Welcome to the fall issue of InSight, the official magazine of the City of Saint John. This past summer was a busy season for our employees who deliver road maintenance services. In this issue we highlight the work these crews have accomplished.
PlanSJ has reached a project milestone. At the end of September 2011, Council announced its intention to consider adopting the Municipal Plan. Find out more inside.
In 2012, Harbour Clean-Up will be complete. Check in on the progress.
InSight is published three times a year to provide you, our citizens, with in-depth information about City services, policies and initiatives. More than 40,000 copies of each issue are distributed – enough for each household and business in Saint John. InSight is also available online at www.saintjohn.ca
InSight has been printed with soy-based vegetable ink on Enviro 100 paper (made from 100% post consumer waste).
Please recycle InSight or pass it along when you are finished.
