Red Deerians are invited to join The City at the Budget 2018 Open House, an event where residents can provide input to City Council and City administration on how they would prioritize their tax dollars.

“We are asking residents to provide input to ensure The City’s agenda reflects our community’s needs and priorities,” said Mayor Tara Veer. “The feedback received at this open house will help determine the 2018 operating and capital budgets for The City, and ultimately the future of Red Deer.”

The open house will be held at Festival Hall (4214 58 Street) on Wednesday, April 19.

Residents are invited to drop in between 4 and 7 p.m. to learn about City operations, strategic direction, budget, and have the opportunity to show us how they would prioritize different services The City offers.

“Members of Council and City staff will be on hand to hear your ideas on how you feel your tax dollar should be spent, and also see how their input last year helped us develop the 10 Year Capital Plan,” said City Manager, Craig Curtis. “The feedback we get at this event is extremely valuable.”

Open house attendees will also have the opportunity to tell staff what they like most and least about their neighbourhoods and how we can make them even better.
