Budget meetings in November (FULL SCHEDULE)

Mayor and Council to provide update on development initiatives

SYDNEY, NS - Cape Breton Regional Municipality’s Mayor and Council are hosting budget meetings in November to begin planning for the 2016-17 budget. All residents are encouraged to attend.

Meetings are held in each of the 12 districts and are attended by Mayor Cecil Clarke, the local councillor and senior CBRM staff. This year’s meetings will begin with an update on economic development, downtown development initiatives and community improvement efforts.

The public budget meetings were initiated as part of the CBRM’s Reorganization Plan for Positive Change.

The November dates are earlier than in previous years due to better weather conditions. The full schedule is also available in the Citizen Handbook distributed to all households in CBRM. If you did not receive a copy of the Citizen Handbook, they are available for pick up at City Hall, 320 Esplanade Sydney.

If a meeting must be rescheduled, all cancellation and reschedule information will be available on the CBRM website at www.cbrm.ns.ca and the CBRM official Facebook and Twitter accounts. To see what district you live in, visit the CBRM's "Who is my councillor?" page at www.cbrm.ns.ca
