Notice of Motion - Cost of Electricity

At the Regular Council meeting held February 21, 2017 the following motion was adopted by Council:


Whereas the cost of electricity in the Province of Ontario continues to escalate;

And whereas citizens of Ontario are finding it increasingly difficult to afford the costs of electricity;

And whereas businesses in Ontario are finding it increasingly difficult to stay in business and compete with neighbouring jurisdictions that benefit from more affordable electricity rates;

And whereas municipal budgets across Ontario are being significantly impacted by escalating costs of electricity;

And whereas citizens and businesses across Ontario are also impacted by increasing municipal property taxes that have resulted from escalating costs of electricity;

And whereas the citizens and businesses of Ontario have a right to openness and transparency of the breakdown of municipal costs of electricity to better understand their impact on municipal budgets;

And whereas a general service demand account such as a Waste Water Treatment Plant, or a Community Centre/Arena has a breakdown of the electricity used, global adjustment charge, delivery charge, regulatory charges, debt retirement charge, and HST;

Therefore be it resolved that Cavan Monaghan posts a link on our home page of our municipal website to our most recent electricity bill that contains a complete breakdown of all the various charges such as those with a service type general service demand and to display that bill for the month of April;

And be it resolved that this resolution be forwarded to AMO to circulate this resolution to all municipalities requesting the same;

And be it resolved that this motion be forwarded to the Premier, our MPP, and all appropriate ministries.
