Councillors Look Into Eliminating Several Council Seats

As the city looks for every way to save money, council is turning the microscope on itself in order to save cash.

Council will be looking into slashing down the number of councillors around the horseshoe by as many as four, which would leave six councillors and the mayor.

Councillor Chris Titus making the proposal and he says if four seats were cut, that would easily save over half a million dollars in the course of a single mandate.

Council will look into the finer details in the coming weeks, such as how many council seats to cut or whether to get rid of the at-large positions.
