SYDNEY, NS – Community stakeholder groups are invited to a special two-day budget consultation to be held in Council Chambers at the Civic Centre, 320 Esplanade, on March 18 and 19. Mayor Cecil Clarke, CBRM councillors and Interim CAO Marie Walsh will be in attendance.
The public budget consultation meetings are part of the CBRM's Reorganization Plan for Positive Change.
Mayor Cecil Clarke says he is looking forward to hearing from presenters about their priorities and discussing how, as a municipality, we can "do more with what we have".
"As a municipality we must focus our priorities for tax dollars and consider how those priorities create jobs or develop our economy," said Clarke. "The goal is to accomplish more with the resources we have."
The 12 district meetings wrapped up Thursday night in Glace Bay. Over 250 area residents participated in the budget meetings across the municipality.
