City Council Preview – What’s on the Agenda for the June 29 Meeting?

The one last city council meeting before the end of June will be a relatively light affair compared to the very content heavy COVID-19 meeting last week.

NOTE #1: Delegates will be able to appear at this meeting via telephone, but you do have to register with the clerks office before 1o am on June 26. You can also submit written delegations and correspondences for agenda items.

NOTE #2: The meeting will be closed to the public, though it will be live-streamed on the City of Guelph’s website here.

CLOSED MEETING: June 2020 Public Appointments to Advisory Committees, Local Boards, Agencies, Commissions and Associations – Council will meet in-camera to discuss the appointments to fill vacancies on the various boards and committees.

June 2020 Public Appointments to Advisory Committees, Local Boards, Agencies, Commissions and Associations – Once everything is finalized in-camera, council will approved the first nine members of the Natural Heritage Advisory Committee, plus two new members each for the Property Standards Committee and the Wellbeing Grant Application Panel, and one member each for the Transit Advisory Committee, and the Solid Waste Management Master Plan Public Advisory Committee.

PS-2020-01 238 Willow Road Application – Guelph Independent Living is converting two rec rooms into two new apartment units at 238 Willow Road. Seeing as how these are affordable units, City staff have determined that GIL will only pay cash-in-lieu for the increased density, and not for the overall size of the property, in order to fulfill the financial requirement for the Parkland Dedication Bylaw.

The Elliott Community, Consent to Guarantee External Financing – Way back in February 2018, city council voted to approved a request from the Elliott Community to take on $2 million in debt from an external lender to fund much needed repairs and improvements to the facility. One of these repairs was the roof, which, in a letter to the City earlier this month, turned out to be much more costly than predicted, which is partially why the Elliott is asking the City to approve for them an increase to that external financing to $4 million. With the additional money, the Elliott will finish the roof, and make other mandated changes in response to COVID-19.
