“Your opinion matters. Please take the time to help shape the 2021 budget process by participating in this short survey (linked in the post below).” – Niagara Regional Chair Jim Bradley
An Invite to All Niagara Citizens from Niagara’s Regional Government
Posted September 25th, 2020 on Niagara At Large
Work to determine Niagara Region’s 2021 budget is underway. Through the budget process, choices are made to ensure the Region continues to provide services at a level that residents expect.
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit our community hard. Your Regional government wants to learn more about which municipal services you value and believe should remain a priority during this challenging time.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Region has maintained the majority of the programs and services that we offer to Niagara residents. This engagement exercise will focus on initiatives that fall outside of the Region’s core mandate.
To share your input, please complete an online survey by clicking on – <https://www.niagararegion.ca/government/budget/default.aspx> by Oct. 5, 2020.
Your input will help us determine which service adjustments Niagara Regional Council should consider during 2021 budget discussions starting this fall. Council will also use this feedback to inform their decisions on proposed adjustments.
“Niagara Region is committed to ensuring our residents receive high quality services. While the COVID-19 pandemic has presented its challenges, it is important that our residents and businesses know that their Regional government is here to support them in any way it can. Your opinion matters. Please take the time to help shape the 2021 budget process by participating in this short survey.” ~ Niagara Regional Chair Jim Bradley
A Footnote from Doug Draper at Niagara At Large –
I urge each and everyone of you out there to get involved in this process of setting budget priorities for our Niagara region’s future.
During these challenging and troubling times, as we work to survive this pandemic, as we determine how best we grow our communities in ways that protect and preserve what is left of our region’s biodiversity and natural heritage, and as we face a climate emergency that poses a present danger to the future of our living places and to all life on this planet, the priorities our governments set in coming through all of this for the better of all is critical.
So please get engaged in this budget priorities process – and that includes all of you younger people out there who will either benefit or suffer for decades to come from the decisions our governments make today.
