Prince George city council could see up to $7.6 million in annual savings or revenue as a result of the core services review.
KPMG, the consultants tasked with carrying out the three-month review, identified 38 cost-saving or efficiency opportunities for council's consideration in their draft final report to the select committee on a core services review.
They also identified a minimum annual savings of $3.8 million in their report which groups the opportunities into themes: land (including Pine Valley Golf Course); organization and governance; grants, leases and tax exemptions; bylaw enforcement; recreational fees; Four Seasons Leisure Pool; Civic Centre; fire and rescue services; and public works.
Among the recommendations for council to consider, narrowed down from the initial 193 suggestions, include increasing user fees for for ice time, swimming pools and sports fields, increasing fines for bylaw infractions, investigating integrating fire dispatch with 911 or with paramedics and selling city-owned commercial properties downtown.
Controversial suggestions such as finding a third-party operator for the Four Seasons Pool and Civic Centre remain on the list, as does shutting down the Pine Valley Golf Course and selling the land.
The select committee, which consists of Mayor Shari Green and councillors Cameron Stolz, Albert Koehler and Frank Everitt, will review the final report this afternoon.
