2007 Operating Budget schedule changed
  
The City of Toronto is advising residents and businesses that the 2007 operating budget schedule has been changed. Introduction of the operating budget which was previously scheduled for March 19 will now take place on March 26.

This change comes as the City considers financial impacts from the 2007-2008 budgets of the federal and provincial governments, to be delivered on March 19 and March 22 respectively.

"Toronto must first see how responsive the federal and provincial governments have been to the needs of people living in Canada’s largest cities," said Budget Committee Chair Shelley Carroll. "We are starting the City’s budget process once we have an idea of the big picture to ensure that we have allocated funds prudently and with due diligence."

The operating budget is a plan that pays for services such as police, fire, emergency medical services, the TTC, garbage collection and recycling, libraries, parks and more. Residents and businesses are encouraged to participate in the budget process.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of more than 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years Toronto has won more than 50 awards for quality and innovation in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
