Committee of the Whole – June 27, 2022 



Departmental reports

  • Codiac RCMP: Staff Sergeant David MacDonnell followed up on the conversation surrounding increased police presence around Riverview parks and schools. S/Sgt. MacDonnell highlighted some of the services and initiatives provided by RCMP beyond front-line patrol; provided statistics on RCMP response in the area; including the tactical traffic unit and bike patrols and discussed other community initiatives in which the RCMP play a role locally.
  • Administrative report: The Town’s Chief Administrative Officer, Colin Smith provided a summary of action taken from the Local Business Forum hosted by the Town in November 2021.
    A report was also provided in response to a request to investigate acquiring ownership of the Mitton covered bridge. Ultimately, the staff recommendation to Council is that because of no guarantee of funding, maintenance requirements and other challenges at the site, it is not operationally feasible to acquire the bridge.
  • Human Resources: Director Finlay was asked about feedback regarding the Town's implementation of the four-day work week. She explained that while it's still early, they've received positive feedback from employees and the public regarding the compressed work week schedule so far.
  • Riverview Fire & Rescue: Chief Robin True thanked Council for their support of the new training area and Facility Dog Program in June. Chief True gave an update on the TMR radio project to increase mobile communication between Fire departments in the area.
