In 2015, Council voted to embark upon a Core Service Review process. The purpose of this extensive review of all City services, departments and assets is to determine how best to deliver the services that matter the most to our residents.

To date, City Staff has completed over 40 Core Service Reviews and presentations. Below is a complete list arranged by category. Over the coming months, Council will be continuing to make the difficult decisions needed in order to ‘right size’ our municipality. We will be looking at ways to increase revenue, reduce expenses, meet current needs and plan for future growth.

The above file includes a detailed breakdown of the 3 options within Council Report 2016-011 being considered on December 13, 2016. Option A is status quo, Option B is the refurbishment model and Option C is the Twin Pad consolidation model. The breakdown shows the demolition costs that would be required in both Options B and C and the refurbishment model includes all costs to extend the lifecycle of the facilities to the 50 year mark. Please also note that at the bottom of Option B for the SouthEast area arenas, the estimated cost to construct a new single pad facility instead of refurbishing the existing Emily-Omemee arena has also been provided.
