KS – September 14, 2017


 

Week in Review

 

2018 Budget Consultation

The 2018 Budget webpage was recently launched on Ottawa.ca. Under the ‘Have Your Say’ area, residents can find information on how to get involved and provide feedback on the budget.

Budget Planning tool- Available for the second year, this interactive software tool provides residents with the opportunity to play the role of a politician or administrator by determining how they would prioritize budget funding for each category. To show the impact of their decisions, it will also show how their choices would affect the budget rate and their individual property taxes.

The budget simulator tool will remain live until the budget is tabled on November 8th.

Save the Date – there will be a joint west end Budget Consultation meeting held at the Kanata Recreation Complex (Hall A) on Thursday October 5th (6:30pm).  Come out and share your thoughts on the 2018 Budget with your Councillor and City Finance staff.
