The City of Yellowknife has launched a pair of surveys and will host two open houses next week so that residents can participate in the 2017 budget process.
On Nov. 15 and Nov. 17, residents can share some of their ideas on city programs and services with staff between 12:00 and 1:30 p.m. and again between 7:00 and 8:30 p.m. following draft budget presentations at city hall.

Residents can also fill out a pair of surveys that can be found on the city’s website until Nov. 25. Results from those surveys will be updated as they’re completed starting Nov. 14.
“The city is continually looking at engaging as many residents and business owners as possible in our budget process,” said Mayor Mark Heyck in a statement.
“There are a variety of online and offline options available to accommodate people’s preferences. Public presentations to council are also welcome on Dec. 5.”
Budget deliberations will then take place between Dec. 6 and Dec. 8. Adoption of the 2017 budget is scheduled for Dec. 12.
