Calgary City Council has been wasting money during council meetings that can sometimes drag on for days costing taxpayers overtime salary dollars. But it’s part of Mayor Nenshi’s job to chair these meetings efficiently, isn’t it?
The simple solution would be to just set a schedule and stick to it, but instead Council brought in a parliamentary expert from Vancouver to suggest solutions.
Watch as I explain the options that resulted from the consultation, one of which is a costly solution that requires bringing in someone from outside council to take on the job of chairing meetings for Nenshi.
The Mayor seems to like the option of not having to chair the meetings and seems upset that the media is portraying this situation as one that results from him not doing a good job.
Nenshi says this consultation will help him do his job better.
But you know government is too big and too entitled when they'd rather spend your money on a convoluted mess rather than opt for a straight forward solution that’s as simple as making a plan and sticking to it.
