The City of Ottawa has put out a survey with general questions on the city budget engagement process. This is an opportunity to call for meaningful engagement and transparency in the budget process. The Peoples Official Plan Coalition has written a letter to Mayor Sutcliffe and City Council with recommendations to make the Budget 2024 process meaningful, transparent, participatory and productive.
We encourage you to fill out the city’s survey to ask for a budget process that Ottawans deserve. Consider sharing our letter in the open box at the end of the survey, either by pasting the link or the contents of the letter.” You can find POP’s letter at https://popottawa.ca/pop-follow-up-letter-on-ottawa-city-budget-process/ and the city survey at https://engage.ottawa.ca/city-budget-process/survey_tools/budget-process-survey
