Consolidation of the Region of Peel Traffic By-law 57-2005


Regional Council enacted By-law 15-2013, which reconsolidates and amends the By-laws that regulate roads under the jurisdiction of the Region of Peel. There have been a number of amendments to the Region’s Traffic By-law, By-law 57-2005, and consolidation provides for an efficient and well managed Traffic By-law. New offences have been added to Part I and Part II to the Set Fine Schedules, including fines related to driving a vehicle in a roundabout in the wrong direction and driving in an approved bus lane. The proposed set fines under Parts I and II will be submitted to the Regional Senior Justice of the Ontario Court of Justice for approval, upon which, copies of the consolidated Traffic By-law and Set Fines schedules will be provided to the area municipal by-law enforcement offices, as well as, Peel Regional Police and the Ontario Provincial Police – Caledon Detachment.

Storage Network Unified Storage and Back-up Solutions


Regional Council awarded a contract for SAN (Supply Area Network) to Gibraltar Solutions Inc. for a 36 month term, in the amount of $751,768.41, excluding taxes. The contract may also be extended for an optional 12 months depending on performance and service.

The Region’s current corporate computing storage equipment is not able to continue to meet the computing storage needs of the Region.

Some of the benefits of the new storage equipment are: more reliable storage that will eliminate the possibility of loss due to hardware failure; faster storage using the latest high performance drives; more efficient storage means less wasted space; lower energy consumption; and ease of operations.
