Join us on November 30 for a Budget Town Hall.
Council is looking for input from the public before finalizing the draft 2018 Budget in early January. We need to hear from you!
What is a Town Hall?
A Town Hall is a public meeting where citizens can come and voice their opinion on certain topics, outside of a formal Council meeting.
The Town Hall will be held on Thursday, November 30 at 7 p.m. and will be an opportunity for you to ask questions about the draft budget, and provide your feedback. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with an open house portion until 7.
The meeting will be interactive and webcast live. You can attend and provide feedback in person at City Hall, or from the comfort of your own home. The Town Hall allows you to participate, whether or not you are able to attend the meeting in person. You can submit questions prior to the event, or in real-time during the event.
