Our City. Our Budget. Our Future. Adjustments 2013 & 2014

Six months ago, over 23,000 Calgarians shared their thoughts and ideas on The City of Calgary's 2012-2014 business plans and budgetsand now we'd like to check-in with you again.

To participate in Adjustments 2013 & 2014, from June 12–30, please
We're hoping to learn if your priorities have changed in the last six months, what (if anything) has shifted, and how Calgarians want to continue the conversation with The City on business planning and budgeting Adjustments.

Adjustments are an important aspect of multi-year business planning and budgeting and are designed to manage business plans and budget changes in a comprehensive, transparent and integrated manner while maintaining the direction and priorities established in the approved plans and budgets.

Based on an analysis of recent economic and financial projections for 2013 and 2014, no significant changes in revenue, service costs, or service demands are emerging. The forecasts used to develop the approved 2012-2014 business plans and budgets are holding true, so Administration does not foresee substantive adjustments to react to changes. However, it is anticipated that a limited number of changes may be needed.

As part of Adjustments, The City also wants to ensure that citizens have the opportunity to ask questions and has created an interactive microsite, www.calgary.ca/ourfuture. This site outlines what the Adjustments process is and is full of relevant information and links to more detailed documents on calagry.ca

The information gathered during this engagement will be shared with Administration as they are creating their proposed Adjustments to the 2012 – 2014 business plans and budgets. The City will also share the results gathered during the engagement on this site in mid-July.

Once the proposed adjustments documents are complete The City will present Administration’s proposed adjustments on this site in November and will continue the conversation with you throughout this entire process.

Share with The City what you are thinking! It is only by understanding Calgarians’ priorities that The City can ensure the services it provides are the services citizens value and need.
