Request for Decision Summary
Council wishes to have representation on the Metro Edmonton Regional Transit Services Commission (RTSC) Transition Team.

Proposed Motion
That Councillor McKenzie and Councillor Rothe be appointed to the Metro Edmonton Regional Transit Services Committee Transition Team.

Background/Analysis
At the July 16, 2018 Council Meeting, approval was given that the City of Spruce Grove should enter into a Memorandum of Agreement to participate in Phase 2 of the Metro Edmonton Regional Transit Services Commission to develop the commission and a transition plan. With this participation there is no funding required nor commitment to be part of the final commission. Council will have the opportunity to review the details of the commission and the transition plan at a later date. 

Currently of the 13 Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board members, 11 Councils have agreed to participate in and appoint two council representatives to the Transition Team. There is a plan to have a ceremonial signing of the Memorandum of Understanding by all those that have joined through their Councils at the first meeting in September. (Date to be confirmed)
