RZone and Volunteer Policies
RZone Policy – Respect and Responsibility
Staff have developed the RZone Policy to support the safety and well-being of staff and the public with the goal of promoting a positive and safe environment in Township-owned facilities. The policy sets clear guidelines for staff, volunteers, user groups, and the public on how to handle inappropriate behavior or violence in these facilities. This policy will also include written and verbal communications with the Township. It emphasizes the importance of respectful relationships and outlines consequences for policy violations. Overall, it's meant to ensure everyone feels supported and safe in Township properties.
The Volunteer Policy specifies the different roles and responsibilities of both the Township and volunteers in municipal activities, covering a range of social, recreational, cultural, and emergency-related tasks. The policy outlines roles, responsibilities, and addresses liability and insurance for informed volunteer participation.
Committee of the Whole supported enacting the policies and authorized by-laws to come forward for their adoption.
Enhanced By-Law Services
Staff presented a concluding report on the By-law Enforcement Services Pilot Summer Program. The report discusses the outcomes of the summer enforcement pilot program. Council recommended that Staff incorporate enhanced by-law services into the budget discussions for the upcoming year.
