6. COMMUNICATIONS

a) Ernie Hardeman, MPP, Oxford, Letter dated September 25, 2006, Attaching a Resolution Calling on the Provincial Government to Balance the Delivery of Municipal Services with the Ability to Pay by Expediting the Promised Provincial-Municipal Fiscal and Service Review, and Requesting Council Endorsement to Adopt a Similar Resolution

Received 2006-1033

See also Resolution 2006-1034

Moved by Councillor Miles,
Seconded by Councillor Palleschi;

Whereas the gap between the transfers from the province and the cost of social programs is growing and is now estimated by the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) at over $3 billion;

And whereas, delays in balancing the cost of delivering services with the ability to pay are resulting in delayed maintenance of infrastructure, reduced municipal services and property tax increases across the province;

Therefore be it resolved, that in the opinion of the Council of the Regional Municipality of Peel, the provincial government's currently proposed Provincial-Municipal Fiscal and Service Delivery Review, which will not be completed until February 2008, after the next provincial election, is needlessly drawn out and that a full review to balance the delivery of service with the ability to pay should be completed much more expediently, in order to avoid hitting taxpayers with unsustainable property tax hikes or significant reductions in service.
