On 11 June 2008, Council approved a new process for tracking formal Inquiries and Motions submitted at Standing Committees and Council. Included in this process was the requirement for Committees and Council to receive bi-monthly status updates on these motions and inquiries. Accordingly, this report is being presented to Committee for information.
Departmental Report on Outstanding Motions and Directions
This report integrates the status of outstanding motions and directions to staff, identified as part of the City Manager’s review in the fall of 2008, with the actions that will be taken to ensure that both are addressed appropriately.
Consistent with Council’s direction, the tracking and reporting of formal motions and inquiries is undertaken by the City Clerk’s Office. Protocols have also been established within departments to ensure department-specific motions and inquiries are processed in a timely manner. In those instances where there may be a delay, Council will be provided with an explanation.
There are currently no outstanding Committee Inquiries. The departmental list of Outstanding Motions and Directions to Staff is attached as Document 1.
