Pre-Budget Consultation & Meet Your City Services Night
West Carleton-March residents are invited to attend my 2020 Pre-Budget Consultation & Meet your City Services Night on Tuesday, October 22 at the Kinburn Community Centre, 3045 Kinburn Side Road. The evening will start at 6pm when residents can stop by tables displaying information on various services provided by the City of Ottawa. At 7pm, there will be short presentation on the City’s budget for 2020. We will be looking for feedback and suggestions that can be used in the drafting next year’s budget, before it’s tabled at Council on November 6.
If you cannot attend this consultation session, you can still provide your input by:
Attending other Councillor-led budget meetings over the coming weeks (visit the City’s website for consultation schedules)
Emailing feedback to email@example.com
