Tenders and Requests for Proposals

  • None presented


  • Committee of the Whole recommends the approval of the technical and functional program for the Riverview Recreation Complex as presented and that it should be used as the foundation for the following steps to continue to move this project forward:
  1. Review and update the Long Term Capital and Financial plan to include the projected costs for this project in the plan and to make other adjustments to the assumptions in the longer term plan based on updated information and re-evaluate other projects to fit this in the plan within Council’s affordability parameters;
  2. Continue to provide Town support and assistance to the Fundraising Committee who will be executing the fundraising campaign in 2020 and beyond;
  3. Direct staff to finalize the analysis of the design and construction approach the Town should use with this project and modify the financial projections for this project based on the design and construction approach that will be utilized; and
  4. The Town take active steps to continue to attempt to secure federal and provincial government funding support for this project (or alternatively secure a similar level of financial support for other projects in the Town’s ten year plan that allows the overall affordability of the ten year plan to remain).
  • Committee of the Whole recommends that Council should declare a state of climate emergency.
  • Committee of the Whole recommends that Council direct staff to take the necessary steps to proceed with the process for consideration of the change to the Municipal Plan, the Zoning By-Law and the Controlled Access By-Law as outlined in the presentation by Kirk Brewer.

These recommendations will be brought forward for adoption at the next Regular Council Meeting. View files associated with these recommendations in the agenda for this meeting.
