Kirkland Lake’s Director of Corporate Services Keith Gorman says as the 2021 budget is being prepared, community engagement will be part of the process.
In a report to Council, Gorman states “The primary platform for information distribution will be the Municipal website, featuring a section dedicated to budget information and documentation.
In recognizing the complexity of budgeting and the broad range of services the Town is responsible for, a section entitled Budget Basics will be included to aid in understanding of steps, process and terminology.
The Town will also utilize a combination of media releases and social media postings to communicate with the public and direct the public to our website in an effort to increase engagement.”
Gorman goes on to say “In recent years, the Town has allowed for public engagement through question submission online and opportunities for delegation at public meetings.
