City services and staff will be on the move next spring.
During Tuesday’s meeting, city council approved a plan to move City services and staff into the Citi Plaza at 355 Wellington Street in April of 2017.
City officials estimate the move will provide a cost-savings of ‘hundreds of thousands of dollars’ over the five-year lease term.
Currently these services are spread out on different floors within the Market Tower building, so officials plan to move them all to one location on the second floor.
The services moving to Citi Plaza include Social Services, Parks and Recreation including the Spectrum service counter, Neighbourhood, Children’s and Fire Services, and supporting teams from Finance and Corporate Services.
