The 2018 portion of the City of London’s budget has been tabled as we work through the multi-year budget process.

Over the next six weeks, Council will work through this process with City Staff. A multi-year budget system allows us to forecast spending for four years at a time, rather than working through the lengthy process each year. Effectively, this means Council only needs to debate small portions of the overall budget that require attention rather than spending months dealing with the budget in its entirety.

We are the first city in Ontario to implement a multi-year budget system.

Also this week, we opened our seventh Seniors’ Satellite site. At the Trinity Seniors’ Satellite Centre and the six other sites across the city we are connecting senior citizens with meaningful programs in their own neighbourhoods.  

Here, seniors can connect with their peers and build a sense of community. This is just one more example of how we’re committed to building a better city for all.

As we look toward next week, we remember.

Please wear your poppy proudly as we honour those who fought for our freedoms. On November 11, there will be a ceremony at the Cenotaph in Victoria Park. Please join us if you can.
