public Works Community Program Funding (PWCPF) grant program that would potentially open the procurement process to private sector agencies, noting that the existing community-based groups in each area municipality have successfully worked with the Region of Peel for 20 years. Councillor Saito stated that the proposed change to service-based procurement would eliminate funding for the core operations of existing community organizations, including administrative and overhead costs.

Councillor Saito stated her preference for non-profit, community-based organizations that provide programs that increase community knowledge and understanding of waste management programs and promote the Region’s role in waste management.

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works, clarified that the purpose of the proposed program changes was to address risks that were identified during a 2011 Internal Audit of the current PWCPF grant program and to ensure balance is achieved between quality and price and that the process be open to the public.

Councillor Saito requested a friendly amendment to the recommendation contained within the subject report to endorse, in principle, an open and transparent competitive procurement process for waste education programming.

Councillor Paterak suggested that eligible organizations should be community-based, noting that such organizations have local knowledge of the issues. He requested that applicants undergo a thorough analysis relating to the number of volunteer hours expended by their members to promote the Regional waste management programs.

The Commissioner of Public Works confirmed that the proposed changes are not an indication of displeasure with the services provided, but rather reflect the intent to amend the process of the program to ensure it is open and transparent.

Councillor Crombie arrived at 9:51a.m.
Councillor Fennell arrived at 9:58 a.m.
Councillor Tovey arrived at 10:03 a.m

Moved by Councillor Sanderson,
Seconded by Councillor Sprovieri;

That the necessary by-law be enacted to amend By-law 15-2013 with respect to new traffic signs on Regional Roads resulting from development activity across the Region of Peel, as described in the report of the Commissioner of Public Works, dated August 8, 2013, titled “Amendments to the Traffic By-law 15-2013 Resulting from Recent Development Activity Across the Region of Peel”, save and except the U-Turn provisions for Queen Street East in the City of Brampton described in Section “e” of the subject report;

And further, that the U-Turn provisions for Queen Street East in the City of Brampton be referred back to Public Works staff for further analysis;

And further, that the City of Brampton, City of Mississauga and Town of Caledon, Peel Regional Police and the Ontario Provincial Police, Caledon Detachment be so advised.

Carried 2013-688

See also Resolution 2013-719

Councillor Sanderson stated that he did not support the implementation of a legalized U-turn movement on Regional Road 107 (Queen Street East) west of Regional Road 4 (Dixie Road) east of West Drive/Laurelcrest Drive. He noted that Queen Street East is one of the busiest roads in the Region of Peel, and that in his opinion, U-turns would be very dangerous in such a high volume traffic area. Councillor Sanderson suggested that traffic signals should be utilized instead of the legalized U-turn movement.

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works, advised that staff and the developer of the Norton Lake Apartments building site worked collaboratively and determined that the implementation of a U-turn lane was the most feasible solution to address the traffic concerns resulting from the development. He stated that staff would continue to monitor the U-turn movement to determine if signalization of the U-turn would benefit traffic. Dan Labrecque undertook to report back to a future meeting of Regional Council to present the U-turn modelling that was undertaken for that location.

Joe Avsec, Manager, Traffic Engineering, stated that a camera would be installed at the subject location to monitor traffic and that mitigating measures would be applied to address any safety concerns noted by staff.

Councillor Thompson suggested that the report listed as Item PW-B3 and the corresponding by-law on the September 12, 2013 Regional Council agenda be considered, save and except for the two issues related to the U-turn movement at Regional Road 107 (Queen Street East) west of Regional Road 4 (Dixie Road); and, Regional Road 107 (Queen Street East) east of West Drive/Laurelcrest Drive, which would be referred back to staff for further analysis.

Several Members of Regional Council requested that the Commissioner of Public Works convey their appreciation to the staff and contractors who responded to various watermain breaks that occurred over the past few months noting that they did an outstanding job communicating with Councillors and assisting affected residents. The use of social media, particularly the Peel Public Works Twitter feed was also noted as being an effective communication tool to provide real time updates.

Additional Item:

Incorporating “Stretch Breaks” into Regional Council Meetings (Oral)

Moved by Councillor Saito,
Seconded by Councillor Sanderson;

Whereas, research shows that vigorous exercise, although beneficial, cannot fully compensate for the health risks which result from prolonged sitting;

Therefore be it resolved, that “stretch breaks” be incorporated into Regional Council meetings.

Carried 2013-691

Item PW-C1 was dealt with.

PW-C. WASTEWATER

PW-C1. Update Council on the Rain Event of July 8, 2013

Received 2013-692

See also Resolution 2013-693

Councillor Starr suggested that the development of a problem-solving matrix is required to ensure the Region of Peel, area municipalities and Conservation Authorities are able to respond to flooding issues in a coordinated manner.

Councillor Miles stated that the Bramalea area was heavily impacted by the rain event that occurred on July 8, 2013, and that area residents have requested neighbourhood meetings to have their questions and concerns addressed. She noted that residents want to know what they can do to help prevent future flooding, as well as, the long term plans to address storm water management.

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works, identified some of the challenges faced by staff and contractors with respect to the recent flooding event and confirmed that Regional Council would be receiving regular updates from staff regarding actions implemented by the Region of Peel. He stated that it would be a long process to accumulate the data and provide some solutions. No one solution will fit all the issues as there can be several reasons for flooded homes which could include sewers, ground water, foundation drains, surcharges or river’s overflow.

Mark Schiller, Executive Director, Water and Wastewater, advised that one of the biggest challenges in dealing with flooding in older neighbourhoods is the connection of foundation drains to the sanitary sewer, which results in storm water rising up through basements. He stated that staff would be reporting to Regional Council later in 2013 with recommendations related to the mitigation of neighbourhood flooding, including the possibility of the development of an incentive program to encourage residents to disconnect foundation drains from the sanitary sewer.

David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer, suggested that staff meet with individual Councillors to identify the additional resources needed to address the flooding issues in their wards, and report back to a future meeting of Regional Council with recommended next steps.

Councillor Fonseca advised that she is still canvassing neighbourhoods in her ward to collect data related to flooding so that a comprehensive report, including a matrix that prioritizes issues, can be compiled. She suggested that another form of communication is required to encourage residents to complete a survey regarding their flooding experience. She requested that staff report back to a future meeting of Regional Council with short term solutions and mitigation plans that could be in place by fall or early winter, in conjunction with the area municipalities and Conservation Authorities.

Several members of Regional Council commended the efforts of Region of Peel staff and contractors in removing the excess material set out for collection that resulted from the rain event, as well as, for ensuring affected residents had access to food and shelter.

Councillor Tovey suggested that Regional Council consider joining the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative, which produces useful data and studies related to the protection and restoration of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River.

Councillor Crombie suggested that the use of social media, to keep residents, informed could be strengthened and noted the importance of providing real-time information.

Councillor Saito departed at 11:20 a.m., due to other municipal business.
Councillor Carlson arrived at 11:25 a.m., due to a personal matter.
