Richmond Hill Council Meeting Monday September 13th at 1:30pm
The meeting lasted almost 4 hours.
There were only 3 items on the agenda for discussion.
Approvals granted during the Delegated Authority Summer Recess-Passed
Paul Nolis regarding service at Muirhead Crescent-referred back to Staff
Council Compensation for 2022-2026 term of office-Staff instructed to continue search for citizens to sit on Council Compensation Review Committee
Due to constant disruptions it took 97 minutes just to adopt the agenda.
A resident who had a delegation was forced to wait 1 hour and 45 minutes because of the constant interruptions.
The last hour of the meeting (part 2) was after the closed session. It went smoothly with good discussion about Council Compensation and without any disruptions.
Councillors Perrelli and Beros had not returned to the meeting after the closed session.
Interesting items on the agenda include:
That Council provide direction on options to set the Council compensation for the 2022 to 2026 Term of Council.
Not enough citizens applied to sit on the Council Compensation Review Committee so Staff need direction to address compensation for Members of Council for the 2022 to 2026 Term of Council..
Correspondence and delegation from Paul Nolis regarding municipal services to Muirhead Crescent (north east corner of Yonge and Stouffville Rd.)
The Muirhead Community is requesting and demanding that the 2016 Council Approved and Council Directed, residents petition that was included in the 10 year capital Plan and Budget to deliver water and sewage services to Muirhead Crescent be immediately recommenced and reinstated.
On November 10, 2020, Council paused the Muirhead Crescent and Stouffville Road Watermain and Sanitary Sewer Servicing Project as a result of several area specific issues that would require future information to ensure a proper design of the requested services.
It was recommended by Council that City Staff re-engage the community to ensure the support remains positive. This was undertaken by virtual public meeting and re-petitioning the community in February and March 2021.
The petition results determined that there was not sufficient support to continue with the project in accordance with Ontario Regulation 586/06.
On May 26, 2021 Council voted to cancel the project.
