A top priority for Port Moody’s Council is developing a long term vision for the City and setting priorities for strategic objectives that they wish to implement. Mayor Joe Trasolini and Councillors are equally concerned about the limitations imposed by dramatic changes in the global economic climate. During the Strategic Plan process, Council considered the challenge of balancing the desires of residents for higher quality services and new programs against the rising costs of providing existing city infrastructure and services.
There is a clear understanding that, when it comes to preparing a Strategic Plan and a budget for the next five years, just continuing to do the same things as the City has done in the past will not work. All councillors are particularly concerned with finding ways to communicate more effectively with the community. They want to hold more town hall meetings and use online tools to interact with residents. All agreed that tough fiscal decisions have to be made in the interest of the community.
Among other financial restraints to be considered by Council will be a review of the level of subsidy allocated to some of the non-core services and grants. Council also plans to control much more tightly the City’s involvement in services that are outside of the City’s mandate.
