Chief Administrative Officer Tony Veneziano said the budget will be more accessible so that it can be better understood as well as invite community input.

“We are showing the public how we build our budget and the key components,” Veneziano said. “We want to ensure that the budget is understood, clear up any misconceptions and also answer any questions.”

He added that the budget has a zero per cent increase for the second consecutive year.

The board’s Budget Committee will also hold a public meeting on Oct. 5, 2017, at police headquarters, led by committee chair councillor Shelley Carroll, to consider the draft 2018 police budget.
