3. Public Works Department Report No. PW 20-22

RE: Continued Closure of Waste Disposal Sites

Councillor Golden recommended that some measure be implemented allowing residents to dispose of household waste at the landfill sites. She suggested a “free dump day” that would allow ratepayers to dispose of built-up yard waste laying around on properties. 

Councillor Myles stated that crowding at the landfill sites may occur if there was a “free dump day”. She suggested that, if businesses only can apply for credit accounts at the landfills, their accounts be shared with others who are in need of waste disposal. 

Deputy Mayor Myles proposed that landfill sites be open to residents based on the first letter of your last name.

He recommended that the landfill site operations remain status quo, open three (3) days a week to account holders only, until the credit/debit machines are installed and operational. He said that training of staff will be required once the machines are installed and the landfill sites may then be open to the public operating under the regular summer hours.

RE: Final Lighthouse Location

Mr. Deska stated that there may be a slight delay in the lighthouse project timeline as per conversations with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO).

Specific to the usability of the pier, Mr. Deska said that a seating area with railings may be an option; however, this needs further investigation.

RE: Refund Policy for Facilities RE: COVID 19

Lengthy discussion ensued and the following was noted:

processing Harbour refunds may place an extra burden on staff

the electrical issue at the Lion’s Head Campground does factor into decisions regarding refunds in addition to the COVID-19 pandemic

a previous Council resolution that reflects the Campground be closed until June 1, 2020 should be amended to state “until further notice” in order for work on the Campground to be completed. The Clerk advised that, according to the Procedural By-law, a member of Council must present a Notice of Motion for consideration of the intent to change the wording of the previously approved motion

Mr. Deska will be presenting a staff report at the May 11, 2020 Council Meeting pertaining to the electrical issues at the Campground

work is likely to be completed at the Campground in time for the season to open

direction on how to proceed with electrical upgrades at the Campground may need to occur soon for the electrician to begin work

options for dealing with the Campground electrical issues include closing down the waterfront sites, of which there are 18, due to high water erosion and electrical issues, completely reinstalling electrical wiring in the Campground or temporarily fixing the electrical issues while working on a broader strategic plan for the Campground

a Special Council Meeting may be called prior to the next regular Council Meeting on May 11, 2020 to discuss the Campground and Harbours

fees for the Campground and Harbours could be prorated

staff need to continue to adhere to Provincial regulations and public health guidelines

if more than one (1) month of the season is impacted, then rates can be adjusted accordingly; and 

a lease holder at the Tobermory Airport has requested a refund as they will not be operating the helicopter tours for the 2020 season and Council approved this request and the extension of the lease to 2021.

The following discussion occurred with respect to the Ferndale Information Centre:

The tourism season is likely to be affected this year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; 

Councillor Golden said that the Ferndale Information Centre is valuable, especially if the Province reopens;

Councillor Myles commented on the minimal number of visitors at the Ferndale Information Centre when tourism was operating at full capacity and the Municipal funds that are required to operate the facility

Councillor Myles recommended that the $30,000.00 allocated to operating the Ferndale Information Centre for the season be used elsewhere where a greater benefit is received

Councillor Golden stated that the tourism industry is the largest industry in the area and visitors will need more direction than usual this year following the reopening of the Province

Mayor McIver suggested working with the Tobermory Chamber of Commerce for the 2020 season in respect to operating the Ferndale Information Centre, if the Province reopens; and 

Moved by J. Mielhausen Resolution #21-13-2020 Seconded by L. Golden 

THAT, for harbours and the campground, Council defers consideration of a set weekly refund for slip holders and campers;

AND THAT the Manager of Community Services is instructed to contact all slip holders and campers advising that the Municipality intends to be flexible and fair as it relates to fees and, if necessary, a Special Meeting of Council will be scheduled to discuss this matter further;

AND THAT, for the airport, Council approves an amendment to the Lease Agreement with Blue Heron Tours by deleting the year 2020 and replacing with 2021 as Blue Heron Tours has advised the Municipality that the business will not be operating in 2020;
