WHAT'S HAPPENING

Posted on: January 2, 2019

'Tis the Season for Resolutions

I have talked much about our housing initiatives, but “Fire and Finances” are also key agenda items for the year ahead.

A home for our first responders. I am hopeful that 2019 will be the year where we finalize our transition plan for our first responders. The vision is simple; an organizational structure that will make our community safer, and a physical structure that keeps our first responders in a healthy environment and enables them to operate as efficiently and effectively as possible. Realizing this vision is a top priority for 2019. I am encouraged by the progress of the work done so far regarding the consolidation of our fire and police with that of the City of Sun Valley.  I am also excited that we have started preliminary work on the design requirements for a combined public safety facility.

Financial belt-tightening. After a fortnight of eating a little too much pie, it is hard for me to talk about belt-tightening. However, with no crystal ball and some economic uncertainty in the air, we will be reviewing our 2019 budget to ensure we have the right balance between investing in our community and saving for harder times.

Wishing everyone the best for the year ahead. 2019 – Bring it on!

Cheers,
Neil
