Quesnel residents now have a chance to tell city council what they want to see out of the next budget.
The city has launched a survey aimed at identifying what ranks highest in citizen priorities.
“Budgets are a balancing act,” the email announcing the survey reads.
“The City must provide quality services and maintain ageing infrastructure with limited tax dollars.”
This is the first budget survey the city has done with their Let’s Connect program, which was launched earlier this year. Residents need to sign up at www.letsconnectquesnel.ca to fill the online version of the survey out.
A non-digital version of the survey is available at city hall. The survey will close on Jan. 14, 2022.
A question included in the survey asks if residents would be willing to pay one per cent more on their tax bill to increase support for seniors, Quesnel’s vulnerable population or both.
A one per cent increase would mean an additional $170,000 for the city.
