A schedule for Cobourg’s 2024 budget process was approved at Monday’s committee-of-the-whole council meeting.
The schedule approved for this budget (the first one developed under the auspices of the town’s new treasurer Adam Giddings) is:
Dec. 4 – A 5 p.m. public meeting for Community Grant presentations to council
Dec. 11 – A 5 p.m. public meeting for public budget submissions by members of the public
Dec. 12 and 14 – 1 p.m. meetings for divisional staff budget presentations
Jan. 9 – A full detailed budget review at the 9 a.m. Strategic Priorities and Policy Standing Committee meeting (by which time the standing-committee model of governance will have replaced the committee-of-the-whole model)
Dec. 14 is not part of the schedule, the date on which a draft budget will be made available to staff and public. Councillor Miriam Mutton asked that the motion be amended to refer to that date specifically so it would be reflected in the official record.
