Building a great city together Important communication included in Interim Tax Bill
Residents and businesses will receive an important communication about City services and how we pay for them in their Interim Tax bills, which started going out to property owners last week. The insert provides residents with information about the importance of City services and the City’s financial plan to preserve those services.

The tax bill insert is part of a broader public information campaign designed to inform residents on and engage them in the 2008 operating budget process.

Beginning on January 28, residents can visit for easy-to-understand information about this year’s budget. An outdoor advertising campaign will provide residents with information about City services and encourage them to visit the website. Newspaper ads in the coming weeks will invite residents to make a public presentation to the Budget Committee on February 5 at City Hall. Residents can also send a written presentation to Budget Committee or their local Councillor.

Toronto City Council will consider the recommended 2008 Operating Budget at its meetings on March 31 and April 1.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 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 70 awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
