The City of Cranbrook will be one of the communities hosting public hearings discussing the 2019 BC Budget.
An all-party Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services announced consultations will happen in 14 communities.
British Columbians can provide their ideas for the next provincial budget by speaking with the committee in person or by telephone at a public hearing, by providing a written, audio or video submission, or by filling out an online survey. The committee must release its report by November 15th.
The public hearing in Cranbrook is set for September 25th.
“This consultation is a great opportunity for British Columbians to share their priorities for Budget 2019,” said Bob D’Eith, committee chair. “In renewing our consultation outreach, we are encouraging more British Columbians to participate, including Indigenous organizations, community-based groups and first-time participants.
“The committee appreciates hearing directly from British Columbians on a broad range of issues and topics,” said Dan Ashton, deputy chair. “We work collaboratively to review all the input and make recommendations for the upcoming provincial budget.”
Registration for the public hearings opens Friday, September 7th at 10 am Mountain Time on the committee’s website.
