Surrey city hall has set up an online survey aimed at collecting residents’ priorities related to preparation of the 2024 city budget and is also hosting open houses toward that end.
Participants can take the online survey at surrey.ca/budget2024.
A City of Surrey press release indicates feedback on amenities, infrastructure and city services will be used to help staff prepare a draft budget to be reviewed by the city’s finance committee, with an aim to “keep property taxes and fees at a manageable level while also maintaining current service levels and addressing new funding priorities.”
“It is important that the public help shape how we balance our budget, ensuring that community priorities are reflected,” reads a statement attributed to Mayor Brenda Locke. “Input from our community is invaluable in planning for the new budget and I invite our residents and businesses to be part of our budget process.”
An open house will be held on Thursday, Oct. 5 at 137 Street Newton Business District near 73A Ave. from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
