Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Public input is an important part of the financial planning process and Council wishes to receive input from residents and businesses prior to Council budget deliberation meetings in the spring to determine the City of Parksville’s draft 2021 municipal budget and 2021-2025 financial plan.


ONLINE SURVEY

In 2019, Council identified their five strategic plan priority areas as housing, recreation, healthcare, economic development and community safety. We are once again asking residents to complete a short online survey to assist Council to better understand where residents would prioritize monies to be spent in 2021. The survey, available online until February 21, may be accessed from the City’s website and from this link. Paper copies of the survey are available from City Hall.


TAKE THE SURVEY


BUDGET DELIBERATION MEETINGS

Council meetings to discuss the budget will be scheduled; due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, in-person attendance at meetings are not allowed at this time. As we get closer to these scheduled meeting dates, we will provide residents with information about how they can participate in a safe manner.

As well as completing the online survey, residents may also contribute through these means:

  • Email comments and questions to council@parksville.ca. Please note comments will form part of the public record.
  • Meetings are webstreamed live on the City’s website and video from the meeting is also archived for viewing at another time.

If you are not familiar with the City’s budget information, the municipal budgets and financial plans are available here and on the City’s website.
