A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Michael Wright, Chair, Peel Advisory Working Group on Older Adults’ Housing (PAWGOAH) provided an overview of the PAWGOAH accomplishments in 2010 – 2011 which include presentations to agencies that serve older adults; attendance at seniors’ fairs, and; real estate sector training. Presentations and displays were provided to over 1,000 residents and 500 staff of agencies and the Region of Peel; more than 9,000 copies of The Care Guide were distributed and training sessions were held for over 100 real estate agents.

Michael Wright noted that the current name of the Committee is long, not easy to remember and is not easily recognizable and as a result, Regional Council approval is requested to change the name to “Housing Options for Older Adults in Peel (HOAP)”, along with the new tag line “Promoting Aging in the Right Place”.

Councillor Paterak expressed his appreciation to Michael Wright and the members of the working group, and particularly noted the efforts and contributions of Pat Chrisjohn, Policy Analyst with the Human Services department who provides support to the Committee, and indicated his support for the proposed name change and new tag line.

Councillor Foley suggested that representatives from PAWGOAH make a presentation to the Caledon Library which serves as centre for seniors activities in the community.

Councillor Hames inquired if the Region provides supports to seniors who would like to stay in their homes but require assistance with its maintenance and upkeep.

Janette Smith, Commissioner of Health Services, advised that the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) provides one-stop-shopping for finding a range of available support options and also determines eligibility for provincial funding. She noted that there is a lack of support services for seniors in the Central West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) catchment area and that one of the Term of Council priorities is to begin the process of making decisions on what services the Region of Peel should provide to the community.

Janette Smith suggested that Peel staff could work with staff of the LHINs and CCAC to determine how best to promote their services to the community.

Items Related to Human Services – Item HS-A1 was dealt with.

Received 2011-654

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Audrey Chiang, and Gary Gu, Steering Committee Members, Peel Chinese Community Services Hub, provided an overview of the services offered through the Chinese Community Services Hub which include community outreach, information and referral services, volunteer recruitment and training and space for service delivery. To date, the Community Services Hub has provided newcomer economic integration; reduced redundant program spending; provided free space for grass root/cultural groups and one-stop access to services and program information.

Audrey Chiang acknowledged the support for the Hub by the Region of Peel and in particular, Janet Menard, Commissioner of Human Services for her assistance in providing resources and monitoring services for the Hub and for providing advice and direction for moving forward.

Councillor Mullin congratulated Steering Committee members for providing one-stop access to services, noting that this kind of service helps to reduce anxiety.

c) Motilall Sarjoo, President and Cathy Davis, 1st Vice President, Brampton Mississauga and District Labour Council, Requesting a Donation for the Completion of a Monument to Honour Workers Injured or Killed on the Job in Peel

Referred to Corporate Services for report 2011-655

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Motilall Sarjoo, President and Cathy Davis, 1st Vice President, Brampton Mississauga and District Labour Council requested the financial support of the Region of Peel to help complete the Milestones of Labour – Injured Workers Monument which is currently under construction in the area of Queen Street West and McLaughlin Road in the City of Brampton.

Councillor McCallion stated that the City of Mississauga approved a donation in the amount of $10,000 for completion of the monument, however, it was not expected that the same request would be made to the Region of Peel. She noted that a contribution from the Region of Peel would result in Mississauga taxpayers paying 50 per cent of the Region’s contribution, in addition to Mississauga’s contribution. She further noted that the Labour Council aligns with area municipal responsibilities and that the Mayor of the Town of Caledon was not invited to the groundbreaking ceremony, which was attended by the Mayors of the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga.

Councillor Starr requested clarification with respect to the amount of funding required to complete the monument and the sources of funding.

Motilall Sarjoo advised that approximately $100,000 has been raised through contributions from local and national unions and it is estimated that a total of $150,000 is required to complete the monument. He noted that without donated goods and services, the cost of the monument would have been approximately $500,000.

Councillor Fennell suggested referring the funding request to staff to determine the most appropriate way to demonstrate that the Region of Peel is part of the effort. She noted that the City of Brampton has donated the land and servicing, all access and site parking and will provide maintenance in perpetuity. She stated that she would be proud to see the Region of Peel have recognition at the monument to salute ongoing efforts to raise awareness of the importance of workplace safety. She requested that staff report back to Regional Council in September with recommendations to commemorate the Region of Peel’s belief in workplace safety.

Councillor Mahoney suggested that the Labour Council not distinguish between labour and employers with respect to seeking support for the monument, noting that many corporate entities share the concerns and want to be partners on the issue of health and safety and the protection of workers. She requested that the Labour Council include in the proposed report information related to its outreach efforts and identify how the Region could assist in that regard.

Councillor Thompson requested that the Labour Council include the agricultural industry in its outreach efforts, noting that farm safety is also a workplace safety issue.

d) Dorothy Higgins, Resident, Mississauga, Regarding the Quality of the Food at Peel Manor Long Term Care Centre

Received 2011-656

See also Resolutions 2011-657 and 2011-658

Dorothy Higgins, Resident, Mississauga, expressed concerns with the quality of food at the Peel Manor Long Term Care Centre and requested that the Region of Peel increase its financial support by providing an additional $3.00 per day, per resident, over and above the amount provided through provincial funding. She further requested the Region of Peel to change the method of food preparation by purchasing fresh, whole foods that are cooked on site by a professional cook, overseen by an on site nutritionist.

e) Sandy Viana Tavares, Supervisor of Activation and Volunteers, Peel Manor Long Term Care Centre, Presenting a Letter Written by Anne Richardson, President, Peel Manor Resident Council, Expressing her Views of the Resident Council's Satisfaction with Food Services at Peel Manor

Received 2011-657

See also Resolutions 2011-656 and 2011-658

A copy of the letter is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Items Related to Health Services – Item HE-B1 was dealt with.

HE-B. LONG-TERM CARE

HE-B1. Dietary Services at Peel Manor Long Term Care Centre

Received 2011-658

See also Resolutions 2011-656 and 2011-657

Janette Smith, Commissioner of Health Services, stated that management and union staff have made improving the food services program at Peel Manor a priority, and that the “Order of the Inspector” was removed in June, following a two day visit by a Ministry of Health and Long Term Care Inspector.

In response to a question from Councillor Mullin, Janette Smith confirmed that the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care conducts unscheduled inspections based on complaints, as well as unannounced annual inspections.

Councillor Mullin inquired why it took so long to address the issues that were identified by the Ministry in September, 2010. Carolyn Clubine, Director, Long Term Care, responded that it was the duty of staff to look for the root cause of the problem and to identify what were originally thought to be more superficial problems. This review revealed that some equipment needed to be changed, detailed work routines were incomplete and that in some cases staff did not have skills or proper understanding meal preparation requirements.

Councillor Moore noted that once the concerns were identified, staff took ownership of the issue and have earned her confidence that they are taking the matter seriously to make things right.

Councillor McCallion confirmed that no Orders have been received at the other four Regionally operated Long Term Care Centres and that the food services issue at Peel Manor is an exception.

Councillor Palleschi expressed disappointment that the issue was identified through a resident complaint to the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and was not immediately resolved. He further noted that the Province of Ontario is partially to blame for the issue, noting that it provides only $7.33 per resident, per day, to provide for all meals and daily snacks.

In response to a question, Carolyn Clubine confirmed that the Region’s food service provider, Sysco Foods, provides only top quality meats and that products are only accepted from manufacturers and food producers that have federally inspected facilities and that providers of food must be able to provide for $2 million liability coverage against their products.

The Commissioner of Health Services was requested by Councillor Palleschi to provide Regional Council with a workflow that illustrates the timing of food preparation at Peel Manor Long Term Care Centre.

Councillor Fennell expressed her support for Peel Manor, noting that family members have resided there since 2003 and that the facility has supported the Meals on Wheels service for many years. She stated that the atmosphere at Peel Manor is one of family and home and that in her opinion, it is a wonderful facility. She suggested that the Intergovernmental Relations Advisory Committee include the issue of provincial funding to Long Term Care Centres in their advocacy efforts with the provincial government.

Councillor Tovey stated that he is confident staff will address the issues raised by Mrs. Higgins and extended his apologies to her and her family and the other affected Peel Manor residents.

f) Alex MacMillan, Member, Board of Directors and Annemarie Brunato, Project Manager, Habitat for Humanity Brampton (HFHB), Introducing Habitat for Humanity Brampton and Requesting Consideration to Waive Development Charges and Various Fees for HFHB Projects (Hoskins Square, Torbram Road South and McLaughlin Road North)

PW-C1. Report of the Arterial Roads Review Ad hoc Steering Committee (ARRASC-2011-1) meeting held on June 16, 2011

Moved by Councillor Saito;
Seconded by Councillor Sanderson;

That the report of the Arterial Roads Review Ad hoc Steering Committee (ARRASC-1-2011) meeting held on June 16, 2011, be adopted.

Carried 2011-677

Councillor Paterak stated that, in his opinion, the Arterial Roads Review Ad hoc Steering Committee (ARRASC) should be involved in developing protocols for dealing with operational issues rather than the actual operations and planning of arterial roads. Councillor Paterak requested that the future role of ARRASC be discussed further at its next meeting, scheduled for September 15, 2011.

Councillor Saito clarified that it was not the intent of the Committee to manage the daily operations of arterial roads, rather, the ARRASC will be working with staff on key issues to optimize the operations, cost and effectiveness of the roads, including planning issues that were not addressed in the consultant’s report.

Councillor Saito suggested that staff review the structure of the ARRASC and other Committees of Council to identify potential realignments that would provide for more efficient and effective discussion on key Regional issues. She stated that the proposed structure would still have detailed discussions at the committee level but would continue to look to Regional Council for authority to act.

Councillor McCallion concurred that the ARRASC should continue to meet since it has not dealt with the concerns identified by the City of Mississauga regarding planning issues and signage on Regional roads. Councillor McCallion stated that the area municipalities should have control of access to, planning and setbacks on regional roads, as well as the placement of signage. She suggested that the Committee look at the maintenance of Regional Roads and that the ARRASC should make decisions for more efficiencies and cost-effective measures with regards to the operation of regional and local roads. Councillor McCallion expressed concern the Committee has made little progress due to the limiting criteria set when the ARRASC was established.

PW-C2. Traffic Signal Warrant Analysis and Evaluation – All Wards

Referred to the Arterial Roads Review Ad hoc Steering Committee 2011-682

Councillor Tovey arrived at 1:24 p.m.

Councillor Saito suggested that a combination of the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) and the Ontario Traffic Manual Book 12 Traffic Signals Warrant Methodology be used when determining the feasibility of installing traffic signals, noting that the TAC methodology includes additional criteria not included in Book 12.

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works, stated that the three area municipalities within Peel utilize Book 12 and suggested that Peel and area municipal staff discuss the issue and report back to Regional Council in September, 2011.

Councillor Saito concurred that the warrant methodology throughout the Region of Peel should be consistent and moved referral of the subject report to the Regional Roads Review Ad hoc Steering Committee.

Councillor Sprovieri stated his support for the referral, noting that for newly developed areas in the vicinity of major roads, traffic signals are not constructed until the warrants have been met. He noted that construction of the signals can take up to a year and requested that staff consider a process where the traffic signals are ready for installation prior to the warrants being met.

Councillor Moore stated that the City of Brampton requires all new traffic signals to include a countdown pedestrian walk signal and that there is also a plan to phase in pedestrian countdowns at existing intersections. The Commissioner of Public Works confirmed that the Region of Peel practice with respect to pedestrian countdowns is consistent with the area municipalities.

Councillor Moore noted that developers are required to construct the infrastructure to facilitate the construction of traffic signals, however, the signals are not activated until the warrants are met. Councillor Moore stated that feedback from the City of Brampton Economic Development Office indicates that some lease agreements with anchor stores require signalized access to the plaza property and she suggested that Regional policies related to the installation and operation of traffic signals, where new commercial plazas are constructed, should include a measure of flexibility to enable them to become operational prior to the warrants being met.

Councillor Palleschi stated that if a developer wants traffic signals to be operational prior to the warrants being met, they should be required to pay the operating and maintenance costs until such time as the warrants have been met.

Councillor McCallion cautioned against operating traffic signals prior to warrants being met, stating that any exceptions should be based on sufficient information and data; not for political reasons.

Councillor Starr departed at 1:43 p.m., due to other municipal business.

PW-C3. The Condition of Noise Attenuation Walls Along Regional Roads and the Effectiveness of the Local Improvement Process

Moved by Councillor McCallion,
Seconded by Councillor Mahoney;

That the current levels of service for Region-owned noise attenuation walls be maintained;

And further, that Corporate Policy W30-04 Noise Attenuation Barriers, which uses the local improvement process to provide for a special assessment to homeowners to cost share 50:50 with the Region (subject to available funding), be maintained;

And further, that replacement of, or repair to private noise attenuation walls and/or fencing remain the responsibility of affected property owners.

Carried 2011-683

In response to a question from Councillor McCallion, Councllor Fennell stated that the City of Brampton provides for 75:25 cost sharing for private noise attenuation walls. She noted that the City has not fully utilized the policy and it is dependent on where the private noise walls are situated.

Councillor McCallion stated that the City of Mississauga currently provides 100 per cent funding for the replacement of deteriorated noise attenuation walls. She noted that there should be consistency in the policies related to the replacement and funding of private noise attenuation walls among the area municipalities and the Region of Peel.

Councillor Moore stated that there is a need to address the noise walls on Kennedy Road from Vodden Street to Townsend Gate and suggested that a 75:25 cost share policy with the Region of Peel would be more acceptable to the residents in the area.

Councillor Palleschi noted that Kennedy Road will be transferred to the City of Brampton and indicated that further discussions with area and Regional staff should take place to discuss the impact of the transfer with respect to funding and outstanding remediation issues.

Councillor Mullin stated that Council should not support additional services until the Region’s budget has been considered. She stated that the local improvement process has worked well over the years, however; she will not support any increase to services prior to Regional budget discussions.

PW-C4. Amendment of Controlled Access By-law 59-77

Moved by Councillor Mahoney,
Seconded by Councillor Mullin;

That the proposed Controlled Access By-law amendment be endorsed by Regional Council for discussion, in accordance with the report of the Commissioner of Public Works, dated June 9, 2011, titled “Amendment of Controlled Access By-law 59-77”;

And further, that the proposed amendment be reviewed with the City of Mississauga, City of Brampton, Town of Caledon, the Peel Goods Movement Task Force and the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD);

And further, that staff report back to Regional Council with any further amendments to Controlled Access By-law 59-77;

See also Resolution 2011-651

Councillor Saito stated that some residents in her Ward were notified of an upcoming watermain replacement project after they had their driveways newly paved. Upon completion of the project, only the portions of the driveway impacted by the project were refurbished and the residents must pay to have the remainder paved. She stated that in these types of instances, the Region needs to remediate and fix the issue for the impacted residents.

Councillor Palleschi suggested that water shut off valves should be located on the lawn side of the property instead of the driveway side.

The Commissioner of Public Works undertook to follow up directly with those Councillors who identified issues with driveway restorations in their areas.
