At today's Council meeting, Council passed a resolution to extend the membership of the Governance Advisory Committee to include citizens. The City is looking for two citizens to be members of the Governance Advisory Committee which is already comprised of five (5) Councillors and the Mayor (ex-officio member) and help implement a four-year workplan.
According to the committee's Terms of Reference its mandate is to examine issues related to, but not limited to: committee structures and procedures; policies and procedures governing Council members; policies and procedures governing elections; and policies and procedures regarding transparency and accountability to the public and the role and recruitment of the Integrity Commissioner.
The committee is looking for citizens who are not already serving on other City advisory committees and with:
experience participating on Boards or Committees
demonstrated experience in governance
experience in municipal or ethical issues
not a Council appointed representative on a local board or committee of Council

March 10, 2015 – Following record breaking cold in January and February, conservation authorities remind residents of the dangers near streams, rivers, ponds and lakes as spring gets closer.
Slippery, unstable stream banks and frigid water temperatures lead to hazardous conditions close to any body of water. This year it will be especially important to keep family and pets away from the edge of all waterways. Please stay safe near water and help make this an enjoyable spring.
Environment Canada monitoring shows this past February set a number of cold weather records, including coldest daily temperature and no days above zero in individual cities. The bone-chilling cold has led to widespread ice cover in Greater Toronto Area rivers and streams as well as the Great Lakes.
Warming temperatures and spring rainfall are likely to speed up melting ice and snow. This will lead to higher, faster flowing water and potentially quicker ice break-up in watercourses. There could be increased risk of localized flooding in low-lying areas and in areas where ice jams might occur.
Credit Valley Conservation and conservation authorities in the GTA will continue to closely monitor changing conditions. They will issue flood outlook and flood warning messages as necessary. For more information, contact your local conservation authority:
