Chamber applauds City’s restructuring plan

The City’s restructuring plan announced on Wednesday afternoon has received a stamp of approval from the Chamber of Commerce.

“We appreciate the time and effort that Tim and his team have put into this restructuring plan,” Chamber President Steve Bailey said in a Thursday morning statement.

“We are pleased with the changes in the approach of planning initiatives to ‘building and development’ to ensure “efficient processing of day to day applications.”

Council’s commitment to taking proactive steps to address our debt, infrastructure deficit, and business sector demands to reduce tax increases echoes the Chamber’s comments this year regarding municipal fiscal responsibility.

This initiative, coupled with the upcoming Municipal Audit of Procurement, the passion of our amazing citizens and leaders will support a bright and sustainable future for our City, Bailey said.
