Well summer is upon us and thankfully now that bargaining is over I will have more time to concentrate on reaching out
to the membership.
I have been working remotely with my laptop at City Hall when I am able as well as visiting as many worksites as possible. I am looking forward to continue to do this concentrating more on RCMP and Parks and Rec sites.
The biggest challenges that we are facing for the fall will be our upcoming move into” New City Hall” as well as the exciting ground breaking of our new Main Works Yard for Engineering Operations and Parks Maintenance
