Re-Elect Our Councillor Pat Saito

MISSISSAUGA WARD 9
Leadership. Integrity. Experience.

With an annual opening budget of $2.4 billion and a capital budget of $.7 billion, the Region of Peel provides a wide range of services to our community.

As your Regional Councillor, I work hard to keep this budget as low as possible by finding more efficiencies and reducing duplication with city services.  In 2018, the Region’s budget increased by 2.6% with a 1% impact on the property tax bill.  The biggest driver was the Peel Regional Police budget.  While Council does not control the operations or the budget of the police, we do give final approval to the budget that has already been vetted and approved by the Police Services Board.  We do not see line by line costings so it is hard to make changes.

Some of the more recent legislation passed by the province give the region even more responsibility in the area of Planning.  This can result in duplication of staff with the city and I am carefully looking at how we can avoid this.

In order to reduce duplication in road management, I chaired a task force that reviewed the ownership and operations of regional arterial roads.  In our community, this includes Britannia, Derry and Erin Mills Parkway.  It was a long process but in the end we moved maintenance to the city thus reducing the existing duplication of staff and operations.
