Work Process Change in Public Works

Nov 5, 2022 | Developments, Miscellaneous | 0 comments

On November 7 Council agenda there is a staff report recommending modifications as to how municipal services are assumed by the municipality.  I consider the changes are the kind of streamlining we need to do; quality of outcome is not being jeopardized.  As reviewed, the checks and measurements done by Engineering are not being reduced or eliminated.  What is being eliminated is a formal staff report to Council. The new work process includes advising Council, by memo,of intent to assume with one months notice; at that point the relevant Councillor can identify any issues outstanding needing to be addressed. I must admit that over my 3 terms I have often wondered what value there is in the report being brought to Council for approval as I had identified any outstanding issues in advance and they had been addressed.

If you wish to make a deputation to Council about this change you can register to make a deputation to Council by registering at [email protected] by noon on November 7.  Alternatively you can send in comments or questions to [email protected] and your email will be circulated to Council and relevant Staff members.
