Council has directed city staff to take a look at how other municipalities and large organizations save money whenever job vacancies arise. The city’s CAO and commissioner of human resources will carry out the review.
Organizations will often reassess and restructure a department after an employee retires.
Council received a report Monday outlining how a review of the city’s finance department has resulted in internal savings of nearly $100,000.

The most important part of a mayor's job is to treat property taxpayers' money with respect. So far Mayor Provenzano is doing an excellent job!

And if you owned a business downtown, you could apply.

But I don't, and neither do the majority paying property tax. How is this saving taxpayer money? This doesn't benefit anyone but those subsidized freeloaders? Pay for your own renovations.

Has anyone really stopped to think about the decline of shoppers downtown? With less jobs (considering the decline in well paying jobs), a shrinking population and box stores/malls........someone's taking a hit. I can't see the injection of money into the downtown core making any significant change in peoples shopping habits.
