Burnaby residents will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the City’s five-year financial plan this November, as the City moves to an advanced and more efficient financial planning process for 2022.
Burnaby City Council approved the new process earlier this summer, with the goal of making it easier for Burnaby residents to understand and provide feedback on the City’s five-year financial plan.
As part of the changes, an easy-to-understand Financial Plan Highlights document will be available on the City’s website in November, focusing on operating impacts which are responsible for the change in tax rates. This document will also highlight major capital projects which are funded from the City's reserve funds and reserves. Residents will be able to share their feedback from November 23 to December 10, 2021.
All public comments will be shared with Council prior to the adoption of the 2022-2026 Financial Plan in early 2022. Visit Burnaby.ca/FinancialPlan in November for more information on how to participate in the upcoming public engagement process.
