The Council of South Stormont received a presentation on the Mobile Crisis Response Team, will gather public feedback on the DRAFT Procedural By-Law, and approved the grant application from the South Stormont Fun Raisers.

Delegations – Ontario Provincial Police Commander Mark Hamrick and Constable Jim Blanchette

  • OPP has created the Mobile Crisis Response Team to enhance the care and responsiveness when OPP responds to calls where mental health issues are present. The program has allowed a health care practitioner to accompany an OPP officer on calls where the mental health care practitioner can assess the situation on-site and make referrals quickly.
  • The program has resulted in shorter hospital wait times, increased rapport with the police and the public, and decreased repeat calls.
  • The program is primarily funded through the SDG Counties; however, the OPP requests that the Ministry of Health and grants become the primary funding sources.

Council approved the following consent items:

  • Raisin-South Nation Source Protection Committee: Annual Update Link
  • Great Lakes St. Lawrence River Adaptive Management Committee
  • Monthly Activity Summary–CAO
  • Monthly Activity Summary-Director of Corporate Services/Clerk
  • Monthly Activity Summary-Fire Chief

  • Monthly Activity Summary-Director of Planning/Building
  • Monthly Activity Summary-Director of Parks and Recreation

Notice – Procedural By-Law

  • Administration presented the Draft Procedural By-Law. This will be published on the website for the next two weeks for public feedback. It will be brought back to Council for adoption at the end of September.

Moulinette Island – Signage re: No Dumping and Access Bridges

  • Administration has received complaints regarding the dumping of yard waste on Moulinette Island by residents. New signage has been installed to deter further dumping issues.
  • There have also been complaints of residents erecting temporary bridges. These are being removed, and signage will be put up to deter residents from creating new bridges.
  • In both cases, more action will be taken (by way of a formal letter) should these actions continue.
