If you want to make a verbal presentation to Executive Committee, you just have to show up and fill in a form.  You will have 10 minutes.

The recommendation is to have it forwarded to the February 24th, 5:30 pm City Council meeting.  If you wish to make a presentation to City Council, you have to provide a written brief of your remarks to the City Clerk’s Office by Thursday, February 20th at 1 pm.  You can email your request and brief to clerks@regina.ca

To see the draft budget go to www.regina.ca/residents/council-committees/meeting-calendar-agenda and then click on the Executive Committee on January 15th and then click on the agenda item EX14-1 on the right hand side and you will either directly see the budget or it will be downloaded to your computer.

Any thoughts on the budget can be sent to FRPL or to your City Councilor if you have concerns or questions.  There is likely going to be a FRPL letter sent to City Council in February.

Suggest a new name for the North Central Shared Facility

The Albert Library will be relocated to the North Central Shared Facility. The Albert Branch will still retain the same name – this is a chance to name the new overall facility. Deadline for suggestions is Feb. 28, 2013.

We need a name!

A message from the North Central Shared Facility:

Early in the development of the project it acquired the working title of North Central Shared Facility. It’s time to give it a real name, and with the project actively moving forward it is timely that we do it now. Please see the attached PDF file with more information and a response form. NCSF_NamingForm_V

What do you think it should be called? What name do you think will reflect the values of the community and the purpose and significance of the facility? We need your ideas!
