MOTIONS OF WHICH NOTICE HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY GIVEN

 

MOTION

Moved by Councillor D. Chernushenko
Seconded by Councillor S. Qadri

WHEREAS municipal governments in Ontario do not have the right to approve landfill projects in their communities, but have authority for making decisions on all other types of development;

WHEREAS this outdated policy allows private landfill operators to consult with local residents and municipal Councils, but essentially ignore them;

WHEREAS formerly proposed Ontario legislation (Bill 16) would have granted municipalities additional authority and autonomy to make decisions for their communities;

WHEREAS municipalities already have exclusive rights for approving casinos and nuclear waste facilities within their communities, AND FURTHER that the province has recognized the value of municipal approval for the siting of power generation facilities;

AND WHEREAS a recent report from Ontario’s Environmental Commissioner has found that Ontario has a garbage problem, particularly from Industrial, Commercial and Institutional (ICI) waste, a sector which is not regulated by the municipality AND FURTHER where the municipality has little to no recourse to ensure this waste is being properly diverted;

WHEREAS waste diversion; keeping recyclable products and organics out of the landfill is a priority area for any municipality with a greenhouse gas emissions reduction target

WHEREAS municipalities should be considered experts in waste management, as they are responsible for this within the residential sector, and often have decades’ worth of in-house expertise in managing waste, recycling, and diversion programs;

AND WHEREAS municipalities should have the exclusive right to approve or reject these projects, and assess whether the potential economic benefits, as well as efforts at waste diversion and recycling, are of sufficient value to offset any negative impacts and environmental concerns;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the City of Ottawa calls upon the Government of Ontario, and all political parties, to formally grant municipalities the authority to approve landfill projects in or adjacent to their communities;

AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT the City of Ottawa send copies of this resolution to the next Minister of Environment & Climate Change for Ontario, to the next Premier of Ontario, to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO), and to the Large Urban Mayor’s Caucus of Ontario.

 

Pursuant to Subsection 59(5) of the Procedure By-law, the following revised Motion replaces the one contained in the Notice of Motion submitted at the May 23, 2018 Council Meeting.  

MOTION

Moved by Councillor R. Chiarelli
Seconded by Councillor J. Cloutier

WHEREAS City Council in 2005 adopted a Residential Protective Plumbing Program for Sewer Back-up (the “Program”), modelled on the program in place in former City of Ottawa since the early 1980s, for the amalgamated City of Ottawa; and

WHERAS the Program is intended to provide residents with some financial assistance in terms of protection of individual properties, through reimbursement of a portion of the cost of the installation of protective plumbing to reduce the risk of basement or cellar flooding resulting from City sewer backup; and

WHEREAS the Program currently requires homeowners to submit their application prior to having the protective plumbing device installed, as set out in Section 3 of By-law 2016-376 (the “By-law”); and

AND WHEREAS numerous homes were affected by flooding as a result of the extraordinary rainfall event that took place on October 29-30, 2017; and

WHEREAS several of the affected homeowners have advised that they were directed by their insurers to have protective plumbing devices installed as soon as possible or risk cancellation of their insurance against flooding, with the result that these homeowners were unable to first submit their applications for partial reimbursement of the cost under the Program pursuant to the By-law;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that City Council waive the requirement of Section 3 of By-law 2016-376 that “the owner of an eligible property as described in Section 2 must apply to and receive approval from the City prior to the start date of any work, including but not limited to any demolition or construction work associated with the installation of the protective plumbing devices,” until December 31, 2018, in respect of homeowners whose property was flooded on October 29-30, 2017, and who proceeded with the installation of protective plumbing devices without prior approval between October 30, 2017 and March 31, 2018, rather than risk cancellation of their insurance.
