This week, Town Council begins at 6:30pm with a meeting to discuss the Wellwood Drain.  The agenda can be found here.

Administration presents and recommends receipt of a report concerning the completion of a Drainage Study for the cleaning of the Wellwood Drain, prepared by R.C. Spencer and Associates.  The next step would be the hosting of a Court of Revision Meeting on August 13, 2019, wherein property owners will have opportunity to dispute assessed charges.

Beginning at 7pm, regular business begins.  The agenda can be found here

The delegations include:
Marianne Love of M.L. Consulting regarding the Council Compensation Review and the Committee's report.
Conclusions of the review are:
  • The 2018 base pay remuneration for Elected Officials at Tecumseh is the same or higher relative to the comparator group identified.
  • Base pay for the Deputy Mayor and Councillor positions is higher than the 65th percentile of the comparator group (22% and 13% respectively).
  • The 65th percentile target (P65) is a reasonable pay target for base pay having regard to local area practice and the comparator group.
  • Other elements of compensation are generally competitive, including health and life benefit coverage, technology, travel and professional development.
Recommendations are:
  • That base pay for the Elected Official positions be adjusted to offset the removal of the 1/3 tax free treatment, effective January 1, 2019, and
    that the adjustment be removed in the event that the CRA provision is repealed.
  • That Council continue the practice of adjusting base pay for the Elected Official positions annually by using the % adjustment provided for the
    Management/Non-union Salary Grid; however, Council may wish to consider a varied economic adjustment for the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and/or Councillor position in 2019 and future years to normalize the base pay for the three positions and become more aligned with comparator practice and the 65th percentile (i.e.,100% of the economic adjustment for the Mayor, 50% for Councillor and 25% for Deputy Mayor) 
  • That an external review be conducted once every four years using a Community Advisory Committee, a Consultant and comparator data; the next
    review being during the next term of Council (2022-2026)
  • That Council consider revising the comparator group when the comparators for the Management/Non-union compensation change.
  • That Council consider providing more itemization of the remuneration and benefits in the Annual Statement of Council Remuneration.
In addition, Director of Parks and Recreation, Paul Anthony, and Manager Recreation Programs and Events, Kerri Rice, will present regarding the Tecumseh Corn Festival.  The presentation can be found here.  This year's entertainment will include Fred Penner, Pretzel Logic and Christee Palace.  There will also be a new festival layout with vendors placed adjacent to the main path.
