Purchasing bylaw referred back to staff

A bylaw that only comes around for reconsideration every five years has been referred back to staff.

The city’s purchasing bylaw, which designates the processes and responsibilities of staff and council during the sourcing and awarding of contracts for work and purchases, was last revised in 2010.

It currently recommends several changes that would give more responsibility to staff when making purchases.

At the most recent meeting of the finance committee, Councillor Nancy Diamond referred the bylaw back to staff for further housekeeping and clarification.
