                                                                                                            CARRIED

 

 

Good morning everyone.  A warm thank you to everyone on staff and Council for your patience and consideration you have shown to me over the past three months.

 

I would particularly like to thank the committee chairs and the three acting mayors – Diane Deans, Michel Bellemare and Doug Thompson for the leadership they gave during my time away.  

 

It was a tough ordeal for all of us but now that unfortunate event is behind us and it is time to look to the future. 

 

During my time away I did have the opportunity to reflect upon the honour I was given by the voters of Ottawa to represent them as Mayor and I am excited to be back and look forward to working with my Council colleagues for the benefit of Ottawa.

 

Now that summer is over I am excited to see how the changes in governance work not only here at Council, but throughout the organization.

 

This fall we begin a new and exciting budget process that will bring increased transparency and accountability.

 

Taxes are the price we pay for the value we receive from government.

 

In the past, few would suggest that we were getting much value from our municipal government.

 

We can’t claim to have fixed all the problems and our financial pressures continue to rise, but I do believe that we can begin to see the signs of greater value in the efforts that this Council has made over the last three years.

 

We have streamlined internal operations, put in place a plan to find $100 million in efficiencies and we are rebuilding our city after years of neglect.

 

There is always more to be done and no politician should be complacent about waste and inefficiency but we must focus on the value we receive for the taxes we pay.

 

In the months ahead we have many important projects that will increase the value of our great city.

 

Today Council will decide the next step in the transformation of Lansdowne Park.

 

A jewel in our city that has been left to decay by successive governments.

 

We have the opportunity to create a lasting legacy for future generations of residents and visitors and I’m confident that the people and my Council colleagues will be excited about what we are seeing later this morning.

 

What we will see today is a partnership between the City and four committed business leaders but the vision comes from the input of countless people who contributed their ideas through our consultation processes.

 

While Lansdowne is in Capital Ward it is a gift shared with the whole city and I believe that the proposal meets the test of being a good neighbour.

 

But as we look to rebuild our recreational infrastructure we must also take responsibility for the neglect of our sewage and water systems.

 

Last year we learned of serious problems with our sewer systems and this Council took quick action. I would like to thank Councillors Rainer Bloess and Bob Monette for their work in bringing this problem to the attention of Council—well done.

 

With the co-operation of our provincial and federal partners we secured $100 million in new funding and through the infrastructure stimulus fund and our own capital program we are on track to close the infrastructure deficit and significantly reduce the impact on the Ottawa River.

 

Today we will also hear from staff on the flooding that occurred in Kanata back in late July.

 

I want to acknowledge the great efforts by the local Councillors, Wilkinson, El-Chantiry, Qadri, Feltmate and the deputy Mayor at that time Doug Thompson for ensuring that City staff were aware of the severity of the problem and demanded prompt responses.

 

We will learn that errors happened, more could have been done, but our first priority must be to identify the causes and to seek answers to prevent future flooding as best we can.

 

I wish I could tell you that there are quick fixes to these problems but there are not.

 

Under the leadership of Peter Hume as Chair of the Planning and Environment Committee and the assistance of the provincial and federal governments we have put an unprecedented amount of effort into solving our Ottawa River spillage.

 

It will be his responsibility to ensure that the work continues and we work together to address the recommendations for Kanata.

 

Our challenges are not just bricks and mortar, an important health issue facing Ottawa and the globe is the H1 N1 pandemic that we expect to be upon us as early as this Fall.

 

As Mayor I have been fully briefed from by Dr. Isra Levy Ottawa’s Medical Officer of Health and as a result have asked Councillor Deans as Chair of Community and Protective Services to continue the work among the various branches of the City to refine our response.

 

We have emergency plans in place and since the initial outbreak we have reviewed how best to protect our residents.

 

Councillor Deans will continue through her committee to ensure we have the tools and resources necessary.

 

I am confident we are well prepared but it will take the co-operation of everyone to limit the impact of what could be a global pandemic.

 

From the very first days of this Council we have worked to develop a working transit solution for now and the future.

 

Everyone said that to be sustainable we needed a tunnel through the downtown and I was proud of the work we did to approve a new transportation master plan last fall by an overwhelming majority.

 

Councillors Alex Cullen and Maria McRae have done outstanding work bringing this file forward and I would like to thank them for their hard and thoughtful work. 

 

Work has continued over the summer and in the days ahead we will see what our transit future will look like, but the priority now is securing funding to move us forward.

 

A few weeks ago at AMO we were excited about the reception we had from Ministers Smitherman and Bradley. 

 

They recognized that as a capital city we have the responsibility to ensure safe effective and reliable public transit for our citizens. 

 

They recognized the buy in from our Council, our citizens, and the businesses in Ottawa.

 

I also know the Premier is committed to green public transit and I want to assure him that Ottawa shares his vision.

 

Premier McGuinty, this Council followed your direction and has approved a working, sustainable light rail system.

 

We have worked in close co-operation with your provincial staff throughout the process and we, the citizens of Ottawa, now ask for your personal commitment to fund this project for the benefit of your hometown.

 

These are just a sample of what we must deal with during this last year of Council.

 

We are continuing to make changes for the better in our rural communities.

 

Rural Summit 2 was an update on our progress as well as a road map on where we should go. In the years following amalgamation we have learned that one size does not fit all and there is work to be done but great progress as well.

 

Our communities are safer but we must remain vigilant, we have invested in restoring our social housing through partnerships with the federal and provincial government and I applaud the work that Councillor Holmes has done as an effective advocate for the less fortunate in our community.

 

The work of this Council must progress at a steady pace throughout these next 12 months; it is everyone’s challenge to complete the work we have started together before we can ask the people for their continued support at the ballot box.

 

We have accomplished so much as a Council and I am confident that, together, we can achieve so much more for the people of Ottawa.

WHEREAS several developments in the past have been approved that did not fully require that work be undertaken to alleviate the existing drainages issues,

 

WHEREAS the City has recently developed a policy that requires proper drainage be undertaken on all development property

 

WHEREAS a development proposal has been filed for 1440 Bank Street that requires work be done to alleviate drainage issues, and that this property is at the northern end of the section between Heron and Rockingham and will therefore be expected to resolve all of the previous problems on this small site,

 

WHEREAS in order to comply with the new policy, the drainage costs currently being tendered to the development are far in excess of what would be anticipated under normal circumstance, with quotes in the range of $220,000 to $250,000,

 

BE IT RESOLVED that the City take the above into consideration and find that the developer should not be expected to absorb the full cost of the tendered contracts for solving the drainage issues of the upstream properties

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the developer be assessed a percentage of the cost of the drainage remediation that is in line with what would be expected for a lot of similar size
