Goes to council tonight.  Also looking to double the size of its full time firefighters.  Expensive times for Langford...

The perfect time for a neophyte city council to do what it can to inhibit the growth of the tax base.

During last council’s term, the majority of committee meetings were cancelled, apart from the planning and zoning committee, which met more often than all the other committees combined. In 2019, only 11 out of the 48 scheduled meetings for the finance, protective services, parks and transportation committees went ahead, according to a city staff report from Feb. 6’s council meeting.

 

After 2021, the schedule for council meetings was changed, meaning there were only five meetings a year for those four committees (rather than the previous monthly meeting schedule). Although meetings were still being cancelled – only the transportation committee meeting in 2021 had one meeting cancelled, otherwise, the finance, protective services, parks and transportation committees had at least two of the five meetings cancelled.

 

As these are interim committees, no specific qualifications for committee members have been included.

 

Langford resident Mike Wignall, who has previously served on two different committees, was concerned about this point. A list of qualifications was omitted from the application as the committees are only temporary and doing so will allow them be as “open and inclusive” as possible, according to Marie Watmough, deputy director of corporate services for the City of Langford.

The secrecy of that group should be an issue for Elections BC.

another non-slate?

 

Can we have a municipal dictator? At least she/he won't pretend to care about us, which is so confusing, so often...

Why won’t they admit who started the group? Why would that be kept so hush-hush?

And is there a Victoria connection? Is that group, or was that group, created by political interests already active in the City of Victoria?

Seems to be something odd going on.

Weird sure. Not sure why Elections BC should or would get involved. Other than the name, there isn’t anything elections related there that I see?
