“The countdown to the launch of the City’s 2012 Operating & Capital Budget on November 28th is on. As we have done since the spring, residents of Toronto continue to organize in our neighbourhoods around cherished community services, programs and resources that we don’t want to see sold off or cut. There are many ways to raise your concerns about the service reductions, increased user fees and asset sales that are being considered to balance the 2012 budget — including participating in the city’s 2012 budget public hearing on December 8th at 9:30 am at City Hall.
“In this edition of the One Toronto newsletter you will find useful research showing how Toronto’s budget can be balanced without gutting services and asset sales. You will also find a list of important dates and events related to the 2012 budget process that you can get involved in.”
