Regarding Councilor Gares notice of motion of the plaque I find it very confusing as it’s to spend $5000.00 on only three councilors who have relatively recently died in office. There have been previous Aldermen, the title used prior to councilors, and councilors before these three and likely will be more after these three die in office. I’m confused why we are only honoring these three? Also there is already a listing of all councilors upon the entrance to council chambers of all members of all past councils with their names and dates of service and if they resigned or died in office. Why do we need a new plaque costing $5000 just outside city hall? What are your thoughts?
Edit: and Patrick Nicol has a bench and plaque in Polson Park already. Cost $10k in 2014
