St. Catharines City Hall

St. Catharines/Niagara – The Budget Standing Committee and City staff are calling out to residents to gather opinions and ideas about the 2019 operating budget.

Mayor Walter Sendzik, City Budget Standing Committee Chair Mat Siscoe, and City staff will answer questions about the 2019 draft operating budget during the annual Telephone Town Hall on Tuesday, Nov. 6, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Now in its fifth year, the Telephone Town Hall operates similar to a radio call-in show, except instead of individuals calling in, the City will call 30,000 households and ask residents to participate.

Residents will be randomly called. Anyone who wants to register in advance to participate, or request not to be called, can do so at or by calling Citizens First at 905.688.5600. Registration closes Nov. 5 at noon.

Budget Standing Committee meetings take place at City Hall and are open to the public. Residents can attend meetings in person or watch the online stream. Visit for more information.
