On Monday the city is launching an online survey with 16 questions on the city s website. Pappas says it s an easy and informal way to engage the public.
Peterborough city council is changing the way it goes about making decisions for the 2020 budget process.
The big push is to engage with people from across the city and give their feedback on the community’s priorities, without having the pressure of showing up to council meetings.
“It’s very difficult to get up in front of 11 Councillors and staff and cameras and all that and speak, so what we’re trying to do here is make it easy for people to have their say in the budget process,” said finance committee chair Dean Pappas.
