Councillor Adams appointed chair of 2012 Budget Committee

Oakville Budget Committee yesterday selected Town and Regional Councillor Tom Adams as the chair of the 2012 Budget Committee.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to continue chairing the town’s Budget Committee,” said Councillor Adams. “As we have done in previous years, this year’s budgetary process will engage the public to ensure we continue to deliver high quality programs and services that are valued by the community and are fiscally responsible.”

This is Councillor Adams’ fourth year as budget chair. He holds an MBA from McMaster University and is a former senior risk manager to one of Canada’s major financial institutions.

“Council’s budget process is in the best hands possible with the MBA skill set and banking experience of Councillor Adams,” Mayor Rob Burton said.

As its first order of business, the Budget Committee received the 2012 Budget Directions and 2013 and 2014 Budget Forecast.

The 2012 budget documents will be released in early November. Staff will be working on their department budgets over the summer. Council’s 2011-2014 Strategic Plan and results from the 2011 Citizen Survey will help guide this process.

The Budget Committee will hold both formal and informal public consultation meetings this fall. The 2012 Budget is scheduled to be approved by Council in December 2011. Visit the Council Calendar for up-to-date meeting schedules.
