Mayoral candidate Paula Havixbeck says she would make city hall more transparent if elected Winnipeg’s next mayor.
“Many of the problems we saw at city hall over the last two years were the result of decisions being made behind closed doors,” Havixbeck said. “Time and time again we see gaps in the services our city provides residents.”
Havixbeck made reference to the fire-paramedic station land scandal, and two audits into both the city’s real estate dealings and the new Winnipeg police headquarters.
The Charleswood — Tuxedo councillor also said she will hold more council meetings and abolish the executive policy committee.
Havixbeck would also adopt a case management system for citizens or businesses who have complex issues needing attention by the city.
The civic election is October 22.
