Motions (City Council)
Review Order Paper

November 27, 2012 at 10:20 a.m. - Speaker Nunziata advised Council of the following:

 

Members, let me make a brief announcement before we start our agenda.

Yesterday's decision of the Superior Court of Justice is not before us at this meeting.

 

However, to ensure that all Members of Council and the public have the same information about the City's situation as a result of the court decision, I will be asking our City Solicitor to make a brief public statement after we have approved the Order Paper and before we consider our first item.

 

Council will now review the Order Paper.

 

The Mayor has designated two key matters for this meeting.  The first item will be Public Works and Infrastructure Committee Item PW19.1 headed " Draft By-law to Enact City Council's Decision to Prohibit Single-Use Plastic Carryout (Shopping) Bags, and Industry Comments on the Draft By-law and Implementation Plan".  That item will be considered as the first item of business tomorrow, Wednesday, November 28.

 

The Mayor's second key matter is New Business Item CC28.6 headed "Making Room for Jobs - Protecting an Employment Area in Etobicoke Lakeshore".  This item will be considered as the second item of business tomorrow, following the Plastic Bag matter.

 

Council is scheduled to meet in closed session at 6:00 p.m. tonight, if required.  The Notices of Motions run through is scheduled for 2 p.m. tomorrow.

 

In the event Council doesn’t complete the agenda by the 8:00 p.m. adjournment time tomorrow night, Council will continue meeting on Thursday, November 29 to complete the agenda.

 

The City Clerk has noted the Items that Members wish to hold.

 

Under Council’s procedures, an item must be urgent in order to be made time specific.  An urgent matter relates to a significant emergency health or safety matter, or relates to a significant financial, legal, or contractual deadline before the next Council meeting.  I will recognize requests to make matters urgent and time specific after I go through the Items for additional holds.

 

Following the adoption of the Order Paper, the City Solicitor made a brief public statement about the City's situation as a result of the court decision in Magder vs. Ford and answered questions from Members of Council.

2.         City Council modify the Policy for City-Owned Space Provided at Below-Market Rent so that new spaces made available for community use through the City's surplus property disposal process or negotiated in Section 37 agreements are allocated through a competitive process except where a local development process has already taken place and:

 

a.         The preferred tenant identified through the local development process meets all of mandatory eligibility criteria of the standard competitive process; and

4.         City Council direct the Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration to report back to City Council at the earliest opportunity following approval of a capital plan for the Toronto District School Board on the impact of the plan on City and community use of schools, the implementation of the Province's new "Schools First Child Care" policy, existing child care centres within schools, and community use of green space.
