Hell to Pay

 

Ron Bolin: August 28, 2012

At its meeting of August 27, 2012, our Nanaimo City Council was notified by Staff of the process for the preparation of the 2013-2017 Financial Plan.  Here is what was said in the agenda about the process:

“City staff have been installing a new budgeting program, which means that the preparation of the 2013- 2017 Financial Plan will be completed slightly later than usual. The current plan is for the staff review to be done in November, with the budget to be presented to Council at the Committee of the Whole meeting on 2012-NOV-26.

Thereafter, there will be an opportunity at each Council Meeting and Committee of the Whole Meeting for Council get information, discuss the budget and make amendments. Staff will bring forward a bylaw to adopt the financial plan in January.
