We recently posted CityCaucus.com's 10 FREE tips for saving $$ at City Hall. We think we're just scratching the surface with ten, and by only focusing on Vancouver. One of our suggestions was that City Hall erect some kind of e-bulletin board for staff to share their ideas on how to cut 2% of discretionary spending out of their annual budgets without serious implications for services.
We know these things take some time to get set up. After all, the lumbering City of Vancouver communications department managed by Laurie Best only managed to post six city service announcements in January (somehow the political communications out of the Mayor's office now has free access to the City's communications system, almost matching Best's output - go figure). We figured why not try to save cities the cost -- and post it ourselves!
So CityCaucus.com is making this page a permanent home for comments from City staff from all cities across Canada on their ideas. Just type www.CityCaucus.com/save and it will always take you here. We respect the privacy of all who post here, so all anonymous comments will remain so. Post your ideas, and help to keep taxes under control in your city!
