Infrastructure Paper Released

The pressures on Municipal Infrastructure are coming from a number of sources. Existing policies have not kept pace with balancing increasing service demands and the financial  limitations to maintain service levels over the long term. Aside from some “bottlenecks”, our infrastructure seems to have sufficient capacity to sustain us for the foreseeable future. However, there needs to be significant investment both financially and in new policy and development models to ensure that we can maintain a sustainable service model for the future.

    the following note appears:
    “This document is formatted with consideration for digital reading. Readers should note that hyperlinks have been placed within the document for easy navigation. For example, clicking on a section in the Table of Contents will take the reader to that section in the document.”

    Neither of these claims is true.

    (1) “This document is formatted with consideration for digital reading.”
    Not true. When I enlarge the type (as I need to do for comfortable digital reading), the words do not wrap as they should. Instead, the words run off my screen — not what I would call “formatted with consideration”.

    (2) “…hyperlinks have been placed within the document for easy navigation…”
    Problem is — these links do not work. When I click on one of these “navigation” links in the usual way, nothing happens. Nothing whatever.

    Hi Ivan,
    I’ll look into that and see about making a fix… or removing that claim (if I can’t fix it).

    For those who are curious, pressing “Ctrl + 4” in Adobe Reader will make text reflow so it’s not cut off the side of the screen when you zoom in. I’ve learned that our documents aren’t perfectly formatted for this because it doesn’t work on pages with images and it also seems to ruin tables. This is something we can work on to improve the accessibility of our documents.
