Oshawa councillors are urging residents to “get involved” with the budget process at a virtual open house September 14.

Council hopes residents will share their budget priorities after the education session on the budget process.

“Your input into the 2022 Budget consultation can make a difference. We can all be a source of good ideas, the difference is when we choose to express them,” said Finance Committee Chair John Gray. “Please get involved.”

“I encourage all residents, property owners and business owners to take this opportunity to share your 2022 budget priorities for our city,” said Mayor Dan Carter. “The 2022 budget document establishes the framework for the City of Oshawa to make decisions for current and future infrastructure while balancing the service needs of the community.”
