Mayor Responds to CFIB Award
Moose Jaw is looking to the future and not living in the past are Mayor Frasier Tolmie's thoughts when it comes to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) awarding the City of Moose Jaw a Paperweight Award for red tape.
The dubious business award was given to the City of Moose Jaw because of its actions or inaction during the Phase Two of Cast Iron Water Main replacement on High Street West. See Related
Because Mayor Tolmie was out of town and unable to respond by publication time so his comments were not carried in the original story.
“We appreciate the issues faced by High Street property owners and at our first opportunity in May of 2018 the City of Moose Jaw took over the project from the initial contractors.
We ensured project completion while executing frequent, consistent communication to area property owners and residents regarding the construction timeline.
While the CFIB focuses time and effort on looking back, the City of Moose Jaw is focused on further refining our construction and communication practices as we continue to address repairing and replacing our City’s long-ignored infrastructure,” the Mayor said in a statement.
