The first Committee of the Whole Budget meeting for the Columbia Shuswap Regional District's Five Year Financial Plan offers a chance for the public to address the board about spending priorities.
The first meeting was held Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at 9:30 AM at the CSRD office, located at 555 Harbourfront Drive, Salmon Arm.
A second meeting is set for Wednesday, February 26, 2020 also at 9:30 AM at the CSRD office.
At both of these meetings, interested members of the public are invited to visit the CSRD Boardroom for an opportunity to speak directly to the Manager, Financial Services and the Board of Directors regarding the proposed Five Year (2020-2024) Financial Plan.
At the end of the budget presentation, the public will be given a chance to speak and ask questions about any of the CSRD's projects, programs or tax spending.
All Directors get a draft budget binder with information to help them make spending decisions. The contents of that binder are also available to the public online.
You can go through our virtual budget binder and view the exact same information which is collected for our Directors to use when making decisions about where to spend your tax dollars.
