A report dated October 21, 2011 was before Council.

MOVED by Councillor Johns, seconded by Councillor Hendsbee that Halifax

Regional Council:

–  –  –

2. Initiate the process to consider an amendment to the Regional Subdivision By-Law and the Beaver Bank, Hammonds Plains and Upper Sackville MPS, to extend the Water Service Area Boundary along Highway #1 Springfield Avenue (Springfield Estates Mobile Home Park) as well as those areas around Springfield Lake currently serviced by the Springfield Lake Sewage Treatment Plant;

3. Initiate the process to consider the approval of a Local Improvement Charge (LIC) By-Law for the extension of central water services along Highway #1 to and including the Springfield Estates Mobile Home Park;

4. Request staff to submit a request for financial contribution from the Province, through the Provincial Capital Assistance Program (PCAP), toward the provision of central water services to the Springfield Estates Mobile Home Park; and

5. Request that Halifax Water continue to address short term solutions to the servicing issues in the Springfield Lake subdivision and the Springfield Estates Mobile Home Park, with the intent that this area will be considered for connection to the Bedford-Sackville trunk servicing system.

A discussion on the motion ensued with staff responding to questions.

Regarding the implications of the proposed additions to the motion, Mr. Roger Wells, Supervisor of Regional and Community Planning, advised that generally staff was in support of the proposed wording changes brought forward by Councillor Johns. He indicated that HRM and Halifax Water staff as well as the Springfield Estates property owners would determine the extent of the area to be serviced by central water and sewer; noting this was within the realm of the direction in the recommendation.

Mr. Jamie Hannam, Director of Engineering and Information Services with Halifax Water, advised that there were major downstream improvements to be made in the area; however, the recommendation, as amended, did still address this issue.

Mr. Wells stated that Sackville Estates had been in existence for some time and the community gets their water from Little Springfield Lake via an older water treatment facility. He indicated that there have been weather and construction related issues with water becoming contaminated and the community was currently under a boil water order which was why staff was suggesting the extension of the water treatment pipe.

MOTION PUT AND PASSED.

MOVED by Councillor McCluskey, seconded by Councillor Smith that Halifax

Further, that no new subsidies or significant changes to existing subsidies be approved with a term of more than one year.

2. The proposed two phased approach, focusing on accountability and reporting work in Phase 1 as the necessary preparation for the alignment work in Phase 2.

This paper studies the class of rational-valued metrics µ on finite sets T such that the set Π(µ) of primitive extensions of µ is finite. Here a positive extension m of µ to a set V ⊇ T is said to be primitive if m dominates no convex combination of other extensions of µ. We show that Π(µ) is finite if and only if there exists a graph H such that its path metric dH has no primitive extensions...»
