Budget and finance
Open government is about the relationship between you and your public servants. It’s about governing with people rather than at people. It’s about building trust and accountability between citizens, elected officials and municipal administration. It’s about modernizing our services with our citizens and businesses in mind. And it’s a long game. A game best played together.
City Hall was completed and open to the public in 2009. Roughly 300 employees moved into the state-of-the-art facility offering many City services in one convenient location.
Planning and development
Citizens, businesses, community groups are encouraged to participate in City planning decisions to discuss how new developments may affect neighbouring properties and the larger community.
