Just a little over 100 days after being elected, Brampton City Council will vote on its first budget this week.

City staff presented the proposed budget to council in February, and since then, Mayor Patrick Brown and councillors have been conducting telephone, and in-person town halls to get feedback from the public.

Brampton residents will have their last chance to offer feedback to council this week on budget-related issues. The public can delegate to council on March 19 and 20 from 5 to 7 p.m. Initially budget deliberations were scheduled for March 18 at 9:30 a.m., but at the request of Councillor Pat Fortini, suggested moving the meetings to a timeframe that would allow more residents to participate.

If needed, the city has also earmarked March 25 from 9:30 a.m. to 21 p.m. and Tuesday, March 26 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. as overflow dates for the deliberations.

Brampton Council is slated to make a decision on the budget in a special council meeting on March 27 from 7 to 10 p.m. All meetings will be held in the council chambers located on the 4th floor of city hall. Meetings will also be live-streamed on the City’s website.
