Sarnia is getting up to $200,000 from the Ontario government to improve the way it delivers services to taxpayers.
The money from the Audit and Accountability Fund will pay for an independent, third party review of City Hall operations and administration.
The consultant’s final report will contain specific recommendations for cost-savings, the minister of municipal affairs said in a letter to Mayor Mike Bradley.
The Ford government pledged in its budget to find savings of four cents on the dollar and the review is a step in that direction, Steve Clark said.
The city will get the money after the province approves the report, which is due no later than Dec. 13.
