Let’s Talk: City of Kamloops Budget Meeting

Release date: 
November 14, 2017

Kamloops, BC – Each year, the City of Kamloops hosts public meetings to give citizens an overview of the City's budget and hear their comments and suggestions. By sharing your priorities and participating in the City’s budget process, you can help create a strong future for Kamloops.

The City wants to hear your ideas to plan for the future. Residents are invited to a round-table discussion with City staff and Councillors on Tuesday, November 21, 2017, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm, in the Valley First Lounge at Sandman Centre, to provide feedback and ideas to be considered in the supplemental budget and the Five-year Financial Plan.

The planning process is ongoing and may take multiple years to implement. The City wants to hear your ideas now so that staff can investigate to determine how those ideas can feasibly be incorporated into the Five-year Financial Plan. The supplemental budget list will be built from this meeting.

Input will be compiled and presented to Council, who will then prioritize the ideas. The top priorities will be costed out and presented back to Council in January for discussion on whether they should be added to the budget as part of the Five-year Financial Plan.

Background information is available at www.kamloops.ca/budget.

So let’s talk, Kamloops! Your participation will influence the process. The 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 and the Five-year Financial Plan.
