  • Share

The Apr. 18, 2017, Priorities and Finance Committee meeting included:

Boards, Commissions and Committees – Maximum Term Limit Amendments

The Priorities and Finance Committee recommends that Council adopt the proposed amendments to the Terms of Reference of affected Boards, Commissions and Committees (Attachments 2 through 6 and revised Attachment 5); and give three readings to the proposed Bylaw to amend the Audit Committee Bylaw and the Combative Sports Commission Bylaw (Attachment 7).

Proposed Council Policy on Fundraising to Benefit a Third Party

The Priorities and Finance Committee received information on the proposed Council policy on Fundraising to Benefit a Third Party, which is intended to promote accountability and transparency, and provide Members of Council with consistent guidance and procedures related to fundraising. The reference to “Third Parties” includes fundraising to promote and benefit communities, non-profit organizations and charities. The Committee moved that the report be referred to Administration for further consultation with Members of Council to return to the May 2, 2017, Regular Meeting of the Priorities and Finance Committee.

Calgary Subdivision and Development Appeal Board Bylaw Amendments

The Priorities and Finance Committee received information on proposed amendments to Bylaw 25P95, intended to provide flexibility for operations of the Calgary Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB). The proposed amendments eliminate the distinction between supernumerary and regular public members of the Board, expand the minimum size of the Board, and transition the appointments of current supernumerary members to those of regular public members. The Committee moved that the recommendations contained in the report be approved.

Main Streets Program Implementation Plan

The Priorities and Finance Committee received information on the Main Streets Program Implementation Plan and approved the capital budget per Attachment 2 to be funded by corporate capacity as identified by Infrastructure Calgary. The implementation plan is intended to integrate a new land use framework with recommendations to improve the public realm along the street and sidewalks within individual priority main streets areas. The Committee also recommends that Council direct the Attachments to reports C2017-0333, PFC2017-0355 and CPS2017-0311 remain confidential as previously directed by Council, unless it is determined by the Directors of Supply and the responsible business unit to be appropriate to release budget information in advance of the contract(s) being awarded.
