The City of Nanaimo is set to move ahead with the first step for a core services review, the mayor announced Monday.
Mayor Bill McKay announced in an open meeting Monday that the city has chosen Victoria-based Dr. Roshan Danesh to help city council flesh out terms of reference for its new core review.
The one-day session with Danesh on April 15 – a $3,500 cost – is aimed at helping the core services review committee create a scope of work that will be used to draft a request for proposal. An outside consultant will be hired to do the actual review, a press release states.
Danesh is a lawyer, educator and ‘conflict resolution innovator.’ McKay is chairman of the core services review committee, which is made up of council.
