St. Catharines Mayor Walter Sendzik, Coun. Mat Siscoe, chair of the Budget Standing Committee, and City staff will answer questions about the 2017 operating budget during a telephone town hall Wednesday, Jan. 11 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The telephone town hall will operate similar to a radio call-in show, except instead of individuals calling in 30,000 residents will be called at home and asked to participate. Residents will be randomly chosen to participate, but those residents who want to ensure their participation can register in advance at http://www.stcatharines.ca/budgettalk or by calling 905.688.5600.

Advance registration closes Tuesday, Jan. 10 at noon.

The Budget Standing Committee will also meet residents at two open houses to discuss priorities and answer questions regarding the 2017 operating budget –

  • Tuesday, Jan. 10, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. St. Catharines Kiwanis Aquatics Centre, Irene Locke Room
  • Thursday, Jan. 12, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre, Sean Jackson Room
