18 Nov 2006 organizational meeting
 |  Category: Uncategorized

So now the work starts. We completed 2 days of orientation where many different things were discussed. It was a great time to meet with City staff and talk about governance issues that will effect the City. We reviewed 3 different governance models and have decided to change direction, somewhat. Gone are portfollio assignments, but in there place is a committee-of-the-whole. It is a new concept to Steinbach, but used in other communities. We feel that this will bring new councillors and our new mayor up to speed quicker on the issues effecting our city. The organizational meeting went well, it does feel strange to sit in council chambers. I look forward to our first meeting November 21st. Check back for more updates.
councillor-in-training, Jac
