Hello- Welcome to the Spring-time edition of my newsletter. I had hoped to get this posted a little earlier, but things were very hectic after the city decided to suspend back alley garbage collection, so my best-laid plans went awry. In any case, I hope you will still find it relevant to hear about some of the decisions City Council made on your behalf this past month.
And now on to my March report:
Welcome to the February edition of my newsletter, City Council Matters. Due to the annual SUMA convention, Council only met once in February. SUMA stands for Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association, and their convention is an opportunity for elected municipal representatives to get together with colleagues from other cites to share experiences, problems and solutions. This year, the councils of Regina and Saskatoon tried something different and actually got together separately as well. This was an interesting experience. It really convinced all of us that while our cities may be different, our challenges are the same. Both Regina and Saskatoon are facing numerous complaints about snow removal, both worry about how to pay for and fix the roads, and both are facing pressures due to unprecedented growth. So much for the Saskatoon/Regina rivalry!
