Mayor Lyn Hall and members of council will be hosting two information sessions in November, providing opportunities for residents to connect with the mayor and council in person, receive information about city initiatives, and ask questions of staff and elected officials.
Both events will include a presentation about current city initiatives, a question and answer session facilitated by the mayor, an opportunity for residents to submit requests for service, and information about how to provide feedback on budget priorities.
The sessions will be held in the Bob Harkins Branch of the Prince George Public Library:
“We have held Talktober neighbourhood conversations for the past two years but much of our outreach this October was focused on the referendum, providing information about the Four Seasons Leisure Pool and Fire Hall #1,” said Hall, in a press release. “Now that the referendum is over, we’re keen to host these events for residents to connect with us in-person, on any topic.”
In addition to the public events at the Library later this month, the city is also providing opportunities for residents to provide feedback on budget priorities. “Citizen Budget” is an online budget simulator that allows residents to adjust the funding allocations to various city functions and services, and see what the effect would be on their personal property taxes: http://princegeorge.citizenbudget.com/
