By Chris Fonseca

I would like to thank everyone who came out to the Community BBQ and Fundraising Event held on Sept. 17th.  It is wonderful to see how the Ward 3 community has pulled together to assist the resident affected by the events of June 28th.

Thank you to MP Peter Fonseca for providing the hamburgers, cookies and volunteers, without his assistance this BBQ would not have been able to happen. Thank you to Marc Borg of Marc's No Frills at 925 Rathburn Rd. E for his donation and assistance with the food as well.  Thank you to Mark Rossi of Burnhamthorpe Fruit Market for his donation of Apples and thank you to East Side Mario's at 1488 Dundas St. E. for their donation of Pizza.

Have Your Say on Spending the City Budget

09/22/2016, 9:15am EDT
By Chris Fonseca

Get Involved

Mississauga's online budget allocator for the 2017 Budget is now available at mississauga.ca/budget.

The online budget allocator lets residents choose their preferred spending option on selected City services.

From roads and recreation programs to fire and emergency services, City services impact people’s lives every day. Decisions about City services drive the budget. Residents can use the allocator to test different spending options and then choose one for each service area. 

Results received from the allocator by November 4 will be shared with Budget Committee on November 28. The results will help inform the committee’s review of the 2017 proposed Business Plan and Budget.

“The budget allocator is a great way for residents to learn more about City services and their cost, and tell us about their priorities,” says Jeff Jackson, Director of Finance and Treasurer. “It is an opportunity to share their priorities in a way that gets people involved in their City’s business planning and budgeting process."

The service areas for the budget allocator for the 2017 Budget have been expanded from 10 to 12.
