Get engaged – Calgarians talking about spending priorities
April 7, 2011
The Calgary Chamber of Commerce compiled Great Calgary as a way to identify key policy positions for consideration during the municipal election of 2010.
We are now using Great Calgary as our municipal government relations platform.
One thing that the Chamber called for was greater engagement in the budget process, as well as a review of core and discretionary spending.
The City has heard that call and introduced Our City, Our Budget, Our Future. It is an engagment process meant to have Calgarians tell City Council where they want their dollars spent – what is a priority to them and what is not.
I HIGHLY encourage all Calgarians to contribute to this conversation so we ensure that our tax dollars are spent in the areas that we feel are priorities. Don’t miss this opportunity.
