Mayor’s Update – May 26, 2020

I would like to highlight a Motion proposed by Councillor Thompson at our last Council meeting — to initiate a delivery and service review of the Town.  

A service and delivery review involves a rigorous, examination – by a third party – of all the services we provide to our businesses and residents and how they are delivered.  The goal is to identify operational efficiencies as well as best practices … ensuring we are providing the highest level of service at the best price.

The last time this type of review was conducted was in 2013 and given the pressures we expect in the coming months and years, it is timely to do this again. Although the yearly budget process involves a review of services and expenditures, this type of in-depth examination is an important extra step to ensure we are good stewards of your money.

Just as investing in our community is vital to the growth of our local economy — so too is the careful consideration of all expenditures to ensure your tax dollars are managed as efficiently as possible.

Councillor Thompson’s motion passed unanimously and I believe this demonstrates this Council’s commitment to take action and deliver results for our community.

I look forward to sharing the outcome of this review with you in the future.
