  • Corporate Support Services

    Corporate Strategic Priorities Community Infrastructure Partnership Program (CIPP)

    Work on the Community Infrastructure Partnership Program (CIPP) between the Katzie First Nation and the City this quarter resulted in the completion of three draft documents – Water and Sewer Services Agreement, Fire Protection Services Agreement and Communications Protocol. A signing ceremony is planned for January 2016. The CIPP process has been very rewarding to both communities and will be a process that can be used in the future if further agreements are required. Sustainability

    The green team conducted research on items that are leading to contamination of the City’s three solid waste streams – recycling, green waste and garbage as well as items that are often illegally dumped.

    On November 7-15, 2015, the City supported a subsidized rate on drop off of extra green waste from the fall leaves and yard trimmings through Meadows Landscape Supply in Pitt Meadows. Residents paid only $5 for up to one truckload or small trailer of green waste. Over 50 vehicles dropped off 15.5 tonnes of green waste.

    The City continues to see an increase in the use of the Electric Vehicle Charging Station outside of City Hall. While the end of Q2 saw a one month spike in use, the monthly use in Q4 stayed consistent with the use of the station throughout 2015. This one charging station has saved the municipality almost 1,200 kg of greenhouse gas emissions into our local environment. Emergency Management

    Under the Provincial Emergency Program Act local governments are legislated to establish and maintain an emergency management program. The City directly oversees the administration of the Emergency Management Program (including: staff training, emergency pre-planning, response and recovery), and in cooperation with Maple Ridge, the administration of the Joint Emergency Program.

    Q4 Highlights:

    • October 15, 2015 at 10:15am the City participated in Shakeout BC, an annual simulated earthquake event

    • There were two emergency social services activations related to structure fires in Pitt Meadows in 2015

    December 29th Earthquake Event

    On December 29, 2015, at 11:39 pm Pitt Meadows, the Lower Mainland and the southern part of Vancouver Island, experienced the most significant earthquake to occur in recent years. The 4.7 magnitude earthquake occurred in the waters east of the Saanich Peninsula on Vancouver Island. Fortunately there was no damage reported. This event highlights the need for personal preparedness and emphasizes the importance of training for emergency events.
