Your City Budget

The City of Brantford recognizes that municipal budget decisions have a profound impact on the daily lives of residents. From garbage collection, to public transit, to the safety of our neighbourhoods, budgets sit at the heart of residents’ quality of life and the community’s future development. 

Your say on the City’s 2020 budget

Meaningful and effective public engagement improves the quality of decisions made, facilitates citizen understanding of issues and government processes, fosters respect for the views of others, and increases support, understanding and ownership of decisions made. 

Our thanks to all who took time out to complete the 2020 Budget Priorities Public Survey and engaged with us on our budget blog and social media channels. View the results of the 2020 Budget Public Engagement Campaign that will provide insights and help inform decisions of the Estimates Committee as they meet to consider the City's proposed 2020 operating and capital budgets.
