Share your budget priorities
Community members are invited to share their 2022 City budget priorities online on Connect Oshawa.
Community members who prefer to share their feedback on paper are asked to please call Service Oshawa at 905-436-3311 during regular business hours (between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday) to request a paper feedback form.
Feedback will be received until noon on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 and will be shared with City staff and Council as part of the 2022 City budget process. All individual responses will be anonymous and will only be used to summarize overall feedback received from the public.
“I encourage all residents, property owners and business owners to take this opportunity to share your 2022 budget priorities for our city,” said Mayor Dan Carter. “The 2022 budget document establishes the framework for the City of Oshawa to make decisions for current and future infrastructure while balancing the service needs of the community.”
“Your input into the 2022 Budget consultation can make a difference. We can all be a source of good ideas, the difference is when we choose to express them. Please get involved,” said Councillor John Gray, Chair of the Finance Committee.
