Strathcona County is taking a look at how they can improve.
 
The county has arranged a program review to see how efficient and effective they're running departments.
 
"Through the budget, we asked how do we audit each of our departments in Strathcona County?," said Strathcona County councillor Bill Tonita. "I was interested in figuring out how we can drill down deeper in each department to find out what we're doing well and what we can improve upon."
 
Strathcona County has decided to perform the review in house, rather than pay for an external audit.
 
"We have 19 departments," added Tonita. "Often we have good organizations but we don't go that extra step to take us to great."
 
The intention of the program reviews are to create goals, long term financial sustainability, acknowledge what is working and identify what can be improved. 
 
Results will come to council at a further date.
