Mayor opens his office door to the public

Nils Jensen is hosting the public for Saturday morning chats

As part of an effort to make municipal hall more accessible to the public, Nils Jensen has initiated mayor’s office hours.

The weekly sessions, slated for 10 a.m. to noon every Saturday, are designed to give Oak Bay residents an opportunity to speak with Jensen one on one.

The mayor said he’ll meet with anyone with issues they’d like to discuss. Although appointments aren’t necessary, they are preferred, Jensen said, to ensure people have a chance to see him.

The open door session is one of several initiatives Jensen is implementing to further engage residents.

In addition to the creation of new citizens’ advisory committees on the environment and Oak Bay’s active transportation plan, he has directed municipal staff to look at amending procedural bylaws to allow for an open-mic format for the public to address council at its Monday meetings.
