Council's Governance Committee (which merged with the infamous "Accountability and Transparency Committee") will meet on October 12, 2017 to figure out how Councillors can keep their high school grad-style "civic rings" in light of widespread criticism of this one of many Council perks.
Thus far, only four of the 16 Councillors have stated they'll vote to end this perk: Green, A. Johnson, B. Johnson, and Skelly. Strongly in support of billing taxpayers for civic rings are Collins, Ferguson, Jackson, and Pearson.
The October 12th meeting is scheduled for 1:30pm, and is required to be open to the public under the Municipal Act. The public can delegate on the matter by email firstname.lastname@example.org requesting to speak on that date.
