City of Parksville looks to residents for budget input

The City of Parksville invites residents to a public budget deliberation meeting next week. The special Committee of the Whole meeting on Thursday, April 18 at 5 p.m. at the civic centre is a chance to discuss the draft 2013 municipal budget currently before council.

Council is requesting input as an important part of the financial planning process. There are many ways for people to contribute, people can attend in person, watch and comment online at www.parksville.ca, e-mail communications@parksville.ca, comment at facebook.com/cityparksville or tweet @cityparksville. There will be a link to an open ended comment form on the city's website through April. All submitted comments will become part of the public record.

The results will be forwarded to the next budget meeting on May 1.

The draft 2013-2017 Provisional Financial Plan and other documents are on the website at www.parksville.ca. The numbers are preliminary, but director of finance Lucky Butterworth doesn't expect much change from 2012 in which residents paid $7.55 million in property taxes and businesses and light industry paid $2.42 million.
