MAYOR MEED WARD’S TAKE:
It’s great news that we’ll be able to provide this extra level of service and had been intending to go in this direction for a long time. One of the silver linings of the circumstances we find ourselves in with COVID-19 is that some of the digital plans we’ve had at the City that had previously been on a backburner are now front and centre as we look to new ways to adapt. We’re looking forward to offering this new level of service.
