Where is the mayor's budget policy letter stored online?
Cindy Cleghorn
01:21:57
What is the process for City Councilmembers to capture funds in the year's budget for their communities ? Is there a worksheet ? I'm interested in the detail process because communities are always put off that there's no $$ for already approved items such as new signals at intersections, storm drain improvements, etc.

the city clerk has always supplied council discretionary funds recaps
Kay Hartman
01:29:09
Garry, I wrote about the source of the discretionary funds I could find in last year's city council report. It sounds like Jay maybe has more.
Kay Hartman
01:31:59
Garry, some of them have to do with the assets in the council district so the discretionary funds are not the same from district-to-district.
Kay Hartman
01:33:15
Some can come from the outside. There is not one size fits all answer to this.
Garry Fordyce
01:33:23
Thank you Jay, Jacob and Kay 😉
