Question Period and Announcements

..  

Snow Banks

 

With respect to the snow bank issue, Councillor Cimino asked if the City has the authority to adopt a policy that categorizes roadways for snow bank removal (i.e. amount of traffic although the roadway is not too narrow) and the cost of implementing such policy.

 

The General Manager of Infrastructure Services indicated the financial implication would be significant and suggested the matter be brought back to Committee by way of report.

 

Snow Plowing

 

With respect to snow plowing, Councillor Berthiaume asked why the streets are not cleaned after a melt to avoid rutting when it freezes again.

 

The General Manager of Infrastructure Services stated the challenge has been that there have not been long periods of time between events.  The crews are currently doing multiple activities dealing with obstructed site lines, packed roads, pot holes, blocked catch basins and ditches.

 

Snow Removal

 

Councillor Dutrisac asked if snow removal practices can be reviewed as the matter is now becoming a safety issue and if they can review the snow plowing routes so as to not always begin and/or end on the same street.

 

Snow Removal – McCrae Heights Area

 

Councillor Dupuis asked if snow banks could be pushed pack in the McCrae Heights area, as in the past, as people exiting from the driveways cannot see to get onto the roadway.

 

The General Manager of Infrastructure Services indicated that the policy is to make arterial roads as wide as possible.  He stated this matter will be reviewed.

 

Snow Removal and Bus Service

 

Councillor Rivest asked if the following items could be reviewed:

·         make the plowing of school streets one of the top priorities;

·         revisit the snow banks policy;

·         review bus service on Dominion Drive;

·         have buses not in service pick up people and drop them off along the way.

 

Snow Removal - Indian Road and Paris Street

 

Councillor Caldarelli asked if the intersection of Indian Road and Paris Street could be reviewed as it is a problem location - the snow is so high people exiting Indian Road cannot see to the south, the bus shelter obstructs the site line to the south and northbound cars on Paris Street travel at excessive speeds.

 

Review of Taxi By-law

 

Due to the recent changes in taxi and shuttle service at the airport, Councillor Kett asked if the current taxi by-law is still the best way to provide service in the City. 

 

The General Manager of Growth & Development indicated that the Operations Committee directed staff to conduct a review of the taxi by-law as a result of the airport contract award.  The review will be conducted after the contract has been awarded in order to see the impact.

 

Notices of Motion

..  

Sudbury Downs Racetrack - Request for Extension
