District of Taylor reviewing core services

The District of Taylor is undertaking a review of the core services it provides as a municipality, and residents will have two chances later this month to give their input.

The review is being carried out by Urban Systems, and will look at municipal services such as water, sewer, roads, parks, and fire protection.

The review will assess the district's current service levels, the cost effectiveness of contracted services, projected growth rates, and the demand for new services now and in the future.

The district will help it understand what levels of services residents want and need, and whether it has the resources and capacity to meet them.

"We really do need to understand the services and the level of services are giving now, and the satisfaction with that," Mayor Rob Fraser said at Monday's council meeting.

"There are a lot of decisions moving forward for us, how we budget, how we're organized, the resources we have for these. Are we hitting the mark with that, and if we're not, what do we need to hit the mark? That then translates into a whole bunch of decisions."

A community survey will launch online Oct. 15 and run to Nov. 18, and paper copies will be available at the district office.

Council will also host a public meeting on Oct. 22 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the community hall for residents to share their thoughts and suggestions.

District staff will also be asked for input.
