In his address, Christian told a full house he will be proposing a new committee structure in the coming weeks that will be more streamlined and aligned with city services.

They include:

  • a development and sustainability committee (focused on climate change, community planning and development cost charges);
  • a finance committee (to review services agreements, enhance digital strategy and investigate the industrial tax balance);
  • a community services committee (community safety and social planning, healthy Kamloops task force to focus on families, seniors and those with unique needs);
  • a civic operations committee (review service levels, address governance issues and delve into emerging issues); and
  • a community relations committee (maintain and enhance partnerships, including with Thompson Rivers University, Tk’emlups te Sewcepemc and Kamloops-Thompson school district).
