Mississauga residents are invited to participate in a telephone budget session on the proposed 2020 Budget with Mayor Bonnie Crombie and the City’s senior staff. Residents can choose from sessions taking place on October 2 (city-wide) and October 16 (Wards 1 and 2) and 17 (Wards 3 and 4). Staff from the Region of Peel will also participate in the city-wide session.
A random selection of residents will receive a telephone call in advance, with an invitation to participate in one of the upcoming sessions, and a second telephone call on the night of just before the session begins.
“Telephone budget sessions provide residents with the opportunity to ask a question and hear about the City’s proposed 2020 budget,” said Gary Kent, Commissioner of Corporate Services and Chief Financial Officer. “Our priority is balancing increasing costs with continuing to provide residents and businesses with the levels of service they need.”
Residents can also register to participate in the telephone budget sessions. In addition, the city-wide session will be available to watch on Facebook Live and online. Anyone who receives a call and does not wish to participate can simply hang up.
