DELEGATION

Jessica Linthorne, Manager, Strategic Initiatives, Town of Saugeen Shores 

RE: Municipal Innovation Council Partnership Opportunity Between Bruce County Municipalities and Nuclear Innovation Institute

Mayor McIver welcomed Jessica Linthorne from the Town of Saugeen Shores to the meeting. Ms. Linthorne described the role of the Town of Saugeen Shores in terms of the Municipal Innovation Council partnership opportunity, including that a lease agreement has been signed between Saugeen Shores and the Nuclear Innovation Institute (NII). As part of the agreement, Saugeen Shores will lead the Municipal Innovation Council (MIC). The MIC will work with NII and have access to NII resources. In addition, the NII will provide space for 1-2 people to work on advancing the MIC. 

Ms. Linthorne explained that Saugeen Shores has attempted to be innovative, however, there are barriers to innovation including lack of staff and funding. The MIC project is a three (3) year pilot project. The project will include quarterly MIC meetings and the hiring of a Municipal Lab Director funded by MIC partners. Ms. Linthorne stated that the MIC will transform municipal business and work and incorporate strategic thinking and solutions that will create efficiencies and ensure sustainability.

The MIC areas of focus were outlined by Ms. Linthorne as follows: construction and infrastructure, IT and digital services, municipal sustainability and liveable communities. 

In order to fund the MIC, Ms. Linthorne informed Council that a contribution of $24,672.00 is needed from Northern Bruce Peninsula in order to participate. She recommended that Council utilize some funds from the provincial one-time funding grant. 

Ms. Linthorne advised that the Township of Huron-Kinloss has already committed to the MIC. She explained that a benefit of the MIC would be the hiring of the Municipal Lab Director, as he/she would be tasked to look for efficiencies and find answers to municipal challenges. 

Ms. Linthorne indicated that the NII is a registered non-profit organization funded by membership fees. She said that the NII is interested in the partnership as they want to ensure that the region is supported and sustainable, and further that Bruce County is perceived as a great place to live.

Mayor McIver advised Ms. Linthorne that Council will notify her of their decision. 

Mr. Jones stated that he will prepare a staff report on the MIC to be brought forward for Council’s consideration. 

Mayor McIver thanked Ms. Linthorne for her presentation on the MIC.

AND FURTHER THAT the Niagara Escarpment Commission (NEC) has taken a leadership role as the convener, however as a government agency with a primarily regulatory role, there are limitations to the role the NEC can and should play in leading all biosphere reserve functions: (1) conservation of biodiversity and cultural diversity; (2) sustainable and culturally appropriate development; and (3) logistic support (demonstration projects, education, monitoring, knowledge sharing);

AND FURTHER THAT the NEC will continue to have significant involvement from a secretariat/logistic/support perspective, but a shared responsibility at a grassroots level is a key objectives to UNESCO;

AND FURTHER THAT, through a facilitated process (workshops, interviews and research), the NEBR has established a Transitional Leadership Committee (TLC) for a one-year term;

AND FURTHER THAT the TLC’s mandate is to develop a permanent organization that, distinct from the NEC’s regulatory role, can support grassroots, community-based programs.

AND FURTHER THAT an invitation to join the TLC and participate in the workshop was circulated to Council on August 13, 2019 by email, and on the Council agenda of August 26, 2019, and Councillor Megan Myles expressed interest in the position and was subsequently nominated;

AND FURTHER THAT all the nominees (10) participated in a ranked voting process to select members of the TLC and Councillor Megan Myles was selected through this process;

AND FURTHER THAT it would be of benefit to the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula to have representation on this committee to express local interests, share knowledge and collaborate with other Niagara Escarpment stakeholders;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT Council, after due consideration and discussion, hereby supports the appointment of Councillor Megan Myles to the Transitional Leadership Committee (TLC) of the Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve (NEBR).
