The City’s 2010 operating budget isn’t finalized yet, and Mayor Bruce Lantz says there’s still plenty of time to ask questions and voice concerns.

Lantz discussed the upcoming budget consultation meeting on Moose FM’s Issues and Answers on Wednesday.

He says the meetings will be an ideal time for the public to learn more about the looming tax hike that the City is considering.

The City had to tighten its belt in spending last year, and put off what Lantz calls key capital infrastructure projects.

The consultation meetings will be held at the Enerplex on Monday, February 15th, at 5:00 p.m.

City Council is anticipating questions from the public, and will be armed with handouts and other information on what Lantz is calling "the public’s budget; not City Hall’s budget."
