Saskatoon mayoral candidate Tom Wolf announced part one of his campaign platform today (Tues).
Infrastructure is the focus, as he outlined his plans for a proposed North Bridge, a new project funding formula, road maintenance, reserve funds, and life-cycle costing.
Wolf says that his platform is grounded in the need to address the realities of the city's growth.
If elected, he says he will return the North Bridge plan to city engineers and ask for a solution that allows traffic through Saskatoon to link easily with the bridge and to reduce the pressure on Circle Drive North.
His platform also included proposing a new funding formula designed to meet infrastructure needs on both the municipal and provincial level.
Wolf says if elected, he will propose a 20 year infrastructure financing plan to the province in order to complete the city's necessary projects in the future.
He also announced he would increase funding for road maintenance and repair but did not say where the money would come from.
Wolf is an agriculture researcher and is up against Incumbent Don Atchison and consultant Clay Mazurkewich for the Civic Election on October 24th.
