For the second year in a row, CIF and AMO staff has been travelling throughout the Province informing members about current issues and initiatives of consequence to municipalities. The sessions are intended to provide feedback on how input from last year’s consultations was used to help inform AMO policy and the CIF 2013 workplan and budget, and the results of those efforts. The sessions are also intended to solicit input into 2014 priorities and issues for the two organizations.
Already more than 30 people have participated in sessions in London and Dryden. The next meeting takes place in Peel on April 24 and the final two are in Smiths Falls (May 23) and North Bay (May 27).
Valuable feedback has been provided
Participation in the sessions has been great with new attendees ranging from clerks and treasurers to program operators from large and small municipalities, and also including participants from last year’s sessions. Participants have shared candid views on issues such as:
Datacall - reducing/streamlining and/or harmonizing the Datacall process and questions
Metrics - selecting appropriate metrics for the Datacall
CIF - preferred sources of future funding for CIF and perspectives on its ongoing role/contribution to the Blue Box program
Best Practices – moving the ball forward in a practical and realistic manner.
These issues and many more are under discussion and this is your chance to share your views.
