Take the survey: How would you like to be involved in the 2017 budget?

BudgetWe want more people learning about the city’s budget and getting involved in how your tax dollars are spent and would ask that you take a 5 minute survey to let us know how you would prefer to engage in the budget process.

Do you like to engage online, by mail, with surveys and public meetings or through me as your ward councillor? The survey will be available until Aug. 12.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
