I totally agree. Residents must continually help City Hall with setting priorities and City Hall must open the doors and provide a seat at the table for residents. The annual budget process typically begins in September and residents are not offered an opportunity to comment until February when most everything has been decided. We need to be included in the budget process from the beginning if we are ever going to build trust in local government. We should be afforded the same training and orientation that the new councillors will receive. 34% voter turnout on one day every four years is not the statistic that is worth measuring. The level of resident engagement on a day to day basis is far more valuable. Let's grow those statistics together over the next four years.
