Only three people showed up during the four hour presentation. The proposed ’09 operating budget was displayed on several boards and all Councilors were on hand to answer questions.

Lantz says the open house was thoroughly promoted. He says City Staff took every effort to make the public aware of the consultation.

Lantz says the low turnout isn’t unusual and most residents are probably satisfied with the budget.
