The public is invited to view Grant Thornton’s Phase Two Report of the City’s Programs and Services and share comments from now until July 31.

The comments will be provided to Members of Council for consideration when they discuss the recommendations at a Special Committee of the Whole in September. Grant Thornton presented its Phase Two Report to Members of Council on Monday, June 22.

“This Review is an opportunity for the new City Council to gain a better understanding of the programs and services delivered by the City,” said Mayor Mauro. “It also gives us the prospect of looking for any efficiencies and increasing our effectiveness, with the added bonus of having the majority of the Review costs covered through Provincial funding. We need to be adaptable, looking at what we’re doing now, and what we need to be doing into the future. This Report gives us more information to help us make strategic choices and we want residents to have a voice in this process.”

The Program and Service Review was approved by City Council in March 2019. A Phase One Report was completed by Grant Thornton in November where specific service areas where recommended for further analysis. The Phase Two Report focuses on these specific service area, providing further detailed information and recommendations.
