Last Chance to Have Your Say on Coquitlam’s 2018 Budget

by Michelle Frilund |

COQUITLAM, BC, Sept. 2​8, 2017 – Residents hoping to share their input on the City of Coquitlam’s 2018 budget have just a few days left to do so.

The interactive Citizen Budget tool has been available online since Sept. 1 at www.coquitlam.ca/budget. The easy-to-follow process takes about eight minutes or less and can be completed on both desktop and mobile devices.

The tool allows Coquitlam residents and businesses to provide important feedback, while also showing how each City service – and changes to funding those services – directly impacts their property tax bill.

The citizen-designed budget input is shared with Council and plays a key role in City decisions about services and funding levels in the upcoming budget.

Those who complete the survey can also share their budget on social media to encourage others to participate.

The online budget tool will be closed for input on Saturday, Sept. 30. Results will be presented to Council during the budget deliberations to be held in November 2017.
