Passed    Motion To: COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS AS AMENDED That Council: 1. Approve the repeal of the Noise By-law (2004-253, as amended) and the re-enactment of the by-law as described in Document 1 and in this report to: a) define and specify bass noise in the general provision of the by-law that addresses noise likely to disturb; b) reduce the maximum noise threshold for construction exemptions from 90 dB(A) to 85 dB(A), in accordance with provincial standards; c) exempt municipal waste collection; d) enable charging of companies for after-hours waste collection and deliveries; and e) reduce permitted car alarm time to 5 minutes from 20. 2. Authorize the Manager, By-law & Regulatory Services Branch, to finalize and make minor adjustments to the amended and re-enacted by-law to give effect to the intent of Council. 3. Direct: a) Fleet Services review the feasibility of installing broadband back-up alarms on appropriate City vehicles and report back to Council with options and the associated costs for consideration in 2018 Budget Deliberations; b) Road Services and Facilities staff or others as identified, in consultation with Supply, review the feasibility of incorporating requirements for broadband back-up alarms into purchasing documents for external snow-clearing service providers using vehicles where such alarms are appropriate; c) By-law & Regulatory Services staff review the feasibility of adding to the licensing regulations related to snow plow contractors the requirement for broadband back-up alarms on private snow plow vehicles, as appropriate, and report back to Council in the next Term of Council.
