The turbulent times at Tom Davies Square show no signs of slowing down, with tonight's city council meeting shaping up to be as fiery and controversial as any in recent memory.
In addition to motions on a policy to force Greater Sudbury Utilities to pay the city annual dividends, which the utility has issues with, and a motion to restrict the actions of the downtown BIA, council will also tackle a sweeping economic development reform plan from Mayor Brian Bigger.
Bigger wants to replace the entire Greater Sudbury Development Corp. board of directors with a hand-picked group he's calling the Sudbury Select Cabinet. City councillors would take a more direct role in making economic development decisions, a move opposed by the board, as well as the Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce, which is calling on the mayor to defer the vote.
