Request for Decision Summary

This presentation is being brought to Committee to provide background information on the Stormwater Rate Bylaw scheduled to be brought forward at the next Council meeting.  The presentation is based on the report produced by CORVUS Business Advisors dated June 2019 and the follow-up addendum dated January 2020.  

The presentation is aimed at providing an understanding to the Stormwater Rate bylaw.

Proposed Motion
That the report and addendum be received as information.

In early 2019 the City of Spruce Grove engaged CORVUS Business Advisors to provide the City with a report to address the budgetary requirements of our stormwater network. The aim was to review and provide a recommendation to the City that would ensure the current and future needs of the stormwater network for both maintenance and capital were addressed. CORVUS provided the initial report to the City in June 2019.  Administration spent the next 6 months reviewing the report and ensuring that the recommendations were achievable within the City’s current processes. 

In December Administration advised CORVUS that a reduction in the rates (original report) was necessary and asked for an addendum to be produced that would reflect a new set of rates.  The result is the addendum to the initial report dated January 2020.

CORVUS Business Advisors were engaged to provide a report on a recommended solution to stormwater costs and funding. The departments that were involved during this process included:  Finance, Public Works, Communications, Engineering, and the City Clerks Office.
