5. STAFF PRESENTATIONS


6. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION

a) Oral Submissions- Brian Wilding, Brampton Resident

Brian Wilding, Resident of the City of Brampton, raised concerns about the proposed increases in user fees and charges for the use of Community Recycling Centres (CRC). Mr. Wilding requested an explanation of why the type of vehicle used to drop off material would result in different fees. Damian Albanese, Acting Commissioner of Public Works, noted the different fee based on vehicle type applied only in circumstances where the weigh scales at the CRC were not functioning.

Mr. Wilding questioned why staff was distributing information indicating the fees would be effective July 9, 2004 when Regional Council had not yet approved the proposed changes to the fees and charges for the use of CRCs. Damian Albanese indicated that there was an error on the memo circulated by staff and it should have clearly stated that the proposed fees and charges will be effective July 9, 2004, subject to the approval of Regional Council.

Mr. Wilding stated that the fees and charges were different for the disposal of certain materials in Brampton in comparison to Caledon. Damian Albanese clarified this situation explaining that the CRC in Caledon is located at a landfill site and as such clean fill material, necessary for the operation of the landfill, can be disposed of free of charge.

Councillor McCallion highlighted the need for consistency in fees charged, and indicated her strong belief in their use.

Councillor Sprovieri expressed his appreciation to Mr. Wilding for coming forward with his views.

Council responded to the concerns raised by Mr. Wilding by directing Public Works staff to delay the implementation of the new fees and charges for the use of CRCs until August 1, 2004.

b) Written Submissions
