Budget 2013/14 – Get Involved!

budget
Mayor Savage and the new council are well into budget deliberations for the upcoming fiscal year.

It is important that residents are aware of the budget and the impact these discussions will have on things like our residential and commercial tax rates, parks, recreation, transit, transportation and libraries.

Information about the budget discussions will be posted regularly on this website.  I urge residents to contact me with their thoughts, concerns and ideas about the budget.

I want to hear from you!

Contact me to tell me what are your priorities –  what does HRM do well, where should we spend more, where can we cut?  What should we do about residential, commercial tax rates?

Let me know!

If you are not in my district, you should also contact your area councillor, contact info is here.
