15.    OTHER BUSINESS

    i)    TOWN OF BANCROFT.  OPP BILLING IN UNORGANIZED TOWNSHIPS.

        Pages:  31-32

14-    WHEREAS the Township of Carling is in receipt of the new OPP Billing Model which will see invoices split between base costs and calls for service on an approximate 60/40 split;

    AND WHERAS all municipalities will pay the same base cost per property, which is estimated at $203.00 per property;

    AND WHEREAS the new model received Cabinet approval on August 13, 2014 and will commence on January 1, 2015, to be phased in over five years;

    AND WHEREAS the Province is currently responsible for policing costs associated with unorganized townships;

    AND WHEREAS the Town of Bancroft has passed a resolution requesting the Province to implement a billing method for those properties located in unorganized townships;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Carling Township Council does hereby endorse the resolution passed by the Town of Bancroft and request the Province to implement a billing method for those properties in unorganized townships so those properties contribute to their fair share of policing costs;

AND FURTHER BE IT RESOLVED that this resolution be forwarded to the Premier, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, Ministry of Finance, AMO, MPP Norm Miller, and all municipalities serviced by the OPP.


ii)    FUEL DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM

    Pages:  33-34

14-    NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that upon the recommendation of the Public Works Superintendent, Council for the Township of Carling accepts the quote from Fuel Master for the supply and installation of an Automated Fuel Management System in the amount of $15,710.84 with HST being $2,042.00 for a total amount of $17,753.00 this being the lowest of (3) proposal received.


iii)    TOWNSHIP OF MCKELLAR.  NEW OPP BILLING MODEL

    Pages:  39-40

14-    WHEREAS the Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, Mr. Yasir Naqvi announced a new OPP billing model to take effect on January 1, 2015 based on calls for service and base costs;

AND WHEREAS the effect of the new billing model is to shift policing costs from urban centres to small rural communities;

AND WHEREAS the shift in costs is more pronounced in communities with a large number of seasonal households;

AND WHEREAS the Federal Government’s definition of households does not include seasonal dwellings as households and therefore may affect the new formula;

AND WHEREAS the new funding formula will force small rural communities to consider alternative policing arrangements, cuts to existing programs and services, depletion of capital reserves or major increases in taxes;

AND WHEREAS there will be no increase in OPP levels of service;

AND WHEREAS the new funding formula will mean an increase for the Township of Carling in OPP costs from $174,318 in 2014 to $445,120 in 2015 or an increase of 255 percent not accounting for the five year phase in adjustment;

AND WHEREAS there is nothing in the new funding formula which controls future OPP cost increases;

AND WHEREAS the new OPP funding formula will negatively affect over 130 small rural municipalities;

AND WHEREAS unorganized municipalities have not been considered in this new formula;

AND WHEREAS small rural communities do not have the economic ability to generate new tax revenues from commercial property to off-set new costs;
AND WHEREAS the larger urban municipalities are going to receive savings on new OPP costs and yet have the higher calls for service and crime rate;
        
AND WHEREAS this means that small rural seasonal communities that are relatively safe communities are subsidizing larger urban centres;

AND WHEREAS the overall OPP review process was flawed whereby the many resolutions, delegations and depositions by various communities were not listened to; the various committees that were established were weighted in favour of larger communities and the results appear to have been predetermined;
    
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Council for the Township of Carling reiterate its objection to the new OPP billing model and call on the Premier of Ontario, The Honourable Kathleen Wynne, the Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, Mr. Yasir Naqvi, the Auditor General, Ms. Bonnie Lysyk and the Ombudsman, Mr. Andre Marin to call a moratorium on the implementation of the new billing model until such time as a fair and more equitable billing model for all Ontario municipalities can be introduced;

AND FURTHER THAT this resolution be circulated to all municipalities in the District of Parry Sound, all small rural municipalities in Ontario, AMO, FONOM, NOMA, ROMA, and the PC and NDP parties.
