Provide YOUR Input on 2017 City Budget and Priorities

if you missed my 2017 Budget Consultation on October 13, don’t worry!  It’s NOT too late to provide input on the City’s 2017 budget and priorities.  There are additional ways for you to provide feedback:

  • Consultations are being held in other locations across Winnipeg. SEE City of Winnipeg 2017 Budget.
  • The City of Winnipeg has launched Let’s Talk, an online forum to provide input into the 2017 budget. Until October 30, the public can provide online feedback on their budget priorities, preferences and ideas.

This is YOUR chance to express your concerns and provide input on YOUR city’s priorities.  The deadline is October 30, so don’t delay!


 

I am pleased to be co-hosting the Riel Area 2017 Budget Consultation in the South Winnipeg-St. Norbert Ward:

  • DATE:  Thursday, October 13, 2016
  • TIME:  6:00 to 8:30 p.m.
  • LOCATION:  Jonathan Toews Sportsplex, 1188 Dakota Street (ample free parking)

Mayor Bowman, Councillor Morantz (City’s Chair of Standing Policy Committee on Finance), Councillor Mayes and Councillor Allard will also be in attendance.

Residents and community groups of South Winnipeg–St Norbert, St. Boniface and St. Vital are all invited to provide insight and guidance on the City of Winnipeg’s 2017 Budget. The feedback collected will be used to shape the budget and assist in determining our city’s priorities in relation to revenues and expenditures.

If you are keen on understanding more about delivering City services, community trends, and performance measures considered in developing the budget, I recommend these two excellent reads:

  1. Community Trends and Performance Report:  An easy read, with many graphics to help you understand key information and City services
  2. 2016 City Services:  The chart below is an overview of how the average homeowner’s 2016 property taxes are allocated (click on the chart to increase its size):
