Government to conduct province-wide budget consultations


The Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services will be conducting province-wide budget consultations this fall.

The public hearings will begin September 15, once the 2012 Budget Consultation Paper has been received by the committee.

The process will include stops in 13 communities, as well as two video-conferences in eight more areas.

While the committee won't be making the trip to Fort St. John, there will be a hearing by video-conference on October 5.

Residents are encouraged to participate by submitting a written statement, responding to a survey or submitting audio or video files on their website.

The deadline for public input is Friday, October 14.

To register, contact committee staff by phone at 1-877-428-8337, or by e-mail atfinancecommittee@leg.bc.ca.

Registration opens at 1:00 p.m. today, September 8.
