City Budget 2019

On February 6, the City tabled its annual draft budget. Over the next few weeks, each Committee will consider its piece of the budget, hear from individuals and organizations, and make recommendations back to Council as to what the budget should include.

I am very pleased that the 2019 draft budget will now include a minimum of $15 million in capital funding plus any additional funding we receive from the federal government for new refugee settlement. This funding will all go directly to building new affordable housing units.

Other priorities we need to address include winter sidewalk maintenance and improving OC Transpo services.
