City Seeks Your Input on Services and Taxes
June 12, 2012
A City of Edmonton online survey is asking Edmontonians to identify their priorities for our city and what they think is a fair cost for civic services.
The results of the consultation on Your City, Your Services will be provided to City Council to consider in their discussions on the 2013 operating budget. Public input also will help guide how services are implemented in 2013.
Edmontonians can participate in the consultation until June 18, 2012.
The online consultation provides information about revenue sources that are used to pay for services and where taxes of a typical Edmonton household go. Edmontonians are asked to identify the City services that are important to them and for their perceptions about the amount paid through monthly taxes.
The City has developed a long-term strategic plan based on previous public input on 10-year goals for our community. Edmontonians are asked for feedback on the goals.
Due to the complex nature of information and questions, the survey is longer than usual, taking about 15 minutes to complete, but the City believes Edmontonians have a high level of knowledge about taxes and city budgets and can provide valuable input.
Aggregated results will be posted online at www.edmonton.ca/Budget by July 2012.
Edmontonians are also asked to join an ongoing Community Panel that will provide feedback on a range of city issues through the year.
