Mayor Hope says service review analyzing C-K’s ‘core business’
A service review for Chatham-Kent got the go-ahead on Monday night.
Council approved a staff recommendation to take a comprehensive look at all municipal services.
Chatham-Kent Mayor Randy Hope says the review to look at the core business for Chatham-Kent.
“Find out what we are doing and how we can find efficiencies inside our organization… it’s going to be like a microscope approach,” he said. “Everybody is asking us to continue providing service without raising taxes, so we have to find what is our core business. So how can we find some savings to achieve these things to improve customer service.”
Hope added: “We have over 120 businesses units inside the Municipality, so it’s going to take some time to get done. We are hoping to achieve wins immediately, but we have go to also know that we are analyzing things properly because we have a very large community and we need to make sure the services are maintained throughout the community.”
