Final Kamloops budget meeting set

Following the workshop style budget sessions the City hosted last fall regarding the 2014 City budget, the final public budget meeting will take place on Feb 25.

Join City staff and Council at Interior Savings Centre from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. to discuss proposed additional requests to the budget.

While the discussions in the fall revolved around base service levels, this meeting will be focused on proposed additional items – such as an additional RCMP member, increased transit hours and a developmental study for the proposed performing arts centre.

After a brief overview by the Finance Department, residents will have a chance to discuss proposed additional requests to the budget with City Council and senior staff in a casual roundtable format.

The list of requests is available at Your feedback will be recorded and considered when Council makes its final decisions on the 2014 budget and tax rate.

Residents can follow along and contribute to the conversation on Twitter using #kamloopsbudget. Documents to support this budget meeting are viewable at

Your participation will influence the process. Mayor, Council and City managers will develop a broader understanding of community interests, concerns, and ideas. These factors are considered and weighed before final deliberation of the budget.
