Council Clips – April 17, 2018

Municipal Benchmarking – Streets and Roads

Canmore is participating with a group of municipalities to benchmark municipal service delivery metrics over time. Council has already seen benchmarking reports from police/RCMP, fire services, wastewater, and solid waste, and tonight they had the opportunity to review the report on roadway operations and maintenance.  In general, Canmore came out as average or better than average in terms of efficiency comparisons.
