LETHBRIDGE - You'll be able to track the travel budgets for the Mayor and members of City
Council in the new year.
The City will begin posting detailed and
itemized reports on their website showing the travel expenditures. Councillors
get $7,000 a year, while the Mayor gets $18,000.
Councillor Wade Galloway
brought the motion forward and feels it really speaks to openness and
transparency. He says "there's been no problem with people overspending the
budget, but part of providing confidence to the public is letting them know
exactly how and where we're spending the money and making sure that we are
getting value for those dollars."
Galloway adds other cities in the province are already doing this like Red
Deer and St. Albert.
