Consultants from KPMG are in Corner Brook this week conducting interviews and focus group sessions with council, senior management, labour representatives and employees as they continue work on an organizational and operational review of the city.

As part of the overall review members of the public are invited to provide input into the process and a public forum is scheduled for Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Pepsi Centre.

The forum will be led by the consultant team who will be seeking input from residents in an effort to identify opportunities to ensure municipal service delivery is responsive, efficient, sustainable and meets the growing demand of residents, legislative requirements and leading practices in local government.

Meanwhile, the consultants have also prepared a survey which will be distributed to council and staff of the city who have until May 9 to respond to it. To view the survey questions, interview guide and focus group questions visit the City of Corner Brook website at www.cornerbrook.com.

    Maintain current taxation level. Cut non worthwhile services which do not serve a majority of the public interest. Right size city hall and public depot. Institute annual performance reviews on all staff top to bottom. Cut travel and unesscential city expenses. Place greater controls on city vehicles parked in private driveways, I have observed city employees using vehicles privately. Stop funding sporting groups and other not for profits with tax payer money. Get rid of Bus service, waste of funding for a small city. Start decreasing funding to Pepsi Centre over a period of time, it is now time for this facility to start taking care of itself. Stop giving free space to Arts community at city hall for free. Start charging admission to Pepsi Centre for all users such as walkers. Make programs to improve or replace old or obsolete infrastructure in a timely manner. Encourage and support economic growth and not just lip service. Additional by laws to improve this city, such as mandatory garbage coverage complete with fines. Generally get control of this city and how it operates. The city is to big for its britches
