Topic Selections Discussion - All  
Capital Investment Budget Process  
What is the process for new projects to get on the CIB docket?  
How are projects prioritized amongst different city departments and amongst  
community applications? How do we ensure fairness in project selection?  
Do we track CIB investment across the city? If so, do we know if the $ is equally  
spread across wards?  
How are the annual allocations determined? Do we evaluate those to make sure they  
are the right amounts?  
Salary study of staff  
Could job be scoped to align with funding available?  
The job could be focused on a specific department rather than citywide.  
Is the city paying in line with other jurisdictions of similar size?  
What is the salary review of frontline staff vs. management staff?
