Coun. Gloria Kovach has brought forward an interesting special resolution for her final council meeting.
The longest-serving member of council will be asking her council peers to endorse making it mandatory for councillors to annually disclose details of their remunerated expenses.
At present, there is annual reporting of expenses. But it only breaks this municipal expense into broad categories such as "mileage" or "sundries."
We have interviewed Kovach and are working on this story.
A post script: I just review the council agenda package for the meeting. At the same meeting, council is to review the proposed Open Government Action Plan. It would be interesting if the plan passed and Kovach's resolution did not.
