  Motions

Council Motions

# Movers Subject Disposition
1 Mayes, Pagtakhan That the Winnipeg Public Service be directed to investigate and report back to Executive Policy Committee on liability insurance and vehicle/equipment insurance costs for the General Council of Winnipeg Community Centres. AUTOMATIC REFERRAL TO THE EXECUTIVE POLICY COMMITTEE
2 His Worship Mayor Bowman, Allard That: 1.The report entitled “Annual Evaluations of City Council’s Four Statutory Officers” be amended as follows: (a)That Recommendation 3 be replaced with the following: 3.That an amendment to the In Camera by-law (draft attached as Appendix “A”) be enacted that will permit Council to meet in camera to consider internal performance reviews of the City Auditor. (b)That Appendix “A” be replaced with the draft by-law attached to this motion. CARRIED
3 Eadie, Schreyer That Council direct the Winnipeg Public Service to review the impact of the ‘Frontage Levy’ on the future operations and viability of religious & not for profit’ Cemeteries, and that representatives of all these cemeteries be consulted; That the Winnipeg Public Service report back to Council by July 30, 2017 on the financial implications to the City’s budget and recommended changes to Winnipeg by-laws to remove frontage levies on religious and not for profit cemeteries. AUTOMATIC REFERRAL TO THE EXECUTIVE POLICY COMMITTEE
4 Gillingham, Mayes That given the direction to bring the bulky waste collection into the Winnipeg Public Service, that the Winnipeg Public Service to be directed to report back to Council (through the appropriate Standing Policy Committee) for consideration prior to February 2017 with a plan that includes the results and costs from the analysis, timeline and process currently ongoing. CARRIED
5 Schreyer, Dobson That Item 2 of the Executive Policy Committee report dated December 7, 2016, be referred back to the Executive Policy Committee with the following instruction: 1.To report back on the terms of reference that shall govern Council and its conduct and rules prior to, during and in the review. LOST
6 Wyatt, Lukes That Item No. 5 of the Report of the Executive Policy Committee dated December 7, 2016 be referred back to the Executive Policy Committee with the following instructions: That the item be referred to the Winnipeg Public Service for report back within 30 days to Executive Policy Committee, and that the Winnipeg Public Service be required to provide a full and detailed written report, in terms of, but not limited to, the following: 1)A copy of and a detailed description of the legal agreement between the rail authority and the COW as referred to in the extract from the administrative report re: 1930’s; While every grade separation project is unique, the CTA guidelines for cost apportionment suggest that, for applicable City costs related to grade separation primarily due to road development, 85% be apportioned to the Road Authority, and 15% to the Rail Authority. In the present case, CN Rail has an additional obligation due to the existence of a legal agreement entered into by the City and CN Rail’s predecessors, The Canadian Northern Railway Company and The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company, in 1930, which was ratified by Council as By-law 13988 on July 7, 1930. This agreement required that CN Rail construct a 50 foot wide two-lane overhead bridge structure including two 5 foot sidewalks at Waverley Street. Over the years, land development in the area and increased traffic demand at this site has resulted in a two-lane overhead bridge not being a feasible means of grade separation. Nonetheless, the existence of this agreement obligates CN to bear a more significant cost apportionment for the present project. The negotiated settlement reflects the change from an overhead bridge to an underpass due to land development as well as an expanded facility to accommodate five traffic lanes and two active transportation paths across the CN right-of-way. 2)An explanation, as well as the rational used, why the rail authority is not being required to pay for the grade separation as defined today, as the obligation was equally defined to be the financial responsibility of the rail authority in 1930’s, now in light of the fact that a legal agreement setting such a precedent exists in the case of the Waverley crossing; 3)And further provide an explanation why, when such an existing legal agreement is in favour of the rail authority and not the roads authority, the rail authority always ensures any settlement, in such a scenario would reflect said fact, and why the roads authority, in this case the City of Winnipeg, does not use the same legal and financial position to protect the ratepayers of Winnipeg. LOST
7 Gillingham, Browaty That Council concur in the recommendations of the Winnipeg Public Service in the report dated November 1, 2016, contained in Item 1 of the Report of Standing Policy Committee on Property and Development, Heritage and Downtown Development dated December 5, 2016, namely: 1.That the Developer be required to enter into, execute and deliver a Servicing Agreement with the City containing all the conditions outlined in Schedule ‘B’ the report of the Administrative Coordinating Group dated November 1, 2016. 2.That the Winnipeg Zoning By-law No. 200/2006 be amended by rezoning the planned area as shown on Schedule “A” for File No. DAZ 211/2016 dated November 8, 2016 to an “RMF-M” Residential Multi-Family District, subject to the following: A.That the applicant enter into, execute and deliver a Zoning Agreement with the City of Winnipeg pursuant to Subsection 240(1) of The City of Winnipeg Charter to provide for the following: i.That final plans, showing the location and details of buildings, elevations, parking, landscaping, signage, garbage, lighting and fencing shall be submitted to the City Centre Community Committee and the Director of Planning, Property and Development for approval prior to the issuance of any building or development permits, and thereafter all to be constructed and maintained to the satisfaction of the Director of Planning, Property and Development. ii.That the height of any building shall not exceed forty-five (45) feet. 3.In lieu of the dedication of land, the Developer shall provide cash payment representing 10% of the appraised value of the Development Application, as determined by the City. 4.That in the event the matter is not proceeded with expeditiously and the by-law is not passed within two (2) years after adoption of the report by Council, the matter shall be deemed to be concluded and shall not be proceeded with unless an extension of time is applied for prior to the expiry of the two (2)-year period and Council approves the extension. 5.That the Director of Legal Services and City Solicitor be requested to prepare the necessary by-law in accordance with the above. 6.That the zoning section of the by-law shall come into force when the Zoning Agreement is registered in the Winnipeg Land Titles Office by caveat against the subject land within one year from the date the by-law is passed, failing which the by-law will expire and the matter shall be deemed to be concluded and shall not be proceeded with unless an extension of time is applied for prior to the expiry of the one year period and Council approves the extension. 7.That the Proper Officers of the City are hereby authorized to execute said Zoning Agreement. 8.That the Director of Legal Services and City Solicitor be requested to do all things necessary for implementation in accordance with the terms of The City of Winnipeg Charter.
