DATE Vna4cit C .1e/3
Date: February 27, 2013
Subject: 2013 Municipal Election
1.0 PURPOSE — the next municipal election is scheduled for Monday, October 21, 2013. This report is to advise Council of some of the recent amendments to the Local Authorities Election Act (LAEA) along with some of the requirements under the Act and to receive Council approval/direction on some preliminary matters.
2.0 BACKGROUND — in past elections, Red Deer County has worked in cooperation with Chinook's Edge School Division in the holding of elections. This not only provides for a sharing of costs but also a sharing of resources, knowledge and workers. Most importantly, this provides residents with a convenient voting process by allowing, in most cases, voting for both the County Council and the School Board at one polling station. Administration plans to continue to work with Chinook's Edge to provide convenient voting for Red Deer County residents. In addition, administration also plans to work with the urban municipalities located within County boundaries and the City of Red Deer, on behalf of Red Deer Catholic Regional School Division, for the provision of convenient voting for all residents.
Upon receipt of a Ministerial Order from the Minister of Municipal Affairs in 1998, a bylaw was adopted to allow for the modified voting procedure, which allows Red Deer County to have more than one polling station per division. This bylaw remains in effect.
In 1998, a bylaw was passed and remains in effect that requires each candidate filing a nomination for election to provide a $100 deposit to accompany said nomination papers. The legislation now allows Council to adopt a deposit of up to $1000 to be provided. A change in the deposit requirements would be achieved by adoption of a new bylaw.
Legislative Services Manager Nancy Lougheed has been appointed as the Returning Officer for Red Deer County for the last five elections.
3.0 DISCUSSION — Term of Office — commencing with the 2013 election, the term of office is set at four years (previously three years).
Elector Eligibility — commencing with the 2013 election, as Red Deer County does not produce a list of electors, in order to be permitted to vote in the municipal election, all electors must continue to sign a statement (Voting Register) stating they are eligible to vote in the election, and, new in 2013, electors must produce proof of their identity and current residence.
The LAEA provides that an elected authority may pass a bylaw no later than 6 months prior to nomination day that lists the identification the elector is to produce in order to be eligible to vote. If a bylaw is not passed, the identification requirements are set as the same requirements for providing identification to vote in a provincial election. These requirements are a government issued identification containing the elector's photograph, current address and name. This includes a Driver's Licence or an Alberta Identification Card. If the elector is not able to
2013 Municipal Election – consideration of some
Page 8 of 44
produce a government issued identification, then the elector is required to produce one piece of identification authorized by the Chief Electoral Officer under the Election Act that establishes the elector's name and current address (see attached listing of examples of acceptable identification).
Administration recommends that Red Deer County electors be allowed to produce identification as required in Section 53(1)(b) of the L4EA that essentially mirrors the identification requirements for voting in a provincial election.
Advance Vote Qualifications — prior to the 2007 municipal election, there were certain instances that applied to enable an elector to vote at the Advance Vote. Those qualifications were deleted when amendments to the Local Authorities Election Act were adopted in 2007. Commencing with the 2007 election, there are no restrictions on which electors may vote at the Advance Vote.
In 2010 and 2007, two advance votes were held (one 9 days prior to Election Day and the other 11 days prior). In 2010, 146 votes were cast, and, in 2007, a total of 107 votes were cast.
Authorization for holding an advance vote is accomplished by way of a Council resolution. Administration recommends that Red Deer County hold an advance vote in the 2013 election.
Vote by Special Ballot — Sections 77.1 to 77.3 enable electors to apply to vote by "special ballot," frequently referred to as "mail-in" ballots. It is the option of the municipality if it wishes to offer vote by special ballot, and a resolution of Council is required to provide for voting by special ballot.
Electors eligible to vote by special ballot are those electors who are unable to vote at an advance vote or at the voting station on Election Day because of (a) physical incapacity, (b) absence from the local jurisdiction, or (c) being a returning officer, deputy returning officer, constable, candidate, official agent or
scrutineer who may be located on election day at a voting station other than that for the elector's place of residence.
The new identification requirements also apply to those wishing to vote by Special Ballot. These electors are required to attach a copy of their identification that meets the requirements when submitting their Special Ballot.
A resolution authorizing vote by special ballot must also include the method(s) in which application for special ballot may be made (in writing, by telephone, by fax, in person, by e-mail). The Act provides that application for Special Ballot may be made between the day after the day the resolution is passed to provide for special ballots and that applications and ballots be received up until the closing of voting stations on Election Day.
Red Deer County provided its electors with the opportunity to vote by Special Ballot during the 2007 and 2010 elections, with a total of 28 electors choosing this method of voting in 2007 and 24 in 2010.
Administration recommends that Red Deer County provide vote by Special Ballot in the 2013 election. The special ballots would be delivered to the applicants shortly after the 24-hour waiting period following close of Nominations, and the deadline for receipt of special ballots would be the closing (8 p.m.) of voting stations on Election Day.
Municipal Election Finance and Contribution Disclosure — amendments adopted in 2010 and coming into force on December 10, 2012, are Section 147.4(1.1) that requires municipal candidates to donate all surplus municipal campaign funds, including amounts of $500 or less,
2013 Municipal Election – consideration of some
Page 9 of 44
to a charity or the municipality if they do not run in the next general election, which would be the October 2013 election. In addition, if the candidates are not planning to run in the 2013 election, they are also required to clear any campaign deficits.
Section 147.21(1) requires that a candidate register with the municipality before he/she accept any campaign contributions prior to nomination day. This change applies to campaign periods beginning on or after January 1, 2014, so does not apply to the 2013 general election.
Section 147.3(1) has been updated to allow a candidate to open a campaign account at a financial institution in his/her own name.
4.0 FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS — as part of the 2013 budget process, funds have been allocated for election expenses.
5.0 RECOMMENDATIONS
5.1 That Nancy Lougheed be appointed as Red Deer County's Returning Officer for the 2013 Municipal Election pursuant to Section 13(1) of the Local Authorities Election Act.
5.2 That Red Deer County, pursuant to Section 73 of the Local Authorities Election Act, hold an advance vote for the 2013 Municipal Election.

Subject: Support for Proposed AAMDC Resolution
1.0 PURPOSE — County of St. Paul has approached Red Deer County to endorse its emergent resolution regarding the Water for Life Program at the 2013 AAMDC Spring Convention.
2.0 BACKGROUND I DISCUSSION — the Water for Life Program funds projects to the approved amount however, many municipalities are finding that inflation, development of new technologies and other issues are resulting in increased final costs over the approved amount. Historically, the province has provided funding for the final cost of the project rather than the approved amount.
In Red Deer County, Water for Life funding supports the construction of the South Red Deer Regional Wastewater Commission's (SRDRWC) sewer line from the Town of Olds to the City of Red Deer. The province initially approved funding for the SRDRWC sewer line based on an engineering scope document that was created in 2007. The original funding agreement was based on estimated eligible costs but with the final actual eligible costs to be considered. The Minister recently approved additional funding however, this is to be the last funding increase the project sees even though it is incomplete and final eligible costs are still outstanding. Recent estimates suggests the SRDRWC sewer line will have an approximate funding short fall of $12 million. All member municipalities within the SRDRWC will be immensely affected by this funding shortfall.
Each resolution requires a mover and a seconder. The County of St.Paul will be the mover of this emergent resolution and would like Red Deer County to be the seconder. As a seconder a member of Council will need to publically second the resolution during the resolution session and they will be offered an opportunity to give background information and comments to support the resolution.
A copy of the proposed resolution is attached.
3.0 ALTERNATIVES 3.1 Council approve endorsing the resolution as presented. 3.2 Council not approve endorsing the resolution.
4.0 RECOMMENDATIONS — Red Deer County endorse the County of St. Paul's emergent resolution regarding the Water for Life Program at the AAMDC Spring Convention.

Resolution ?-13S
Funding of Approved Water for Life Projects Based on Actual Total Costs
County of St. Paul
WHEREAS municipalities are facing increasing funding challenges to address the infrastructure costs to develop new water and wastewater systems and maintain existing systems; and
WHEREAS municipalities throughout the province have received approval and funding for Water for Life projects for the development of new regional water and wastewater systems which are more cost-effective and/or environmentally desirable than independent systems; and
WHEREAS municipalities have commenced engineering and construction of these new projects in consultation with Alberta Transportation Water for Life consultants; and
WHEREAS these projects have exceeded original cost and engineering estimates due to current pricing, new technologies, etc., after the initial funding approval letter was received ; and
WHEREAS the Government of Alberta has historically provided funding of the project based on actual total costs rather than the approved amount; and
WHEREAS the Government of Alberta is hosting Water Conversations throughout the province and have indicated in their Water for Life Action Plan, item 1.5, need to "design and implement regional drinking water and wastewater solutions";
WHEREAS in preparation for the Water Conversation, the Government of Alberta prepared a document titled Our Water, Our Future validates the difficulty communities to finance drinking water and wastewater systems through utility charges alone making it necessary to find ways to minimize or share these costs.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties advocate on the behalf of municipalities for the Government of Alberta to continue to fund "projects" through the Water for Life program at the approved percentage of the estimate rather than to the amount indicated in the approval letter to reflect actual cost; and
FURTHER BE IT RESOLVED that the Government of Alberta ensures that current approved projects are funded based on actual total costs prior to the approval of new projects under the Water for Life Program.
Member Background
The County of St. Paul has two current projects occurring that have received Water for Life approval and funding. Both of these projects were based on a Regional Water
Proposed AAMDC Resolution – request
Page 12 of 44
Study that was conducted in 2008/09. The funding requested for these projects was based on the information and engineering estimates outlined in the Regional Water Study. In both of these projects current engineering estimates indicate that the projects will exceed the approval dollars granted in the approval letter received by the County /Elk Point/St. Paul Regional Water Commission.
The County in the first project has tendered out and constructed the water transmission line during the 2012 fiscal year. Currently the County is ready to tender out the new Water Treatment Plant to serve two (and in the future three) communities. Engineering estimates for this project show that the funding shortfall on this project will be an estimated $1,500,000.
In the second project where the County is part of the Elk Point/St. Paul Regional Water Commission who requested the funding, the project is estimated to fall short approximately $4,500,000 in order to complete all the components of the project.
Many of the projects applied for and approved in the province under this program are a direct result of municipalities being unable to comply with the Code of Practice prescribed by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development for their water or wastewater facilities. Therefore in an effort to come back into or remain in compliance, municipalities have joined together to work regionally to provide safe drinking water to their residents and efficient, sustainable wastewater solutions for their regions. Municipalities are forced to meet the regulations set by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development, but the funding for them to do these projects comes from Alberta Transportation.
The municipalities/regional groups undertaking the project as well as Alberta Transportation and Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development work collectively to find the appropriate solution for the approved project. Inevitably some of these projects end up exceeding the cost projections indicated in the Water for Life application. In the past, Alberta Transportation has funded the project based on the percentage they approved in their approval letter, even if it exceeded the original approved amount. More recently municipalities have been told that they need to live within the approved "amount" and are responsible for the cost overruns to complete the project.
Having Alberta Transportation continue with the past practice of funding the project will allow municipalities and Regional Commissions to complete their projects ensuring that their residents will have safe, reliable, affordable utilities.
AAMDC Background
PILE
Subject: Delburne's 1001h Centennial Celebrations — Request for Funding
1.0 PURPOSE — to advise of a request received from Delburne's 100 Year Centennial Committee for Red Deer County to consider a financial contribution toward the celebrations planned for this event being held June 29 to July 1, 2013 (copy of request attached).
2.0 BACKGROUND / DISCUSSION — as with many central Alberta communities, Delburne is celebrating its centennial this summer and is planning a host of activities for the weekend of Saturday, June 29, to Monday, July 1. As County residents in the area contribute to and participate in many community events in the Village of Delburne, they are considered to be a big part of the community and its history. As a result, Red Deer County's Mayor Wood and Councillor Massier have been invited and have participated in some of the events leading up to the celebration.
In addition to urban municipalities, some of Red Deer County's hamlets have been and will be celebrating their centennials over the next few years. As a result of requests received from the Hamlet committees organizing the centennial celebrations, Red Deer County agreed to contribute $1,000 to each Hamlet when requests were received for financial assistance related to any centennial celebrations.
A review of the budget submitted by the Committee shows total expenses of $117,645 and total revenue of $108,040 (which currently includes a $5,000 contribution from the County). Included with the request is listing of the activities planned for the weekend event.
3.0 ALTERNATIVES 3.1 Approve the request from the Delburne's 100 Year Centennial Committee for a financial
contribution of $5,000. 3.2 Approve a financial contribution of another value. 3.3 Deny the request for funding.
4.0 FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS — any agreed upon financial contribution would be covered by funds available in Council's operating budget.
5.0 RECOMMENDATIONS - that Council determine the level of financial support it deems appropriate for this funding request.

Dear Sandy:

Red Deer County
Re: Funding Request
Thank you for your letter regarding financial assistance for Delburne's 100 th Centennial
Celebrations. We appreciate the opportunity to be considered for Red Deer County, one-
time event funding. Please find attached a list of our executive, schedule of events and
projected budget.
Approximately two years ago, a group of interested citizens began the process of planning
for Deiburne's 100th Celebrations. The main celebration/reunion will take place from
Saturday June 28 th through July 1 st. Our main objective is to bring together former
neighbours, friends, school students and families to a common place in which to visit and
celebrate Delburne's history. We also plan to provide activities, meals and entertainment
for all ages.
A retired Delburne school teacher has invited 50 years of Delburne School Students to
return for the weekend. She plans on organizing class photo's for each of these years, and
school tours will also be offered. This will be a large project and bring into the Village
hundreds of people over the celebration weekend. In 1988 when Delburne celebrated
their 75th year, over 4000 people registered. Therefore we are busily working hard to
prepare for that possibility once again.
Delburne’s 100th Centennial Celebrations – request
Page 15 of 44
Our committee encouraged groups and organizations in the Community to be a part of the
celebrations, by hosting some of the activities, events etc. We are pleased that many have
come forward collectively in an effort to make the weekend a success.
Plans are underway to recognize, (Century Families), families who were in the Delburne
area in 1913 or prior, and whose descendants are still living here today. They will be
honored as well as others, at a program on the Sunday afternoon, during which time we
will also have guest speakers.
We have applied to Federal and Provincial programs for assistance, and the Village of
Delburne has committed, $15,000 towards the celebrations. Souvenirs will be for sale and
this will bring in some revenue. We also plan to approach Corporations for sponsorship.
However, costs involved are substantial and it will be necessary to continue to work
diligently in other fund raising initiatives to reach our goals.
At your request we have included the Red Deer County in our budget. We are requesting
$5,000.00 towards our project. We would be most appreciative of any assistance you are
able to provide. Your contribution will be well recognized on your behalf. We look
forward to your reply.

Subject: Innisfail Municipal Seed Cleaning Plant — Request for Financial Assistance
1.0 PURPOSE — review of a request received from the Innisfail Municipal Seed Cleaning Plant (IMSCP) for financial assistance from Red Deer County in relation to the Plant's purchase of a color sorter (letter attached).
2.0 BACKGROUND / DISCUSSION - the Innisfail Municipal Seed Cleaning Plant was built in 1959 with one-third of the funding for the construction coming from the province, one-third from the County and one-third from shareholder funding. The plant was set up as a cooperative. The Board of Directors consists of nine members: six from the Plant's shareholder members; two from Red Deer County and one from Alberta Agriculture. Currently, Councillors Archibald and Lorenz are the County's representatives appointed to the Board of Directors.
Under the terms of the Weed Control Act, a processing facility that performs custom cleaning (i.e. the Innisfail plant) is subject to an annual inspection process. This inspection is completed by Red Deer County Agricultural Services' staff who possess the qualifications necessary for completing said inspections.
Section 264(1) of the Municipal Government Act states that a municipality may only lend money or guarantee the repayment of a loan if (a) the loan or guarantee is made under subsection (2) or (3). Section 264(2) states a municipality may (a) lend money to a non-profit organization if the council considers that the money loaned or money obtained under the loan that is guaranteed will be used for a purpose that will benefit the municipality. Section 241(f) of the Act states, a 'non-profit organization' means (i) a society, credit union or co-operative established under a law of Canada or Alberta. A search of the Government of Alberta Corporate Registry shows the Innisfail Municipal Seed Cleaning Plant Limited as an Active Alberta Cooperative.
At the IMSCP's February 1, 2013, meeting a resolution was adopted for IMSCP to make an application to Red Deer County for a grant of $25,000 representing one quarter of the capital cost for the purchase of a new color sorter (copy of minutes attached). The IMSCP advises that the need for clean seed is expanding due to the various influxes of disease, and the technology provided by the color sorter will facilitate a higher standard of clean seed while reducing the dockage that is experienced with other technologies. They advise that this would also facilitate farmers to do separations on commercial grain to save dockage and bring grain up to a higher grade.
Prior to the request being forwarded to Red Deer County, the IMSCP forwarded a request to Red Deer County's Agricultural Services Board (ASB) that was considered at ASB's January 10, 2013, meeting. At that time, ASB adopted the following two resolutions: "Moved to make a recommendation to have Council review the request from the Innisfail Municipal Seed Cleaning Plant (vote of 6 to 1 in favor)" and "Moved to recommend to Red Deer County Council that the Agricultural Services Board supports providing the Innisfail Municipal Seed Cleaning
Innisfail Municipal Seed Cleaning Plant – request for
Page 22 of 44
Plant with a loan of $75,000 for a color sorter, as requested, at a reasonable interest rate (vote of 4 to 3 in favor)." A copy of the letter received by ASB and a copy of the page of the draft minutes of the January 10, 2013, ASB meeting showing the resolutions are attached.
3.0 ALTERNATIVES 3.1 Approve the request of the Innisfail Municipal Seed Cleaning Plant for a financial contribution of
$25,000 to go toward the Plant's purchase of a color sorter. 3.2 Approve a financial contribution of another value. 3.3 Deny the request for funding.
4.0 FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS — a financial contribution to the Innisfail Municipal Seed Cleaning Plant has not been included in the 2013 budget; however, if approved, funds could be available through the County's General Reserve. Approval of funding would also require an amendment to the County's 2013 operating budget.
5.0 RECOMMENDATIONS — that Council determine the level of financial support it deems appropriate for this funding request, and, if funding is approved, amend the 2013 operating budget to reflect the amount of funding being provided.

Red Deer County
The Innisfail Municipal Seed cleaning Plant was setup in 1959 as a co-operative to clean seed for farmers
in the County of Red Deer. When the plant was setup, it was done on a 1/3 shared cost basis with the
Province of Alberta, County of Red Deer and farmers in the County of Red Deer. To date we have 400
members with 70 actively cleaning seed each year. The plant also handled seed sales to 178 farmers. In
the last year the plant cleaned 214,000 bushels of grain representing over 100,000 acres of production.
With the need for clean seed expanding due to various influxes of disease, the IMSCPL has acquired a
colour sorter for the plant. This technology will facilitate a much higher standard of clean seed while
reducing the dockage experienced with other technologies. This would also facilitate farmers to do
separations on commercial grain to save on dockage and bring grain up to a higher grade. This
technology is very expensive but we were able to source a machine that fits the capacity of our plant
without having to buy a new machine. The capital cost as well as modifications to the existing plant to
facilitate the installation and commissioning of the colour sorter is approximately $100,000.00. Final
costs will be available once the machine is up and running.
We have actively pursued programs such as "Growing Forward" but due to funding shortfalls and
timelines we are unable to receive funds for this project.
We therefore request that the County of Red Deer provide $25,000.00 towards this project. This project
directly benefits all farmers in the county by ensuring that everyone has access to technology that will
help prevent the spread of crop diseases.
If you have any further questions please contact John Buyks, President at 403 227 4403.

Subject: Rge Rd 21, North of Hwy 11A — Proposed Road Closure at Shoreline, Bylaw No. 201311
1.0 PURPOSE — to hold a public hearing for Bylaw No. 2013/1, a bylaw for a road closure on Rge Rd 21 between NE 11 and NW 12, 39-2-5 at the shoreline of Sylvan Lake to provide for the installation of a barrier to restrict vehicle access to Sylvan Lake at this location; foot access to the water body would continue to be provided.
2.0 BACKGROUND / DISCUSSION — this road is located on the west side of Red Deer County, north of former Hwy 11A, adjacent to Sections 1 and 12, 39-2-5, with the road ending at Sylvan Lake. Currently, many people utilize this road to launch their boats into the lake even though it is not really what one would consider a boat launch. This road has been in this condition, accessing the lake, for many years. However, many issues have been created on this road over the years due to the 'misuse' of the road (i.e. parking, garbage disposal, washroom facilities). Following review, the recommendation is being made to place a barricade across the road that would eliminate the ability for vehicles to drive into the lake and allow for only foot access to the lake.
At the January 15, 2013, meeting, Council gave first reading to the bylaw for this road closure. The intent is to close the road at the shoreline of the lake; consequently, the proposed closure would not be hindering any accesses to adjacent properties (Summer Village of Half Moon Bay access road to the west and Camp Kasota access to the east) as the barricade would be placed north of these accesses.
Even though access to water bodies is a concern, the intent is that public access will still be available, only vehicle access (driving into the water body) will be eliminated. In the summer of 2012, Lacombe County constructed a new boat launch on the north side of Sylvan Lake that provides the public with the ability to access the lake to launch boats. This is a facility that provides sufficient infrastructure for the launching of boats and parking facilities for the vehicles and boat trailers; infrastructure that is not available along the County's road (Rge Rd 21).
Following first reading to Bylaw No. 2013/1, correspondence advising of the proposed closure was mailed to the municipalities surrounding Sylvan Lake (Lacombe County, Town of Sylvan Lake and the five Summer Villages), the Sylvan Lake Management Committee and adjacent landowners. In addition, the referral to other agencies as mandated by the province also occurred. The information has been posted on the County's website since January 24, 2013, and advertisements appeared in the February 20 and February 27 editions of the Red Deer Express.
Responses to the proposed road closure have been received from the following: Alberta Transportation who advise that they normally do not support closures that access water; four Summer Village of Half Moon Bay residents noting support of the proposed closure, and Lacombe County encouraging Red Deer County to not proceed with the closure (letters
Bylaw No. 2013/1 - a bylaw for the closure of Range
Page 35 of 44
included with report). Inquiries have also been received by phone, and it is anticipated that these persons will attend the public hearing to provide comment.
Dependent on the comments received during the public hearing, administration recommends that Bylaw No. 2013/1 be forwarded to the Minister of Alberta Transportation for consideration.
3.0 ALTERNATIVES 3.1 Approve Bylaw No. 2013/1 being forwarded to the Minister of Transportation for consideration. 3.2 Refer decision in relation to Bylaw No. 2013/1 for additional information (Direction will be
required with regard to what information is needed). 3.2 Take no further action on Bylaw No. 2013/1, which will result in the road remaining in its current
condition.
4.0 RECOMMENDATIONS - that that Bylaw No. 2013/1 be forwarded to the Minister of Alberta Transportation for consideration.
