Staff presented Mississauga’s Budget Committee with an overview of the proposed 2017 Business Plan and Budget as deliberations got underway.
From September 22 to November 4, the City sought input from residents on the proposed 2017 Business Plan and Budget. This was done via the online budget allocator tool, three telephone budget sessions and student outreach to four Mississauga schools. As a result, 25,931 people provided input on the City’s proposed 2017 budget.
Results from the online budget allocator show that people identified traffic management most often as the City service to receive increased spending. This was followed by winter road maintenance. Many comments showed support for the opportunity to provide feedback and for finding efficiencies and cost savings. The full report on 2017 budget engagement is available online as part of the Budget Committee meeting agenda.
