Alderman Tom Johnston confirmed that one of the issues addressed was whether or not to add a new alderman to the council. Alderman Dave Warden stepped up in favour of the idea saying that the $22,000. cost of another member would be far cheaper than paying staff overtime to help out on committees. he said there were also other benefits to and 8th alderman.
Johnston added that they needed to look more at the structure of the committee before coming to any decisions, and the proposal was postponed.
