I would also request that Staff take up this issue with Kevin and
let us know if we are just wasting our time. If a consensus or a

increase funding then perhaps we can all be saved from spending more
time on an already lost cause.
Also, since Denise informed us that the policy allowed for deflection
of funds from council members to others in the constituency that the
constituency thought should travel, need based analysis by the
constituencies and budget splitting (i.e. some get travel, some get
room/per-diem) might solve the problem without further budget or rancor.
As discussed in the meting yesterday, I have sent a message to Olga
and asked her, as chair of the Travel DT, to have the DT take a look
and make a proposal for how to handle this.
