Enterprise Application Strategy

Changes to Public Art Process
Council brought forward a motion to reconsider the recent resolution that approved the awarding of a contract for $50,300 for a public art project for Downtown Mission. Upon reconsideration, the resolution failed to pass; therefore the project will not move ahead. Council also asked that staff review the public art process and propose recommendations for the future.
