From the Mayors Chair

Check out the latest version of From the Mayor’s Chair, where I break down the decisions of Council in 2 minutes!

The September 19 Council meeting began with a discussion on the future of Belle Park. Based on recent public feedback, city staff brought forward a recommendation to close the existing golf course and begin work on a new vision for this waterfront green space in the core of the city. Council voted to close the course and adopt a new plan. Last night Council also voted to approve the continuation of a program that uses provincial funding to offer free transit passes to those living on social assistance in the community. Finally, council passed a motion asking staff to investigate the potential benefits and costs of an access without fear policy. Council will report back later this year.
