Consideration of Joint Resolution regarding Provincial Funding

Moved by Councillor Peeters, seconded by Councillor Pappas

WHEREAS, within the Consolidated Municipal Service Management (CMSM) Agreement between the County of Peterborough and the City of Peterborough, the County of Peterborough has administrative responsibility for the delivery of Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Land Ambulance Services and the County and City share in paying for service delivery with the Province of Ontario;

AND WHEREAS the Province of Ontario has capped their financial contributions to EMS service delivery to fifty (50%) percent based on 2006 expenditure levels;

AND WHEREAS, due to mandated/legislated service delivery requirements combined with increasing emergency call volumes, both the capital and operating requirements associated with EMS service delivery have resulted in extraordinary financial expenditures since 2006;

AND WHEREAS the capping of provincial contributions at 2006 expenditure levels will translate into a shortfall of provincial funding in excess of one million ($1,000,000) dollars for the 2009 budget year, (41% of necessary expenditures as opposed to 50%) which neither the County of Peterborough nor the City of Peterborough can absorb;

NOW THEREFORE the Councils of the City of Peterborough and the County of Peterborough jointly resolve:

1. That the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care for the Province of Ontario be requested to pay a full fifty (50%) per cent cost share for EMS Land Ambulance Service delivery in order to address the current and on-going capital and operating requirements; and further

2. That the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, the Minister of Finance and the Premier of Ontario be advised that due to municipal economic circumstances, a full fifty (50%) per cent Provincial cost share is necessary to avoid jeopardizing provincial established service delivery requirements/standards; and further

3. That a copy of this resolution be forwarded to MPP Jeff Leal – Peterborough and MPP Laurie Scott – Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock.

Moved by Councillor Clarke, seconded by Councillor Martin

That Item #3 be amended to include “the resolution be sent to the Premier, AMO and all communities that operate ambulance services”.
