Under attended again, but still worth the time. I was face to face with five of the councilors. I wasn’t paying attention, but I am pretty sure the sixth was at a table I didn’t visit.
I went to two tables, the ones on health and recreation. I didn’t clue in until after coming home, but I think there can be a lot more co-ordination between the various bodies in town. This isn’t a criticism because it is being done. I just wonder if more can be done so that overlapping doesn’t occur and more people can be involved.
For example,in the discussion on health, I asked what the city can do seeing that health is actually a provincial area. Gina quickly responded that the city can be advocates. The discussion spun in different directions but recreation came up and how the dietitian for example meets people at the civic during walking club or some other activity.
I am just wondering how much communication occurs between the health board, the school board, the city, and any other organizations to see where everyone can work together to reach a common goal that might not be possible by working alone.
