Council Action Plan
During the February 21, 2012 regular council meeting Mayor Nancy Wilhelm-Morden presented the Council Action Plan outlining the deliverables that council has committed to for its three-year term in office.
On January 24, the mayor announced the five priority areas identified by council:
- Fiscal responsibility
- Accountability and engagement
- Client-focused service delivery
- Open for business
- Progressive resort community planning
“Council’s goal is to help position the resort for an optimistic and prosperous future, while ensuring the RMOW is a responsive, accountable partner in the resort,” said Mayor Nancy Wilhelm-Morden in her opening remarks in the plan. “Council recognizes the great work that has been done over the years under the leadership of previous councils and partner organizations in the resort. We want to focus on the RMOW’s role in building on that success.”
The specific deliverables and timeframes within which they will be completed were presented and cover a wide range of major corporate projects from a revitalized annual financial planning process, quarterly reporting and a new oversight committee for Resort Municipality Initiative (RMI) funds, to the delivery of a corporate plan and performance management system, reviewing and monitoring municipal customer service levels and continuing the organizational review.
The Chief Administrative Officer spoke about the implementation of phase one of the organizational restructure review and implementation of the corporate plan and performance management during the meeting.
As part of the fiscal responsibility priority, the mayor announced that council will implement a zero tax and utility fee increase for 2012. “We heard the community clearly during the election and have taken the time and done the due diligence to ensure we could deliver this, and we are very happy to make this announcement tonight. You can expect to hear more information soon about the financial planning process for this year.”
The Council Action Plan deliverables also cover a number of project areas such as pursuing an economic development strategy, exploring free Wi-Fi in the Village, initiating a cultural plan, advancing the post secondary initiative, re-assessing the Cheakamus Community Forest initiative and updating the organization’s communications and engagement strategy.
Several existing and ongoing projects have been highlighted for continued focus including the adoption of the Official Community Plan, continued review of transit, resolution of the asphalt plant and special occasion liquor license issues.
