Strategic/Sound Fiscal Management Plan for WL City Hall?

Earlier today - Williams Lake Mayor Kerry Cook responds to criticism from the ICBA or Independent Contractors and Businesses Association on their assertion that spending increased by 43% at WL City Hall between 2000-2008 (note - the CFIB or Can Federation of Independent Business made the same claim last year).  See Mayor Cook's response here

However - one quote in the story left me wondering...

Cook's council will be rolling out at a very strategic and sound fiscal management plan in the near future.

I hope that City of WL voters' will get to see that plan before they vote on November 19th on this City Council's performance or is this a case of "all talk, no action" like they were when they directed City Staff to come up with a Public Consultation Policy for Regulatory Bylaws in November of 2009 and nothing to date after a year and a half of giving that directive to their Staff and also when WL Council directed City Staff to include the role of Deputy Mayor in the Council Procedure Bylaw and after 2 years - nothing has been done
