Ask Me About the Budget: Session 4 with Transportation Services and Corporate Services
Now is your chance to ask one or more of Edmonton’s senior managers about the City budget, and the programs and services the City provides.
Do you have questions about how the City manages the budget for transit, snow clearing, and its 311 service? Post your questions here, and on Monday, November 23, we’ll have senior managers from Transportation Services and Corporate Services answering those questions live during one in a series of “Ask Me About the Budget” sessions. This is the fourth in a series of five sessions on the budget.
