Let’s Talk: City of Kamloops 2016 Budget Meetings

Kamloops, B.C. Each year the City hosts public meetings regarding the City budget to give citizens an overview and hear their comments and suggestions.

The City wants to know what’s important to you. You’ll have an opportunity to discuss the budget with City staff and Councillors, as well as participate in a survey.

For convenience, the City is offering one daytime session and one evening session on Wednesday, November 18th, 2015:

  • 11:30 am to 2:00 pm at Parkside Lounge, Sandman Centre; and
  • 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm at McArthur Island Sports Centre.

Background information, as well as the survey, is available at www.kamloops.ca/2016budget. The survey results will be tabulated and reviewed by City staff and Council, and taken into consideration when Council makes its final decisions on the 2016 budget and tax rate.

Your participation will influence the process. Mayor, Council and City managers will develop a broader understanding of community interests, concerns, and ideas. These factors are considered and weighed before final deliberation of the budget.

So let’s talk. By sharing your priorities and participating in the City’s budget process, you can help create a strong future for our city.
