Mayor Survey Question 3

What do you think is the role of a municipal government? Do you think the City does too many things, not enough, or just the right amount?

Brad Magee:

I believe the role of municipal government is to look after the city, it’s citizens, and our businesses first. I feel that the current city council has not been doing enough. There are changes to bylaws that hurt businesses, while some businesses were denied expansion. Our citizens need jobs and an income. Holding our business owners back hurts our local economy and our tax base.


Ken Johnston:

Ideally the role of Municipal Govt is to provide good basic services and amenities, promote our business and location and ensure a good quality of life for everyone. Unfortunately both the Provincial and Federal Govt have abandoned leadership in so many of their jurisdictions that Cities find themselves drawn in to provide or quasi provide them. Examples are housing and health care. Great question, we find ourselves doing too much with too little.


Buck Buchanan:

The role of the Municipal Government in my opinion is to be a Service provider, I think we are invested in several Services and we need to figure out which Services we should be providing and which Services should be contracted out.
