If you are tired of sitting on the sidelines and want to make a difference in the happenings of our city, here is a perfect opportunity for you to get involved! This month City Hall is opening its doors to any Bramptonians interested in joining a citizen advisory committee.
Brampton’s City Hall is undergoing budget talks for the new fiscal year and, in the spirit of public engagement, they have started a campaign called “Let’s Connect” with the goal of getting feedback from Bramptonians on how they would like the budget to be laid out.
