 Public Works
Communal Sewage Disposal System (CSDS) in the Town of Caledon
 

Regional Council approved the cost sharing agreement with South Slopes of Riverdale Farms Development for the design and construction of the Communal Sewage Disposal System (CSDS) for the Village of Inglewood in the Town of Caledon.

The Region of Peel considers this partnership initiative as a timely opportunity to plan for the wastewater servicing future needs of the existing Inglewood Community. Participation in the additional capital cost to build sufficient facility capacity to 2021 will provide the Inglewood Village core residents with the opportunity to connect to municipal system at any time and minimize the negative impact of urban runoff to the Credit River.

Update on the Odour Strategy at the South Peel Wastewater Treatment Facilities in the City of Mississauga
 

Regional Council approved that the Region of York be allowed to discharge wastewater flows to the Region of Peel near the end of 2004 in accordance with the York/Peel Wastewater Agreement.

Odour control measures such as the installation of permanent de-watering centrifuges at the Lakeview Wastewater Treatment Plant and the installation of permanent chemical feed locations in the collection system have been implemented. Several other initiatives are underway that will result in a significant improvement in the odour situation from the plant.

Extending the Bolton West Organics Demonstration Project
 

Regional Council approved the extension of the Organics Demonstration Project in Bolton West from October 31, 2002 to January 31, 2003.

The Organics Demonstration Project which began May 6, 2002 allows staff to monitor the amount of different waste streams set out to the curb and how many households are participating in the demonstration area.

The extension will provide sufficient time for staff to survey both residents participating in the project and residents outside of the demonstration area to get feedback on options for further extensions of the project.

'Best Practices' for Older Adults' Housing
 

Regional Council approved the submission of the report titled "'Best Practices' for Older Adults' Housing" to the Peel Advisory Working Group on Older Adults' Housing (AWG)" for its use as it continues to implement its Strategic Workplan.

'Best practice' has been defined as an exemplary model that has been identified by a key player in the field or through staff research projects. Key players included individuals from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), the Life Lease Associates of Canada, and the Abbeyfield Houses Society of Canada. In some cases, the 'best practices' included in this report have been formally recognized through awards.

Resolution Regarding the Impact of Inadequate Provincial Funding for Key Social Services on the Region of Peel and its Residents
 

Regional Council passed a resolution urging the Province of Ontario to appropriately fund programs related to Children's Services, Child Care Services, Adult Services and Development Services provided in the Region of Peel.

The Region of Peel supports the proposal of the Fair Share For Peel Task Force to eliminate the shortfall over an 8 to 10 year period by requesting the Minister of Community, Family and Children's Services to dedicate one half of one per cent of the Ministry's annual $2.7 billion budget for these programs in the Region of Peel.
