NANAIMO — The status quo is changing about how City of Nanaimo councillors decide what they should tackle as an administration.
The strategic planning meetings, where councillors discuss what crucial items need to be addressed in the four years they’re in power, will now have a public element.
Residents will be able to observe the process from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 18.
The meetings can chart a drastic course for the City and are often shrouded in secrecy.
