PUBLIC MEETING

Public Meeting for Fees and Charges By-law

By-law No. 2021-01

Mayor McIver opened the meeting to the public for comments regarding the Fees and Charges By-law. No comments from the public were received. 

Councillor Myles questioned if a review was undertaken to ensure the Municipality is aligned with comparators. She commented on the busyness of the Lion’s Head Campground and Lion’s Head and Tobermory Harbours and noted that the fees should represent their value and there may be an opportunity to generate more funds from those assets to reinvest into waterfront areas. Councillor Myles said that “on peak and off peak” prices could be considered and the Wi-Fi fee for the Lion’s Head Campground should be removed and included in your stay.

Ryan Deska, Community Services Manager, stated that the rates were slightly increased and he can provide a report detailing a thorough analysis of the fees and charges and a strategy for shifting into an “on peak/off peak” structure.

Councillor Golden stated that the fees should not be increased too much as locals need to be able to afford the applicable fees at the Harbours and Campground.

Deputy Mayor Myles referenced Section 13 of the draft Fees and Charges By-law and recommended that a resident and non-resident off season rate be consistent with fee structures between both Tobermory and Lion’s Head Harbours.

Councillor Myles asked what the most popular options are at the Lion’s Head Harbour, such as the seasonal launch fee. She suggested that the Port Elgin Study be used for information. 

Council and staff discussed the passage of the proposed 2021 Fees and Charges By-law and agreed to consider the above noted comments for the 2022 Fees and Charges By-law.

DELEGATION

Delegation #1

Sarah Cowley, Coordinator for Grey-Bruce CSWBP and Christine MacDonald, Director of Human Services, Bruce County 

RE: Community Safety and Well-Being Plan

Mayor McIver welcomed Sarah Cowley and Christine McDonald to the meeting via Zoom.

Due to internet issues, Christine McDonald presented on behalf of Sarah Cowley and stated that the Community Safety and Well-Being Plan (CSWBP) outlines priority areas of risk for action within Bruce and Grey Counties. She advised that the goal is to create safe and sustainable communities that will result in a reduction of crime across the region. The CSWBP encompasses two (2) counties and sixteen (16) municipalities who have all worked together to create the shared plan.

The CSWBP framework was discussed by Christine McDonald. She said that social development and prevention will be areas of focus. The CSWBP Advisory Committee includes representation from all eight (8) police forces and totals seventy-two (72) partners at the table including health/mental health providers.

The creation of the plan involved public participation of approximately 2,000 residents from Grey and Bruce Counties by way of a public survey. Christine McDonald noted that the Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention (CMNCP), the Halton Region Community Safety and Well Being collaborative, and the Ontario Municipal Social Services Association (OMSSA) assisted in the creation of the CSWBP. 

The project timeline was presented to Council. November and December 2020 include both Christine McDonald and Sarah Cowley presenting the CSWBP to participating municipalities.

Christine McDonald provided an overview of the five (5) priority areas for action:

Priority Risk Area #1- Addiction/Substance Use explained that regular heavy drinking is an issue in Grey and Bruce Counties as more than half of emergency department visits are linked to alcohol and opioid-related visits have almost tripled.

Priority Risk Area 2- Mental Health indicated that 20% of residents are experiencing overwhelming stress and 15% are seeking assistance for their mental health needs. 

Priority Risk Area 3- Crime Prevention revealed that criminal court cases have increased over time with a 27% increase in 2019-2020 and the Grey Bruce rate of emergency department visits regarding assault is higher than the Ontario rate.

Priority Risk Area 4- Housing & Homelessness suggested that there are fewer rental dwellings in Grey and Bruce Counties and average housing prices are increasing. Seasonal housing numbers are high in Northern Bruce Peninsula.

Priority Risk Area 5- Poverty and Income presented that median household income in Grey and Bruce Counties are lower than Ontario and approximately 20% of children are living in poverty. There is a higher need for support from various organizations and over 25% of residents spend more than 30% of their income on housing.

Councillor Golden agreed with the majority of the identified priorities, especially housing issues. 

Christine McDonald stated that there is a focus on local solutions and collective impact between all sectors; an Indicator Report is being developed; resources are required to implement the plan; and a coordinator is needed to move forward with the CSWBP. 

Councillor Myles questioned how often the CSWBP will be reviewed and if there are any actual actions that will be identified. Christine McDonald confirmed that there she is awaiting Ministry requirements to determine the frequency of plan review/updating and the CSWBP Advisory Committee will work on determining actions at their first meeting in January 2021.

Christine McDonald advised that ninety (90) survey responses were from Northern Bruce Peninsula. 

Mayor McIver thanked Christine McDonald and Sarah Cowley for their presentation.

Delegation #2

Matthew Meade, Corporate Strategic Initiatives Specialist, Bruce County

RE: Land Use Planning Services Memorandum of Understanding- Council Update and Next Steps

Mark Paoli, Land Use Planning Manager, Bruce County, joined the meeting via Zoom and indicated that the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will be updated to make roles clearer and more consistent. He noted that the current MOU is outdated and there is an increased demand for County planning services. He advised that the draft MOU is being presented to local municipalities for review and comment and a final draft will be created and brought before Bruce County Council for adoption.

Mary Ellen Bench, Senior Advisor, Strategy Corp. Inc. stated that Bruce County and local municipalities play a significant role, and the Planning Act dictates timelines. She said that municipalities update their official plans and zoning by-laws in accordance with the County’s documents. Mary Ellen Bench outlined shared responsibilities as follows: County staff will circulate applications notices, meetings and decisions; the municipality will be responsible for all other administrative tasks; the County will update GIS data and share that information with municipalities; planners can visit municipalities to correspond with the public, staff and council; and in the case of an LPAT appeal, both parties will assist in the process. 

Mary Ellen Bench discussed the benefits and examples of two-way communication including that the County will share information with municipalities with respect to legislative changes from the Province. She mentioned that the Chief Administrative Officers will share their planning workplans at the beginning of each year to the County. Regarding fees, she explained that planning application fees are received and processed through the County and special projects, such as a zoning by-law reviews will be invoiced to the applicable municipality. Mary Ellen Bench informed that the agreement is for a five-year term and one year’s notice is required if a party wishes to terminate the agreement. 

In response to an inquiry from Councillor Myles, Mark Paoli confirmed that there is no change to fees affecting the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula (MNBP) moving forward; however, the fee for individual applicants has increased. He noted that the County is looking at 100% cost recovery from the planning applicant. Mark Paoli indicated that comments will be reviewed at the CAO meeting next week and the final draft of the MOU will be presented to Bruce County Council in December. 

Mayor McIver thanked the presenters.
