I'm expecting a full afternoon at City Hall today, with two back-to-back committee meetings.
The governance committee kicks things off at 3 p.m. Items on that agenda include the issue of full-time versus part-time councillors, a discussion of a governance framework and an update on service rationalizations -- which until recently we knew as service reviews.
At 5 p.m.the community and social services committee will launch into its own agenda, which includes a notice from the county it intends to add nine new staff to the mostly city-funded social services department, a discussion about alcohol sales at Hastings Stadium, presentation of the Older Adult Strategy and an update on the affordable bus pass program.
We'll have coverage of both meetings in the next day or two.
