Community Invited to Help Shape City’s Operating and Capital Budgets

Published on: 2024/06/04 - in Releases

The community is invited to help shape the City of Kingston’s 2025 operating and capital budgets and to provide valuable feedback on future budget engagements.

“It is important for Kingstonians to be informed about how the City’s budget works and to have the opportunity to influence how their tax dollars are allocated,” says Desiree Kennedy, Chief Financial Officer and City Treasurer. “We encourage residents to provide input on what matters to them. This is your community and your budget, so make sure you have your say.”

Starting today, residents can visit Get Involved Kingston to complete a survey, and to share their ideas on the approach to future budget engagements. Staff are also planning in-person pop-ups this summer, including one at the Cataraqui Centre tomorrow, Saturday, June 1. City staff will be on site from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. to answer questions and gather feedback through interactive displays. Look for us on the lower level of the Cataraqui Centre – we’ll be waiting for you!

Watch the Get Involved Kingston project page to stay updated and for further details on how you can have your say.
