Burlington, Ont. – July 24, 2019 — Work to determine the City of Burlington’s 2020 budget is underway. Through the budget process, choices are made to ensure the City services provided to residents align with the priorities in Burlington’s 2018-2022 Strategic Work Plan: From Vision to Focus.
In planning the 2020 budget, the City also wants to hear from residents to learn more about how municipal services are valued and which ones are a priority for residents. To share input on which services matter, residents can complete an online survey at www.getinvolvedburlington.ca. All the feedback captured through the survey will be shared with Burlington City Council.
The survey will remain open until Sept. 20, 2019.
“Each year, the City of Burlington undergoes an annual budget process to create a budget that supports city operations and delivers the programs and services required to maintain the high quality of life we enjoy in our community. We look forward to hearing from residents about the services that are important to them as we begin planning the 2020 budget.” — Joan Ford, Director of Finance, City of Burlington
