Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 28/10/2015 (1327 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

Brian Bowman kept the same six councillors on his executive committee but gave some of them new duties.

In an announcement Wednesday afternoon, Bowman said he wasn’t making any changes to the make-up of the executive policy committee, who are the chairmen of council’s standing committees.

Coun. Janice Lukes remains acting deputy mayor, to go along with her role as chairwoman of public works.

Coun. Mike Pagtakhan remains deputy mayor. He was appointed to chair the reconstituted committee of protection, community services and parks.

Other EPC appointments include:

  • Coun. Jeff Browaty, chairman of the new innovation committee (formerly headed protection and community services);
  • Coun. John Orlikow: chairman of property and development, heritage and downtown development;
  • Coun. Marty Morantz: remains chairman of finance;
  • Coun. Brian Mayes: chairman of the new water and waste, riverbank management and the environment (formerly chairman of downtown development, heritage and riverbank management).

The announcement followed on council’s approval earlier in the day of Bowman’s widely applauded restructuring of the standing committee system.

Bowman elevated the former alternate service delivery committee from a casual committee that met quarterly to a standing committee that meets at least monthly and changed its name to innovation committee – fulfilling one of his campaign promises.

Bowman also announced duties for some other members of council but no roles for two councillors – Ross Eadie and Russ Wyatt.

Bowman said he had offered Wyatt the new position of council liaison project management but Wyatt turned him down.

That led to an exchange of accusations on the floor of council and during the lunch break, when Morantz questioned Wyatt’s sincerity in calling for closer project scrutiny when he refused to be liaison for project management.

Wyatt said Bowman breached council confidentiality by sharing his decision with other members of EPC. Wyatt said he turned the position down because no one on Bowman’s staff could explain to him what the role entailed and the offer was made the night before.

Eadie has been a vocal and persistent critic of Bowman during the past year.

Membership on the standing committees will be announced at the special organizational meeting of council, set for Nov. 4.

Duties given to other councillors include:

 

  • Coun. Matt Allard: Council Liaison, francophone and Francophile cities network.
  • Coun. Shawn Dobson, Council representative for the Mayor’s Age Friendly and Senior’s advisory committee;
  • Coun. Jenny Gerbasi: secretary of urban aboriginal opportunities;
  • Coun. Scott Gillingham: chairman of the Winnipeg Police board, council liaison to veteran and military affairs;
  • Coun. Cindy Gilroy: secretary of the End Homelessness Strategies;
  • Coun. Brian Mayes: council liaison for school board and youth opportunities;
  • Coun. Jason Schreyer: council liaison for labour relations.
