COUNCILLOR INQUIRIES

3.1

Decorative Streetlight Options (T. Caterina/J. Batty)

 

 

 

Decorative Streetlight options are an important part of the neighbourhood renewal process. Recently, communities have requested alternative decorative options, however, current policies limit the decorative light options for reasons of material inventory, equity, and environmental considerations regarding spacing of poles.

We would like Administration to provide a report to the August 21, 2013, Transportation Committee meeting, outlining the implications of permitting Glenora, the View Point in Cromdale, and possibly other communities to utilize the cast iron decorative post top pole similar to the poles currently in parts of Glenora and other historical areas of the city.

Smart Bus Implementation – Options for Funding
(A. Sohi/B. Henderson/T. Caterina)

 

 

 

Between 2000 and 2012, Edmonton Transit Service annual ridership increased from 43 million to almost 83 million (a 93% increase) and service hours increased from 1.56 million to 2.1 million (a 37% increase). This growth also brings major challenges such as the number of customer concerns increasing from 8,327 to 14,435 (a 73% increase).

Technology has been identified as the most efficient and effective way to enable the existing staff to meet this challenge. It is also anticipated that smart bus technology will yield financial benefits such as fuel savings; bus operating and maintenance savings; increased ridership; reduced telephone calls to 311; and reduced customer concerns.

Please provide a report to the Transportation Committee in January 2014 with options for funding for Smart Bus implementation on all Edmonton Transit buses through operating initiatives or cost savings over a three-to-five year period.

Waste RE-Solutions - Update (S. Mandel/B. Henderson)

 

 

 

Waste RE-Solutions is a commercialization vehicle for our waste management department, which represents a strong opportunity to extend the world-leading expertise of our waste-management centre to new markets, creating significant potential earnings and reputational dividends for the City of Edmonton.

Our waste management team has been making strides to develop this business opportunity, but simply, for a business to succeed, it has to be run like a business, which means becoming unshackled by city processes that will constrain its reach, while not foregoing any obligations for ongoing accountability to Council or the citizens of Edmonton.

Can you please provide an update to Council (September) on the following:

1. Update on business opportunities which Waste RE-Solutions is pursuing.

2. Recommendations on a business-supportive governance structure that will ensure Waste RE-Solutions is nimble enough to be successful in pursuing these opportunities.

3. Update to Council on any additional requests for seed capital and updated
5-year financial projections for the company.
