CITIZEN’S COMMITTEE ON COUNCIL REMUNERATION: In a report to Council, CAO Robert Lamb recommended that a Citizen’s Committee on Council Remuneration comprised of three voting members of the general public be struck, that two non-voting members (a member of Council and the CAO) be appointed to assist them, and that the Committee report its recommendations to the July 20, 2022 Committee of the Whole meeting, then formally dissolve. The citizen members would be selected through a recruitment process. Council supported the recommendation. For full details see the Committee of the Whole Agenda for February 23, 2022.
NON-RESIDENT PARKING PERMIT PROGRAM: After considering staff reports, Council decided that in addition to coins, credit cards or Interac Tap, Tiny’s 4 Beach Parks with Master Plans are to accept payments through a mobile app called HotSpot Parking Inc. This service charges no annual fee and can be cancelled on 30 days’ notice, though it would cost users 25 cents per parking session. There would be a one-time cost to the township of roughly $6,500.
DELINEATION OF PUBLIC BEACHES/ACCESSES: Council authorized Phase 2 of the delineation process. This would clearly define the public/private boundary at each park using delineation posts and appropriate signage and would have staff subsequently work with landowners to resolve encroachments. Cost $150,000. The areas to be delineated in 2022 are:
Ossossane continuation Lundy Lane to Jackson Park
30 Waterview Concession 4 West
Asselin Park (Concession 17W to Sunrise Court) Chemin du Loup Road Allowance
19 Huronia Court
LA Beach North Boundary
Regarding Phase 1 – Surveys and staking and installation of posts have been completed for: Jackson Park North Boundary
42 Lackie Crescent
10 Nassau Court
Areas of Phase 1 that were only partly delineated last year are to be completed this year.
DECLARATION OF CLIMATE EMERGENCY: On March 16, Council supported the Declaration prepared by Shannon Mawhinney of the Severn Sound Environmental Association. According to this, the Township of Tiny continues to put into action the actions, priorities and goals outlined in the Climate Action Plan. The Declaration is a recommitment to the Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) Program and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets, namely reduction of community GHG emission by 6% and of Tiny’s corporate emissions by 30% by 2028. Currently, the Township’s fleet produces the bulk of the township’s GHG emissions – 74%. The next highest offender is township buildings at 18%. No figures were given for the community’s GHG emissions.
