                WHEREAS As we approach the next municipal election there is an opportunity to look at the way we conduct our business, and

                WHEREAS there may be a need for a reduction of two or more councillors, rather than the current number of 10, and

                WHEREAS there may also be a need to go to a ward system.

                THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT Administration prepare a report addressing the following questions,

                1 -- How does Cornwall compare to other cities with respect to the number of Councillors?

                2 -- How does Cornwall compare to other cities with respect to the "ward" system?

                3 -- What steps would we have to take if this Council made a choice to implement these changes?
