A few weeks ago, the Chamber of Commerce started a petition to provide a forum for members of the community to address issues at Council which are clearly impeding the business of the City. You can view (and sign) the petition at http://chn.ge/1hi4y0Y. If you’re concerned about anonymity you can sign it and not comment and your name will not appear publicly.
On Monday, November 2 at 7 pm representatives of the Chamber will address City Council providing an update to their Report to Council last February. At that presentation, the Chamber outlined their principles and philosophies as well as some civic priorities, mostly agreed to by Council. On Monday, the Chamber will point to Council’s record of achievements a year after being elected to office, as well as discuss some of the points in the petition.
As always, the Chamber is simply seeking the most effective and efficient municipal government. We are willing to step in and help as a respectful community leader offering positive solutions to improve relations and deliver ‘excellent municipal governance’ as promised in the City’s Corporate Strategic Plan.
We invite you to attend this meeting and show your support for positive solutions to get City Hall working in a more cohesive and constructive manner. Hope to see you there!
