One of the core services review recommendations, the cost-cutting exercise led by Mayor Shari Green, was to reduce the number of councillors in Prince George from 8 to 6. The recommendation was put before council this week, and council chose not to pursue it (the mayor, Stoelz and Everitt supported going forward with the idea, the rest did not. Skakun suggested simply reducing pay to save money).
There’s obvious criticism, especially with the relatively fresh elimination of 28 job at city hall. But, the city has roughly 80,000 people. 8 councillors is one for ever 10,000. Seems about right to me.
