Mayor Frank Scarpitti and Council authorized staff to proceed with an implementation strategy for initial West Thornhill flood control improvements in high priority areas in November 2011. Design refinements continued throughout 2012 and tendering for construction of the initial phase of this project should begin in 2013 in the Bayview Glen area. A budget of $4 million has already been approved by Markham Council for design and construction.
In 2012, Council was presented with options for additional funding for subsequent phases of this project and others City-wide. In February 2013, Council approved a flood control strategy including the use of City-wide fees and Canada Gas Tax Grants as the funding source. The March 27, 2013 Community Information meeting will provide background on the City`s Stormwater Management Program, funding needs and next steps in developing City-wide fees.
