This framework included the reasons for which <br />policies could be repealed and an initial list of policies for repeal were brought forward for <br />Council's approval in April 2016. Since that time, staff has continued to monitor the <br />relevancy of all the corporate policies with a view to amending, repealing and replacing, or <br />repealing only as appropriate. <br />REPORT: <br />Each Director has reviewed with their respective General Manager a list of policies relating <br />to their area and identified those which should be repealed for one of the following reasons: <br />1. Program or program funding no longer exists (0 policies). <br />2. Regulation or legislation is already in place (4 policies). <br />3. Policy has been replaced with another policy (2 policies). <br />4. Policy conflicts with another policy (0 policies). <br />5. Policy found redundant, outmoded or dysfunctional (3 policies). <br />
