2016 Pre-Budget Survey Results Released

The Municipality of North Grenville is pleased to announce the release of the results from the first ever pre-budget survey. The public engagement exercise was carried out in the fall of 2015 with surveys provided to residents and businesses via regular mail and available from the Municipal office as well as an option to complete the survey online In total, 638 responses were received.

“We are very pleased with the number of responses we received to the survey, especially considering this was a new initiative for us,” noted Mayor David Gordon. “We know the responses and comments provided were used to guide staff as they put together the first draft of the 2016 budget which will be presented on March 7.”

The survey consisted of a number of questions asking respondents to indicate whether they would like to see service levels reduced, maintained or enhanced in key Municipal service areas, keeping in mind that maintaining or enhancing service levels may result in an increase in taxes. Full results are available here.
