Motion Yes No Absent/Recused
Motion To: WHEREAS the Water Services branch of the Public Works and Environmental Services Department responds to requests for services from residents relating to rodents in sewers and provides baiting services as requested; and WHEREAS the current population assessment in Ottawa is based on response rates by the various service areas; and WHEREAS the City of Ottawa does not currently have a mechanism in place for rodent population tracking; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT staff be directed to report back to the appropriate Standing Committee on the establishment of a proactive monitoring and baiting program as part of a longer-term comprehensive strategy for determining baseline rodent population, and potential funding sources for such a program, in advance of development of the 2018 draft budget.

Motion To: The prevalence of asbestos in the construction of homes prior to the 1970s is a well-known concern in mature neighbourhoods. The risk of exposure to airborne asbestos exists when a home or building is being renovated or demolished, including disturbing or removing insulation, roofing shingles, floor tiles, roof tiles, felt or siding that contains asbestos. The known risks associated with breathing in asbestos fibers are cancers and other diseases, such as: asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer. Under the Building Code Act, the City does not have the authority to ensure compliance with the Ministry of Labour’s Ontario Health and Safety Act (OHSA), in particular the prevention of the release of harmful substances in the air as a result of demolition. Although the Building Code Act requires a permit for the demolition of a building, buildings less than three storeys may be d

Motion To: Construction projects can often generate considerable noise that may disturb residents, particularly on weekends when they expect there to be less noise for a restful time. While the City has measures in place to help ensure accountability on its projects, can staff please advise what measures are currently in place to mitigate private construction noise, and review what opportunities could be developed to further reduce noise disruption by private developers in the vicinity of residential properties.
