Council Examines New Style Of Government

It has been years since council looked at becoming a standing committee style of government but the concept is beginning to rear its head again.
Council plans to have an information session on the pros and cons of adopting that method of government, which consists of councillors joining various sub-committees which deal with major city files.

City Manager Pat Woods says one of the big advantages is that it would speed up council meetings.
The switch to a standing committee style of government was last attempted by the previous council but ultimately fell through.
