Thunder Bay – Politics – The City of Thunder Bay will be hosting a new Pre-Budget Session where the public is invited to ask questions and discuss what the proposed Budget means in an informal setting prior to Council’s detailed review.
“City Council is interested in trying a new way to engage citizens in the budget process – one that is open, transparent and accessible,” said Councillor Frank Pullia, Chair of Administrative Services.
“Citizens will have a chance to learn about the proposed 2016 Budget and pose questions directly to City Administration,” said Rob Colquhoun, Acting General Manager of Corporate Services and Long Term Care.
The Pre-Budget Session will take place from 6:30 – 9 pm on Thursday, Feb. 4, at the Thunder Bay 55 Plus Centre Auditorium. A brief presentation on the Proposed 2016 Budget will take place at 6:30 pm, followed by an opportunity to visit interactive stations with City Departments.
