City Council releases 2011 Budget Calendar

 

Fort St. John City Council has released its 2011 Budget Calendar.

All meetings held are open to the public.

There are two Public Meetings scheduled for each of the Capital and Operating Budgets, during deliberations where the public can voice their concerns.

These meetings will allow Council to hear the opinions of citizens
of Fort St. John in regards to the Budget. These are scheduled early in the process to allow staff the opportunity to revise the Budget as a result of these meetings.

The City is seeking an earlier approval to allow for a longer construction season.
