The City of Fort Saskatchewan is gearing up to review its services.
A motion was made for council to adopt the program service level and review framework at the Tuesday (Apr.10) meeting. All were in favour.
This will allow the city to confirm how they are delivering services and the cost.
“I was really glad to see it get approved. I think administration did a really good job of finding a good best practice. The City of Calgary has been doing program and service reviews for a number of years now and I have had some experience with it as a consultant,” said councillor Gordon Harris. “I pointed administration in that direction, they developed a draft program to do these reviews.”
Harris said this will provide transparency to the community and predicted the program to have a very positive outcome over time.
“Administration will be coming back with the methodology more fully enhanced and we’ll be able to see exactly how we’re going to do it and we’ll get going,” he added.
First up for review will be recreation services.
Roughly $125,000 has been allocated by the city in the 2018 budget to conduct program and service level reviews.
