Hey New West residents, have you ever wondered how the City’s finances work – where the money comes from, and how it gets spent across various services and departments? Well, this is your chance to learn all about the basics of the City budget process and why your input is important as we start preparing the 2021 budget.
These are some of the topics we’ll cover in this interactive webinar:
- What is the City budget and how does it apply to me as a resident?
- How is the budget developed?
- Where does the City’s money come from?
- What’s the connection between the budget and property taxes?
We’ll also share some information about how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted City finances, work plans and how it may influence the 2021 budget.
If you’re a resident, property owner or business operator in New Westminster, please join us. The webinar will include a presentation and a live Q&A session with participants. We’d love to have your input as we prepare for the 2021 budget process.
