As part of its approval of the 2019 Town of Milton Operating and Capital Budget, Milton Council agreed to undertake a Core Services Review, which I had recommended be done by the municipality during the municipal election campaign last fall.
It is vital that all Town of Milton services are affordable, excellent and relevant. A Core Services Review will provide a check-and-balance, in that regard. As I said during the election campaign, a review should occur every four years and should be co-ordinated with long-term budgeting and planning, including infrastructure investment and residential/commercial growth.
While a number of municipal services are delivered well in our community, the Core Services Review will determine if any could be delivered better and more economically – and how do they mesh with the long-term plans for the community. CR
