    MYSS Promo Flyer

     

    In Canada, a staggering 14% of youth aged 15-24 are unemployed*. Research has shown that a strong network and connection to mentors can open doors for youth as they transition into the workforce. Mayor Bonnie Crombie has committed to combatting this issue in Mississauga through a variety of initiatives, including The Mayor’s Youth Speakers Series. This initiative is intended to engage, inspire and provide youth with the opportunity to hear from industry leaders on their struggles and success stories. The series will see professionals from a variety of different sectors and backgrounds speak to the youth in Mississauga in an attempt to provide them with inspiration, support and counsel in their quest for long-term and high quality employment. The series will create a meaningful dialogue aimed at helping youth chart a course for their own personal success stories. Each event will be free of charge to youth ages 14-25, living in the City of Mississauga. For more information, visit www.mayorcrombie.ca.

     

  • City Publishes 2016 Proposed Business Plan and Budget

    The City of Mississauga’s 2016 Proposed Business Plan and Budget is now available online at mississauga.ca/budget. The 2016 Proposed Business Plan and Budget details what will happen with City services in 2016 and how they will be financed.

     

     

    Highlights of the 2016 Proposed Business Plan and Budget

     

     

    • The total operating budget proposed for 2016 is $723.1 million. This amount is offset by revenue from various sources (e.g. transit fares and recreation fees) totalling $289.4 million. The amount that is not offset by these revenues is the net operating budget.
    • The net operating budget proposed for 2016 is $433.7 million, compared with $412.9 million in 2015. 2016’s proposed net operating budget is approximately $21 million more than the 2015 net operating budget.
    • Almost all the budget proposed for 2016 (about 96 per cent, or $418.4 million) is there to keep our vibrant City’s services running at current levels. This includes services like:
      • MiWay – Ontario’s third largest municipal transit services, MiWay customers boarded a bus more than 52 million times last year
      • Fire and Emergency Services – responding to emergencies and visiting more than 30,000 residences last year to promote fire safety
      • Roads – keeping motor vehicle, pedestrian and bike traffic moving on the City’s more than 5,220 lane kilometres of roadway
      • Parks and Forestry – maintaining our City’s 2,903 hectares of parkland and open space, including one million City-owned trees, two marinas and 10 publicly owned cemeteries
      • The Central Library and 17 branch libraries – lending residents 6 million items last year
      • Recreation – last year providing 166,000 hours of recreation programming like swimming, fitness, skating and more
    • Expenses related to the Stormwater Program have been removed from the City’s operating budget ($6.7 million). Starting in 2016, Stormwater Program expenses will be funded by the revenue from the Stormwater Charge. This dedicated funding will be used to keep the City’s draining system in good working order.
    • New service accounts for between one and two per cent of the proposed budget, or about $7 million. As the City advances its strategic plan, new service includes:
      • continuing the low-income transit pass pilot
      • adding 28,000 transit service hours
      • opening three new Mississauga Transitway stations. When completed in 2017, the Transitway will move riders from the west end (Winston Churchill station) to the east (Renforth Gateway station) or vice versa in 20 minutes
      • increasing the City’s fire prevention efforts by adding capacity for public education and plans examination
      • improving the City’s disaster resilience
      • improving the Library’s collection and completing the Woodlands and Meadowvale libraries redevelopments
      • promoting our City as a tourism destination
      • reopening the extensively renovated Meadowvale Community Centre
      • beginning Phase I design and construction of a community centre for Park 459 in Ward 10
    • The overall tax impact on residents is 2.6 per cent on the 2016 residential property tax bill. Of this, 1.7 per cent is for the City’s services, and 0.9 per cent for Region of Peel services.
    • For the owners of an average, detached, single family home in Mississauga (value $533,000), a 2.6 per cent overall tax increase comes to about $121. Of this, approximately $78 goes to the City.

  • Working Group to Consider a Stormwater Residential Credit Program

    On November 18th, Mississauga City Council approved a working group to consider a stormwater credit program for residential properties that use stormwater best management practices.  The working group will be comprised of Ward 2 Councillor Karen Ras, Ward 3 Councillor Chris Fonseca, Ward 6 Councillor Ron Starr, Ward 8 Councillor Matt Mahoney and Ward 11 Councillor George Carlson as well as staff from the City’s Transportation and Works department.

     

    The City of Mississauga currently has a credit program for non-residential and multi-residential properties. On October 28, 2015, Council passed a resolution to form a group to consider a separate credit program for residential properties. The group is to report back to Council in the spring of 2016.

     

    Background:

     

    Stormwater Charge
    The stormwater charge is a new, dedicated source of funding that will be added to the Region of Peel water bill in 2016. The City of Mississauga’s stormwater drainage system protects water quality and lowers the risk of flooding that can damage your property and the environment. To keep the system in good working order, the City invests in planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance, renewal and bylaw enforcement activities.
