2014 Budget Consultation

At the core of any successful budget process is community consultation and I have made a constant effort to find more effective way of involving residents in this process.

In the past two years I have held 3 public budget meetings to get feedback on this process. Due to busy schedules and accessibility issues, I also recognize that it is not always easy to attend a public meeting.

For this reason, I am organizing four upcoming opportunities to hear your feedback on the Toronto's 2014 city budget.

  1. Fill out the Online Survey and share what you are thinking about the 2014 budget.
  2. Participate in our Community Telephone Townhall: you won't even need to leave your house for this community meeting, where we will have a chance to hear public feedback I have received, get information from City Staff, and further discuss the 2013 budget. To join the discussion, please ensure we have your accurate phone number.
  3. Public Budget Meeting prior to Council: Council will vote on the 2014 City Budget on January 29th and 30th and prior to this important vote I want to hear your feedback. For this reason, I have organized my annual Ward 18 Budget 2014 Town Hall Meeting on January 9th, 2014 at Bloor Collegiate Institute to go over what feedback I have received and discuss the issues likely to come forward at Council official budget meeting.

This upcoming budget will be another opportunity to implement the vision that we have for where our City should going; about identifying not only the services we wish to have, but the principles on which we want our City to stand for.

I hope you will take the time to share your thoughts on how we can improve our city services and I look forward to discussing this with you.
