Budget Consultation Meetings to Begin
The Cape Breton Regional Municipality will begin holding public budget consultation meetings, starting on Sunday.
The meetings were introduced last year as part of the CBRM’s budget process.
They’ll be held in all 12 districts with the local councillor and Mayor Cecil Clarke in attendance at each meeting.
The consultations will also include public opinion survey questions and a session for community groups and organizations in council chambers on March 11.
The budget is expected to be finalized and ready for presentation to council by the end of March.
The first budget consultation meeting will take place this coming Sunday at 3:00 in the afternoon at the Sydney Mines fire hall.
A second Sunday meeting gets underway at 6:30 in the evening at the Royal Canadian Legion in North Sydney.
