With credit to City staff in public works, they were able to get through the design phase quickly and bring it back to Council with a budget to approve. PIC's would add to this time. The way it worked with Yes We Cannon, citizens did the legwork and thus saved both time and money with respect to the usual process of staff carrying all of this out. This is the way it should work. If a great deal of public support can be demonstrated for a project, Council should have the confidence to vote it straight to design and implementation. Things work efficiently when Council does their job as decision makers and staff do theirs to design, engineer, budget and build the project.
