Public input sought on Vernon core review

Residents are being asked to provide input on how the City of Vernon should operate.

A public workshop will be held Jan. 29 as part of the City of Vernon’s core services review.

“The workshop, facilitated by KPMG, is a forum for those interested to identify opportunities for improvement, ways to reduce costs or improve revenues in order to contain property taxes and allow investments where needed,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky.

During the session, participants will be split into groups to review the information on city services and discuss participants’ ideas on opportunities for the city to reduce costs and improve revenues.

“Notes will be taken during the session and will be used as one of the inputs during the remainder of the project,” said Sawatzky.

The workshop will run from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Vernon Recreation Complex.

Residents who wish to participate are asked to register at www.vernon.ca/coreReview

Service profiles can be read before the workshop at www.vernon.ca/core_review/
