June 12, 2001
D.1.a.         Downstream Effects of the Whitemud/Terwillegar Plan (W. Kinsella).



 “Last week the Transportation and Public Works Committee received for         Transportation & Streets
 information a report on the downstream effects of the
 Whitemud/Terwillegar plan. The report said that ongoing monitoring and
 consultation would occur. My questions are to the Transportation and          Due: July 17, 2001
 Streets Department:
 1.      How will consultation with the affected communities take place?
 2.      What benchmarks have been put into place to measure changes
         against?
 3.      Will monitoring include air and noise as well as traffic numbers?
 4.      What is the proposed schedule for ongoing monitoring?
 5.      How will the results of ongoing monitoring be acted upon? How
         will any necessary changes be funded?
 6.      How will the effects of neighbourhood calming measures be
         evaluated, particularly the impacts on adjacent neighbourhoods?
 7.      Will the consultation take into consideration the area as a whole,
         that is the combined communities or will it look at individual
         neighbourhoods only?
 I would like the report to come back to the July 17, 2001 City Council
 meeting.”


D.1.b.         Failure in the Sewer Line in the Kennedale Ravine (W. Kinsella).


 “I understand that there was a major failure in a sewer line in the           Asset Mgmt. & Public
 Kennedale Ravine on or about June 1 with the result that raw sewage was       Works
 or has been spilling into the ravine and subsequently into the North
 Saskatchewan River. I would like a report from the Administration, for the
                                                                               TPW Committee
 June 19, 2001 Transportation and Public Works Committee meeting, on
 this situation. Specifically, I would like to know when the break occurred,
 what the extent of the contamination is, what involvement Alberta             Due: June 19, 2001
 Environment has had, when and how landowners and residents were
 informed, what kinds of reclamation need to take place and how the slope
 of the ravine will be stabilized to ensure that this does not happen again.
 Finally, I would like to know why City Councillors and the public were not
 informed of this situation and its implications?”

D.1.c.         Greater Edmonton Foundation’s (GEF) Belvedere Property
               (R. Noce).


 “The Greater Edmonton Foundation’s (GEF) Belvedere property                   City Manager
 (“property”) has been listed for sale since November 1999. To date, there
 are no pending offers to purchase the property.
                                                                               Due: June 26, 2001
 The Belvedere community has advised me that it is concerned about the
 vacant buildings on the property (eg. vandalism, etc.).

 The Belvedere community would like all of the buildings on the property
 demolished. The GEF supports this request because it believes that it
 would assist the GEF in selling the property. However, the GEF does not
 have the budgeted funds available in 2001 to demolish the buildings on the
 property.
 I would ask the City Manager to respond to the following questions:

 1.      What steps can the City of Edmonton take to assist the GEF with its
         desire to demolish the buildings on the property in 2001?

 2.      Would the City of Edmonton be prepared to allow the GEF to
         demolish the buildings in 2001 and make an adjustment to the GEF
         budget in 2001?

 I would ask the City Manager to respond to City Council by June 26,
 2001.”

E.1.d.        Equitable Relationship With the Province – Report of Federation of
              Canadian Municipalities National Board of Diversity Meeting Held in
              Sherbrooke, Quebec on March 7-10, 2001. (AUMA Survey on
              “Uploading” and Provincial Education Property Tax Reduction). 


MOVED W. Kinsella – D. Thiele
         1.   That the AUMA be sent a copy of “Closing the Gap – Implementation of the
              Long Range Financial Plan”.

         2.   That City Council report to AUMA that as part of our long range financial
              strategy, the City is in the process of reviewing which services might be better
              provided and financed by the Province. One good example will be ambulance
              services. Furthermore, in response to a recent survey about the Police Act,
              Council determined that policing should be a municipal service but receive
              additional financing from the Province.

         3.   With respect to part 2 of the questionnaire, Council clarify that the Province’s
              move to reduce education property tax had little influence on the City’s budget
              deliberations. The City would prefer to see AUMA focus on the development of
              additional revenue sources which would be of benefit to Alberta municipalities.

                                                                                          POSTPONED
MOVED J. Taylor – W. Kinsella
              That item E.1.d. be postponed until after Council has dealt with item E.1.i. –
              Property Taxes.

                                                                                                 CARRIED
