Political scientist Joe Garcea and the Star Phoenix's Gerry Klein, with their thoughts changing the governance model at city hall.

It's significant but most people won't notice. City council is changing the way it operates. Rapid growth in the past decade is forcing council and administration To focus more on the big picture issues. So council is looking at some major changes. Day to day issues will be dealt with by committees. And council will hold two meetings, once a month. Joe Garcea is a political scientist at the University of Saskatchewan. He joined Dan Kerslake by phone. Gerry Klein of the Star Phoenix has been watching city hall for many years. Saskatoon Morning invited him in to share his thoughts on changing the governance model at city hall.
