Passed    Motion To: That the Rules of Procedure be waived, due to the fact that the summer season has begun, to consider the following motion: WHEREAS the Petrie Island Canoe Club is a not-for-profit organization that provides community and recreational services in the east end of Ottawa at a reasonable cost to residents; and WHEREAS the group has stated that a temporary shipping container is required to protect programming equipment from weather and theft; and WHEREAS due to the recent flooding the Petrie Canoe Club was not able to start their programming on Petrie Island until recently, due to water infiltration on the property; and WHEREAS the Petrie Island Canoe Club has been advised that that they are required to pay an Administration Fee of $1,198.93 (incl. HST) as well as a monthly rental fee of $26.00 (incl. HST), valued at $104.00 for four months to place a temporary shipping container at 795 Trim Road (Petrie Island Park) under a License of Occupation; and WHEREAS the Petrie Island Canoe Club has indicated that these fees are a hardship for them due to the delay in their programming this year and has requested that the fees be waived; and WHEREAS staff has the authority to waive administrative fees for other not-for-profit groups where “the agreement is with another government agency, a charitable organization with a registered Canada Revenue Agency number, a not for profit group funded by the City, or a not for profit group under contract with the City to provide a City program”; and WHEREAS, although the Petrie Island Canoe Club does not currently meet the exemption criteria, it does provide a service similar to other canoe clubs in Ottawa, like the Ottawa River Canoe Club, which do have a long-term agreement from the City for $1/year and are exempt from the Administration Fee as they do qualify for the waiver under by-law 2016 - 369; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that City Council approve an exemption for the Petrie Island Canoe Club for the Administration Fee of $1,198.93 (incl. HST) and the monthly rental fee of $26.00 (incl. HST), valued at $104.00 for four months, to permit them to place a temporary shipping container at 795 Trim Road (Petrie Island Park) under a License of Occupation for the 2017 season, as described in this motion; and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that staff be directed to work with the Petrie Island Canoe Club to identify if there are any additional options to accommodate storage for this group in future years, based on current City programs and policies.
