Stormwater Charge Residential Program Workshop
April 13, Session 1, 2:30 - 4:30 and Session 2, 6:30 - 8:30
You may already be aware that properties in Mississauga will be assessed for a new stormwater charge which have begun appearing on the Region of Peel water bill. Please visit our website, www.stormwatercharge.ca, for details.
A Residential Program?
In October, Ward 2 Councillor Ras passed a motion approved by Council to establish a working committee of Councillors and appropriate staff to consider a credit program for residential properties with stormwater volume reduction measures. That motion is available online as part of the published meeting minutes of City Council on October 28, 2015 (page 14).
The working committee has met twice in 2016 to discuss and scope potential residential program alternatives. New research conducted by staff about residential programs of other jurisdictions in Ontario with stormwater rates has been presented to the working committee, as well as related insights from City of Kitchener staff and an environmental marketing consultant. Together this information, along with the concerns raised by Mississauga residents, has led the working committee to a series of considerations for a residential program.
The working committee felt that it was important to provide the public an opportunity to offer feedback on potential program options. The focus of the event will be a set of potential program options which participants will discuss and provide their input on in a collaborative group setting.
