QUESTION ADDRESSED TO MORINVILLE MAYORAL CANDIDATES
We have seen so many changes at the administration level in the town office. Our costs for staffing have increased dramatically. You have retained the services of transitional solutions to solve or add to this problem. We have had to pay horrendous costs associated with this company. The services they provide could easily be provided by our current town manager. As members of our current council we place our trust in you to look after our interests, We have had two town Managers replaced, most if not all of the town staff have either been replaced or resigned. We have seen more studies done during your terms than ever before. Our costs associated with these reviews and the costs associated in replacing these employees have been incredible. Transitional solutions have been a costly drain in our pocket books. We are not St. Albert and can not afford to keep flushing money down the drain.
If you are elected mayor what will you do to wean us off the involvement of this company?
Can you tell the people of Morinville the actual costs to date and do they still work for us?
