management program which includes: roadway drainage systems, stormwater management ponds and
waterways such as rivers, creeks and ditches.
Public Engagement Opportunities
June 27 marks the first opportunity for the public to participate in the public engagement
process. It will be followed by a second public meeting in early fall.
Another integral part of the public engagement process is the formation of a Stormwater
Financing Stakeholder Group representing stakeholders including ratepayer groups, business and
development communities, tax-exempt properties and others such as conservation authorities.
They are participating in a series of meetings and will have input into the final
recommendations made to council in the fall of 2012.
