Oakville launches early 2012 budget consultation

Before Oakville tables its proposed 2012 budget in January, the Budget Committee wants to know how satisfied residents are with town programs and services offered – and how important they are to taxpayers.

“This pre-budget consultation exercise was designed to engage the public at the onset of the budget process,” explained Budget Committee Chair Councillor Tom Adams. “This input will help us better understand the public’s views on the services the town provides and how they should be funded as we pursue Council’s objective of keeping total property tax increases in-line with inflation.”

As part of the online consultation process, the town is seeking feedback from taxpayers about the top issues currently facing Oakville, the importance of town services, the level of satisfaction with programs and services, and the value received for their tax dollars.

Visit the 2012 Budget web page to access the questionnaire. To share additional comments or suggestions, residents can email budget2012@oakville.ca. All resident input will be shared with the Budget Committee as part of their budget deliberations.

The Town of Oakville will be hosting a series of public open houses, interactive online forums and Budget Committee meetings starting in January 2012. Visit the 2012 Budget web page for more information.
