Department: Planning & Infrastructure  
Strategic Vision Element: Where People Choose to Live - A dynamic city with an exceptional quality of life Related Goal: Citizens consistently express high levels of satisfaction with municipal services.

Information
Request for Decision Summary
 Administration is seeking Council approval for a revised Cemetery Operation and Maintenance Policy.  This policy is being revised in support of the recently proposed changes to the Cemetery Bylaw and is intended to set operational guidelines and outline roles and responsibilities for the operation of Pioneer Cemetery.  This policy will help ensure the cemetery is operated in compliance with provincial regulations while providing a quality service for our citizens.

Proposed Motion
 That Policy CP-1012-18 - Cemetery Operation and Maintenance be approved as presented.
Background/Analysis
The existing operations and maintenance policy has only been in place for one year but the ongoing development of Pioneer Cemetery necessitates revisions to the Cemetery Bylaw and the Policy.  Specifically, the addition of a columbarium within the cemetery along with the discontinuation of the Cemetery caretaker operational model required that we make a number of important changes to our regulations at this time.
Options/Alternatives
None. 
Consultation/Engagement
Public Works administrative staff drafted the proposed policy with the assistance of the City Clerk's office. 
Implementation/Communication
 If approved, copies of this policy will be available on the City's website.
Impacts
This new policy will help ensure the ongoing effective operation of Pioneer Cemetery by providing clear operational rules and requirements for staff, vendors and interment rights holders. 

Fiscal Impact
Financial Implications:
 This new policy will have no financial impact on the current operating budget for the cemetery.
