Council to give yay or nay to planned efficiency review at Wednesday meeting

Regina city council meets today and three big things are on the agenda.

The biggest item is whether or not a $250,000 efficiency review should go ahead. That was something that Mayor Sandra Masters said she wanted to accomplish in her first few months as mayor when campaigning in the civic election.

That review would look at six to eight city services in phase one with recommendations being made on how to improve or adapt them.

Council will also vote on providing a loan of up to 60 million dollars to the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Corporation for a plant renewal project. The current water treatment plant, which supplies water to both Regina and Moose Jaw, is in need of some upgrades.

A discussion on ride-hailing will also be had. A report from city administration says there is no need to changing the current criminal record check requirement or making cameras mandatory in taxis or Uber vehicles.

That report says Regina Police have not received complaints about the behaviours of drivers from the pubulic.
