DELEGATION

Delegation #1 – Grey Sauble Conservation Authority (GSCA)

RE: Overview of services that are being provided in the municipality under the draft updated Planning Agreement between GSCA and Bruce County, and how these services support the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula (MNBP) Council’s decision

Sonya Skinner, CAO and Andrew Sorensen, Environmental Planning Coordinator, began their presentation on behalf of the Grey Sauble Conservation Authority (GSCA).

Ms. Skinner provided a brief background on conservation authorities including that the purpose of the organization is to help staff preserve the health and vitality of some of the most interesting places and ecosystems in Ontario. She noted that the GSCA has been providing its services to the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula since 1997. She outlined the services that the GSCA provides such as, comments on planning applications, responses to inquiries from residents and assistance to Municipal staff/ Building Department, as needed. 

Ms. Skinner explained that NBP is outside of the watersheds that are regulated by the GSCA, therefore MNBP is not a member of the authority. She further said that the GSCA board has directed her to seek compensation equivalent to full cost recovery for their support in the planning process in NBP.

Ms. Skinner indicated that the Federal Government is in the process of obtaining LiDAR data which will be very helpful to Municipal staff, specifically in the Building Department. 

A request of $15,000.00 annually is proposed by the GSCA. The options presented were as follows: charge each NBP applicant an additional fee on top of the $360.00 fee or NBP provide an annual lump sum payment of $15,000.00. 

Mayor McIver opened the conversation to questions/comments from Council. 

In response to an enquiry from Mayor McIver, Ms. Skinner confirmed that she believes that the Federal Government has completed the LiDAR scanning and the data will be made available within the next few months.

Mr. Sorensen advised that the GSCA processes approximately thirty (30) applications annually from the NBP.

Mayor McIver requested that staff bring back a report for Council’s consideration regarding the request from the GSCA.

Delegation #2 – Doug Embleton 

RE: request for daughter to be permitted to exchange her seasonal trailer site for mine

Mr. Embleton provided background in regards to his involvement with the Lion’s Head Beach Park Campground since he moved to Lion’s Head in 1998. 

Mr. Embleton’s delegation offered the following information:

Mr. Embleton applied for a lot at the park and made it to the top of the waiting list some years ago, at which time he was offered and accepted the seasonal Lot 30 for his trailer. Also, he paid a fee to be placed on a waiting list for a waterfront lot, as Lot 30 is a back lot. 

Mr. Embleton reached the top of the waiting list and was offered two (2) available waterfront lots, but the Campground Policies and Procedures do not permit his current trailer on either of these sites as his trailer exceeds the maximum permitted trailer length.

Mr. Embleton’s daughter also reached the top of the waiting list and was offered Lot 21, but this site allows a maximum trailer length of 28 feet with no slides.

Mr. Embleton’s daughter offered to take her father’s lease and move to Lot 30 for the 2020 season as her trailer is already there. 

Mr. Embleton’s daughter wishes to do a similar site-to-site move much the same as how the site vacated by Marshall Tigert was filled from within. 

Mr. Embleton requested that campground stakeholders be consulted before Campground Policies and Procedures are under consideration and further recommended that each site be assigned a site-specific maximum trailer length.

Mr. Embleton has been advised by Staff that he will remain at the top of the waiting list for a waterfront lot at the campground.

Mr. Embleton clarified to Council that he is requesting for his daughter to trade sites with himself, not transfer a lease, as she already has a lease in the campground.

Councillor Myles requested that a map of the Lion’s Head Beach Park Campground be created that depicts the maximum trailer size for each lot.

Council then requested that Mr. Tigert prepare a report to be brought back to Council for their consideration on Mr. Embleton’s request. 

CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS

1. Public Works Department Report No. PW 19-10 

RE: Moore Street Water Service Extension Request

Councillor Myles advised that she had consulted with some Moore Street residents via email questioning if they had any interest in extending the Moore Street water service. She indicated that out of the fourteen (14) emails she received replies from, 80% had no interest in the extension. The remainder were somewhat interested and one (1) resident was interested. 

Mr. Cameron informed Council that the two-inch (2”) line that extends another 100 metres on Moore Street would not accommodate many more hookups. 

Council discussed the options as presented in the report from the Public Works Manager and passed the following resolution:

Moved by J. Mielhausen Resolution #22-03-2019 Seconded by M. Myles 

THAT Council receives PW 19-10 Moore Street Water Service Extension Request as information;

2. Public Works Department Report No. PW 19-25

Moved by M. Myles Resolution #22-04-2019 Seconded by L. Golden

Council agreed to amend the draft Agreement and approve the Lease Agreement from May 1, 2019 to October 31, 2019 only as there is uncertainty as to the potential disbanding of the Bruce Peninsula Tourist Association.

RE: The Rotary Club of Northern Bruce Peninsula – Lease Agreement

Councillor Myles stated her position regarding the exclusivity of the Rotary Club’s use and operation of the bar at the Rotary Hall. She advised that preventing other party(ies)/renter(s) from obtaining a liquor licence at that facility may diminish interest in the facility being used for certain events. She also mentioned her commitment to fair policies, and further that weddings or other events rely on bar sales to make their events viable. 

Mayor McIver stated that he supports the lease as presented and acknowledges the importance of the Rotary’s exclusive liquor licence to the organization.

Moved by M. Myles Resolution #22-08-2019 Seconded by D. Myles

8. Facilities Supervisor Report No. FS 19-10

RE: Information and Updates

Councillor Golden commended Mr. Tigert on his informative report. She commented on the following:

the high registration for swimming lessons and the importance of offering the program

the aging sewage system components at various facilities and the need to look at a comprehensive replacement plan

the high use of the Tobermory tennis court, making Council’s decision a good one to make improvements to the court

the new cedar shingles on the cabin at the St. Edmund’s Museum

the need to discuss hydro at the Lion’s Head Beach Park Campground as there are issues

the benefit of the ice surface at the arena being installed September 24, 2019

Councillor Myles asked if we track gas used in Municipal vehicles to which Mr. Tigert replied that filling up Municipal vehicles at the harbour is beneficial as the type of gas used allows the vehicles to go much farther on a tank. He further stated that log records are kept at the harbour as well as in the particular Municipal vehicle. He indicated that this information is transferred at budget time. 

Councillor Myles requested more frequent and thorough updates on facilities. 

Moved by L. Golden Resolution #22-10-2019 Seconded by D. Myles

RE: 2019 One-Time Provincial Funding

Mr. Jones noted that the funds can be placed into a reserve for the future; however, staff, at Council’s request, prepared this report to include possible projects for consideration. 

Councillor Myles said that the funds are quite significant and should require much thought by Council before a decision is made as to where to allocate the funds. She mentioned that an investment in an Asset Management Plan would be beneficial to Council in terms of deciding what projects to complete. She further noted that the Strategic Plan may need updating. 

Councillor Golden expressed interest in moving forward in the future with the Little Tub Water Treatment expansion. 

Mr. Jones advised that the Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Asset Management Plan is closing this week. 

Moved by L. Golden Resolution #22-12-2019 Seconded by D. Myles

OTHER BUSINESS 

Presentation: Katherine Patterson, Parks Canada

After a brief discussion, Council approved the following resolution allowing Katherine Patterson, from Parks Canada, to address Council at this time. 

Moved by M. Myles Resolution #22-18-2019 Seconded by J. Mielhausen 

THAT Council agrees to permit Katherine Patterson from Parks Canada to address Council regarding the Big Tub water lot matter. Carried

Mayor McIver advised that Parks Canada will appear as a delegation at the August 12, 2019 meeting and the presentation package will form part of that Council agenda. 

Councillor Golden requested that members of the public be permitted to speak on this matter. Mr. Jones, CAO, recommended that Council listen to the presentation from Parks Canada and determine if public input should be permitted afterwards. 

Katherine Patterson

Ms. Patterson offered a PowerPoint presentation. She began by stating that Parks Canada strives to be transparent on its decision making and does not wish to overstep its authority.

Ms. Patterson spoke to the topic of the water lot at the Big Tub Harbour Resort and Marina. She stated that Transport Canada allows Parks Canada to either permit or restrict any vessels that are in restricted areas under the Canada Shipping Act, such as the area around the lighthouse and the shipwrecks in Big Tub Harbour. She further stated that Parks Canada does not have the authority to manage navigation on the waters.

As stated by Ms. Patterson, Parks Canada does own the water lot in question and the lake bed underneath, and further that Parks Canada has rights over the docks on the water lot. 

She then informed Council that Parks Canada is working on developing a Visitor Experience Strategy, with public consultation taking place this fall. 

Councillor Golden said that she does not deny that Parks Canada owns the water lot, but that it is outside of their boundaries and the jurisdiction of the study area. She denied Parks Canada’s authority to apply restrictions as that contravenes the Establishing Agreement. 

Councillor Golden then expressed that Parks Canada should try to work with local businesses and be more community friendly. 

In response to an enquiry from Councillor Myles, Ms. Patterson clarified that the lease is related to the water lot and the licence of occupation is related to access to Flowerpot Island. 

Brent Robins

Mr. Brent Robins stated the following: it is a violation of the Constitution to implement conditions on the water lot, what happens on the surface of the water lot is irrelevant, Bruce Anchor owns the anchorage and the docks on the water lot, and lastly that he has provided legal advice and is requesting that Parks Canada hire a marine lawyer if they wish to confirm that his legal advice is incorrect.

Bill Chesney

Mr. Bill Chesney was permitted to speak by Council on behalf of the Big Tub Harbour Citizens Committee. He began by thanking Bruce Anchor for their excellent service, then proceeded to express concerns. He addressed issues with bus traffic on Big Tub Road, parking, loading and unloading of Bruce Anchor passengers on the docks on the water lot and negative effects on the environment and visitors.

Councillor Myles stated that this matter may now be beyond the jurisdiction of the Municipality as it seems to be a dispute on legal interpretation. 

Councillor Golden requested that Council support its previous motion passed on June 24, 2019 until such time as documentation becomes available from Parks Canada stating that they do not have authority over the navigable waters. 

Deputy Mayor Myles asked Mr. Robins how Council’s support or opposition would affect this matter. Mr. Robins stated that the supporting motion from Council could find an avenue to work its way up the system and help himself and Bruce Anchor in their efforts.

Moved by L. Golden Resolution #22-19-2019 Seconded by J. Mielhausen

THAT Council reiterates its support of Resolution #19-03-2019 dated June 24, 2019 as follows:

THAT the Municipality contacts John Festarini, Acting Superintendent, and requests that he provide written confirmation from Transport Canada that Parks Canada has been delegated authority to control activities on the surface of the navigable waters in the Big Tub water lot;

AND THAT, if he cannot provide this information to our satisfaction, we request that Parks Canada allows Bruce Anchor Cruises to use the Big Tub water lot on bad weather days for its tour boat operation. Carried

Ms. Patterson stated that Parks Canada does not have authority over the navigable waters in the Big Tub water lot.

Council requested additional information from Ms. Patterson to be placed on the August 12, 2019 agenda.

The delegation from Parks Canada then concluded. 

Short Term Accommodation (STA) survey

Councillor Myles declared a conflict of interest with respect to the review of the Short Term Accommodation survey, excused herself from the Council table and took a seat in the audience. 

Council then discussed the draft Short Term Accommodation (STA) survey prepared by Skelton Brumwell and Associates. Mr. Jones advised that the survey did not arrive in sufficient time to meet the agenda deadline; however, to stay on track with the STA process timeline, the survey needs reviewed and approved by Council so that it can be launched to the public. Council discussed the draft survey as presented and made some corrections. Mr. Jones will inform Mr. Wynia, at Skelton Brumwell and Associates, of the changes Council has directed be made to the survey.

Councillor Myles resumed her place at the Council table.
