Departments: Matters Pertaining to SARM
Whereas SARM has a federal lobbyist to lobby for issues that are important to rural Saskatchewan; and
Whereas support for the SARM federal lobbyist is a voluntary contribution; and
Whereas not all municipalities contribute but all benefit from the successful efforts that are achieved; and
Whereas with full participation by all rural municipalities, the federal lobbyist could be more effective;
Be it Resolved that SARM make the federal lobbyist contribution part of the membership fee.
Response from SARM:
Effective 2010 the cost of the federal lobbyist will be part of the annual budget of SARM.
