At its meeting to be held on March 22, 2018, Niagara Regional Council will be considering a budget amendment to utilize $1,159,574 from the Ambulance Communications Reserve as in-year budget adjustments.
The Public Health and Emergency Services department is exploring significant changes to develop a future model of system delivery to meet the escalating demands on the Emergency Management Services system with a more sustainable resource profile. Staff have commenced this work and have made it the primary priority within the 2018 organizational strategy to prepare, implement and study the proposed changes.
The Ambulance Communication Reserve is proposed as the primary funding source for this work, as expediting of some of the recommended system modifications will require temporary resources in order to maintain uninterrupted service.
Approval of this amendment will not affect Niagara Region’s 2018 tax levy or the 2018 tax rates. As such, residents will not see a change on the Regional portion of their property tax bill.
Date: March 22, 2018
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Niagara Regional Council Chamber, 1815 Sir Isaac Brock Way, Thorold
