Chatham-Kent conducting service review
Chatham-Kent Council is about to embark on a municipal service review.
C-K’s elected officials voted 11-5 in favour of systematically analyzing where possible cuts or reductions could take place.
A staff report indicates that through this Service Sustainability Review Process, C-K intends to:
- Determine what services should be delivered by CK and at what level those services should be delivered
- Identify potential improvements to effectiveness and efficiency in the delivery of those identified services
- Develop a plan to achieve financial sustainability for those identified services
The report says 130 different reviews will be needed, and it would take three years to complete at a price tag of 1.1 million for staff time.
The cost is expected to be $100,000 a year to make up the time staff will need to spend on the project.
A public meeting will be held in the Council Chambers on Wednesday, July 25, at 7 p.m. to discuss the process as well.
