Day two of budget presentations goes tonight.
Last night council heard from eight organizations including Vista Ridge, YMCA, Fort McMurray Tourism, Heritage Society, Regional Recreational Corporation, Helicopter Emergency Response Organization, Northern Alberta Athletic Association and the Wood Buffalo Regional Library.
Tonight, administration will get their turn to present to council as many of the municipality’s departments will discuss their budget request. Presentations from Planning and Development, Economic Development and the Regional Emergency Services, to name a few.
The public will also get their first opportunity to talk directly to council, venting their concerns, opinions or approvals. Delegates will be able to speak after the 2017 Operating Budget.
The meeting will start at 5 p.m. with delegates slated to speak around 5:15 p.m. Presentations will start after the public gets their chance to talk.
