Why isn't the City of St. Catharines properly enforcing contracts?

Why isn't the City of St. Catharines enforcing Municipal Contracts such as tree maintenance. Given the problems with mature trees coupled with the new normal of more frequent severe wind storms, trees must be trimmed so as to ensure both reliable electrical service and safety to the community.

I am fed up with the talk of the new arena, also known as McMullan's Folly, the City should be taking care of the existing physical infrastructure.

There is currently an inadequate and possibly life threatening level of service in place. I would hope that if there is a serious event that someone be held accountable under the full force of the law - when warranted, the Ministry of Labour can put negligent contractor's and employers in prison.
