Reminder: Invitation to the Community - 2022 Budget Virtual Town Hall Session This Evening
Nov 24, 2021
Residents are invited to a virtual Town Hall session this evening from 6 to 8 p.m. to learn more about the proposed 2022 Municipal Budget.
Mayor Brian Bigger, Ward 7 Councillor Mike Jakubo, Chair of the Finance and Administration Committee, Ward 9 Councillor Deb McIntosh, Vice-Chair of the Finance and Administration Committee, and key senior and Budget team staff will be in attendance.
Those who attend the session will have the opportunity to post questions during the event through the Q&A chat on the Zoom platform.
The proposed Budget was tabled on November 2 for City Council to consider as part of Budget deliberations. The goal was to prepare a plan that delivers public services that meet the community’s highest priority needs, at a cost that includes no more than a 3 per cent property tax increase over 2021. Overall, a 3.2 per cent property tax change is being presented as the result of a late addition to the Greater Sudbury Police Service Budget. Staff continue to look for options that will ensure the direction for no more than a 3 per cent property tax change is fulfilled.
Budget deliberations are scheduled for November 29 and 30 and December 1 by the Finance and Administration Committee, with the operating and capital budgets anticipated to be approved by City Council on December 14.
