Council to Host Pre-Budget Public Consultation Meetings in November

October 25, 2019

NORTH GRENVILLE, ON - As part of the Municipality of North Grenville’s upcoming budget process, Council is inviting members of the public to attend pre-budget consultation meetings.

They will be held on Monday, November 4th at 6:30 PM at the North Grenville Public Library (1 Water St., Kemptville) and Thursday, November 14th at 2:00 PM in Community Halls B&C at the Municipal Centre (285 County Road 44, Kemptville).

“These meetings are an opportunity for residents and business leaders to informally discuss with Council their perspectives and priorities for 2020 and beyond as part of the pre-budget planning process,” said Mayor Nancy Peckford. “Sustainability will be key to our considerations,” Peckford added.    

Further, for the first time in North Grenville’s history, Council will embark upon a 4-year budget process to better anticipate expenditures and revenues over a multi-year budget cycle.  

”Multi-year budgeting, which is widely used in the private sector, will enable our community to identify and plan for important community investments, as well as appropriately forecast revenue projections as our community grows,” added Jim McManaman, Deputy Mayor.    

Official Budget presentations will be scheduled in December. Dates will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
