Message from the Mayor - April 26

April 26, 2013

Dear Residents,

The 3rd Draft of the 2013 Budget is currently being prepared. This revision will reflect reductions, cuts and restructuring initiatives made by Council to date.

I acknowledge, cuts to the budget are tough and often unpopular but they are strategic decisions to protect the long term vision of community economic retention and growth.

Mayor, Council and Staff continue to work diligently with the coalition members and will be attending a meeting with the Deputy Minister of Finance on Monday, April 29th regarding the Domtar reassessment.

A public presentation will be held once the final 2013 Budget has been adopted, to address specific changes to municipal services.

Be sure to “like” us on Facebook to receive information on when and where this presentation will take place.

Sincerely,
