The City of Penticton is preparing to release the draft 2019-2023 financial plan and 2019 business plans for community input.

Both drafts will be available on and on Feb. 14, with an overview of the plans being provided Feb. 19 at the regular council meeting.

“This year’s financial plan will reflect the priorities of the new council that were discussed during their campaigns, as well as address operational needs such as asset renewal,” said chief financial officer Jim Bauer in a release. “We look forward to hearing from residents if the direction aligns with their expectations.”

Residents will have the opportunity to discuss the plans and share their feedback on Feb. 20 and 21. Feedback will also be accepted at council at the start of the budget deliberations between Feb. 26 and 28.

City staff will incorporate the feedback received during the engagement activities in the financial plan with the goal of reviewing the draft bylaw with council on March 19.
