Budget Talk - Telephone Town Hall and Open Houses

Let's talk budget!

We want to hear from you about the draft 2020 Operating Budget. You can also email questions about the Operating Budget to budget@stcatharines.ca

Telephone Town Hall

Telephone Town Hall IconThe City's Telephone Town Hall took place Tuesday, Oct. 22, from 7 to 8 p.m. Did you miss the call? 

The full event recording is now available.

The polling questions results are also available. 

The telephone town hall gave residents a chance to give feedback and learn more about the budget, all from the comfort of their home. 

Telephone Town Hall was similar to a radio call-in show, except instead of individuals calling in, we called you.

The City randomly called 30,000 households and asked residents if they wanted to participate.

Residents who wished to guarantee their participation or request not to be called, could do so by completing our telephone town hall RSVP form or by calling 905.688.5600. Those looking to RSVP were asked to do so by Monday, Oct. 21, at noon.
