Notice of Motion: Constructive Use of Council and Administration's Time

  • Share

Ward 14 Official Website
First brought to Council: 
June 29, 2015
Carried as amended

Alberta has been feeling the impact of low oil prices for almost a year now.  Jobs in the private sector continue to be under the microscope.  Budgets will be tight going forward, and citizens are looking for fiscal prudence from the City of Calgary.

Savings—in terms of time and tax dollars—can sometimes be found in the simplest of places:  All you have to do is look.  Many groups get involved when Council meets.  Administration, the public, the media, and many others all have a vested interest in Council meetings.  Everyone’s time is valuable.  It doesn’t happen often, but a few tweaks to Council’s schedule could save everyone’s time and money.

City Council needs to dig deeper for savings, and that is why Councillor Peter Demong brought a motion suggesting changes to Council’s schedule for everyone’s benefit.
