City Council Meeting Mar 26, 2018

Council had a single public meeting on Monday Mar 26.

Unfortunately due to technical issues beyond our control we were not able to live stream the meeting . . . but we did record it and you can watch it (or whatever piece you want from it) below.

It was also a brief meeting. Question period took up almost half the time as the pie shows.

What did they talk about? Well

City Council had one meeting on Feb 26.
Councilors Krog and Ross were absent.
