Just wondering if any municipalities out there have bylaws or policies that speak to power brushing of lawns in the spring. Specifically, as to whether or not the sand from municipal winter maintenance operations can be brushed back out onto the road surface to be collected as part of street sweeping operations.

Looking for a template or example of such a contract that you would be willing to share or provide me with information to prepare one, including clauses such as: for how long? price? what happens if the business leaves? etc. Any information on the subject is welcomed. Thank you. Joanne

Our draft agenda gets released to Council on the Wednesday (1 week prior to the meeting), then the final agenda goes public on the Friday for the Wednesday meeting.

I have an ex-Mayor asking Council to increase the time between council meeting agenda and the meeting to provide time for members of the public to "absorb" the information and provide feedback. I have already responded to his request but would like to much time do you have between releasing your agenda and your council meeting? Much appreciated.

As part of the City of Burlington’s IT Strategy, we have formed a corporate Information Governance committee to complete an information governance strategy. We are currently seeking a consultant who can apply the ARMA maturity model to our corporate structured and unstructured databases to measure where we are at.

We are wondering if any municipalities have completed this type of work and if you could share your experience and possibly documentation with me. This would be greatly appreciated.
