Paperless City Council

Sustainability is no longer something the City of Wetaskiwin only thinks about—it is something we strive for in everything we do.

The average length of a Wetaskiwin council agenda is 100 pages. Print one agenda for every member of Council and senior management/staff—not including the press or attending public—and already over 1000 pages of paper have been used.

To reduce our paper consumption, each member of council was assigned an iPad to use at the council meetings. This action alone has enabled the City to save nearly 5000 sheets of paper every month.
