Council Projects and Priorities

Operational Review

The Municipality of French River retained the services of KPMG LLP in February 2016, to undertake an Operational Review. The intended objectives were:

  • To provide an overview and evaluation of the Municipality's operations, staffing and service levels;
  • To objectively evaluate the Municipality's operating effectiveness and efficiency, using consultations with staff, comparative analysis and process mapping; and
  • To identify potential opportunities for Council's consideration for changes that will maintain adequate service levels while allowing for the achievement of long-term sustainability for the Municipality.

On September 14th, 2016, Council received an interim progress report by KPMG. The Power Point presentation is available here. 

The Final Report presented March 2, 2017 outlines the results of the analysis, which provides for 12 potential Opportunities for Council’s consideration.

The considerations for the implementation of the Opportunities and their prioritization are reported to Council on a monthly basis or as necessary, additional information on the items are available within the Council Agenda Packages and Minutes or by contacting Management.
