Nanaimo FPCOW Meeting Sept.19, 2011

 Monday September 19, 2011 4:30 p.m.
City Hall Board Room
455 Wallace Street, Nanaimo, B.C.

City Director of Finance, Mr. Clemens will make a presentation updating council on performance measures.

Council will also be asked to approve a second round of Community Service Grants. You might want to know why staff recommends paying $1600 for haircuts for homeless and low income people but denies Citizens on Patrol money to provide additional patrols in areas most susceptible to crime. Or how the Nanaimo Community Gardens Society plan to use $1000 in the Gleaning program.

Remember it is city council on the advice of city staff that make decisions all the time on how to spend YOUR tax dollars, and unless you pay attention they pretty much just do as they please. $16 million for a new office without going to public tender, is just one example of what happens when you (the taxpayer) isn't paying attention.
