At the Committee of the Whole meeting on May 26, 2008, Council requested staff to provide clarification on the changes to the DCC program and rates recommended subsequent to the public consultation process. Staff recommends that the DCC funding for 14 of the 63 projects included in the DCC capital program be changed. The changes reflect generally accepted 'best practices' where the DCC funds are used to fund infrastructure needs required to accommodate community growth. The proposed changes would result in a net reduction in proposed DCC rates, as compared to the rates proposed in January 2008, of $1,682.26 for a single family residential unit. Increased funding amounts of $856,910 will be required from the General Revenue and the Utility funds over the 20 year program due to the decrease in rates.
