On Tuesday, Sept. 27, a Public Consultation was held where citizens were asked to share what is important to them. There were two brief presentations outlining what the budget is and explaining the budget process. Following the presentations, citizens had the opportunity to visit City Department Stations and a Priorities Station, as well as a chance to ask questions and give input.

Setting the budget is the most important decision Council makes. The budget is much more than dollars and cents. It directly impacts you through your services and it’s a tool to realize the Community’s goals.

Every two years, the City conducts a citizen survey to gather input about the services provided by the City. The data collected is used for budget considerations, to inform strategic planning, and to assist in evaluating the services provided to residents.
