I spent 8 years on city council, we were busy all of the time, one project after another. We had 2 trained engineers on that council, myself and Cathy Watson.
When you are considering spending tax payers money on a project, it really helps to have members on the council that can understand what contractors are talking about. A working knowledge of the terminology and methodology described in documents can save huge amounts of time and $$$$’s. As far as I can determine, Mr. Llanos is an engineer first and foremost, and I feel we need that balance on a new council that will be facing a very challenging 4 years.
