Extra Bike Patrols Could Hit Downtown Streets
City council has directed administration to include $111,650.00 in the draft 2020 budget for a summer foot/bike program.
"It's something the Activate Safety Task Force recommended," said Coun. Kari Gares.
A final decision on additional foot/bike patrols by bylaw officers will occur during 2020 budget deliberations.
In terms of the city potentially hiring private security for overnight patrols downtown, a draft request for proposals is currently being developed by administration.
