City Council Preview – What’s on the Agenda for the October 25 Meeting?

One last meeting before the end of the month as council will be asked to approve the slate of decisions already made at Committee of the Whole, and there will be at least two other matters that require council’s attention. First, some small changes to a prominent Guelph board of directors, and second, council will be asked to approve some money for the development of affordable housing.

NOTE #1: Delegates will be able to appear at this meeting via telephone or video, but you do have to register with the clerks office before 10 am on October 22. 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:

Memorandum of Agreement between the City of Guelph and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 357 – Because this is a matter involving labour negotiations with a union, council  will discuss it in-camera.

County of Wellington Awards the City of Guelph Affordable Housing Funding Back In June, city council passed new policy to allow the County of Wellington to decide how to allocate money from the City of Guelph’s Affordable Housing Reserve. The first set of decisions are now in for council’s approval, and the County is suggesting $884,000 in funding for Grace Gardens at the old Parkview Motel, and $383,646 for a Youth Focused Supportive Housing program at 51 Bellevue Street at 721 Woolwich Street. This spending accounts for about half the money that’s presently in the reserve, which is $2.13 million.

Council Appointment to Downtown Guelph Board of Management, Board of Directors – Council Dan Gibson and one other councillor will be appointed to the board after council passes an amendment to the bylaw establishing the Downtown Board of Management. The changes have to do with the appointment of councillors to the board, which is to appoint one councillor from Wards 1,2 and 3 for one seat, and a councillor from Wards 4, 5 and 6 for the second seat.

Consent Agenda items from the Committee of the Whole meeting on October 4. (Items can be pulled by a councillor seeking additional information, otherwise all items will be voted on as a slate without further debate.)
