Calgarians will be able to have their say when it comes to what gets trimmed from the city budget following the launch of online tools yesterday.

While council will begin making budget decisions in just over 10 days, Mayor Naheed Nenshi said it’s important that Calgarians make their voice heard.

“One thing I’m particularly excited about was the willingness of my council colleagues and administration to really engage the public over the next few weeks in this discussion,” he said.

“We have launched a website and a number of opportunities online for people to contribute their ideas on this adjustments.”

Ald. John Mar said with the possibility of cuts to emergency services on the table, it’s important for Calgarians to be involved in the discussion.

“We want to be as open and transparent as we can be,” he said.

Nenshi said Calgarians are welcome to attend the Nov. 29 council meeting and speak during the public hearing.

“I can guarantee to citizens that we’re going to listen to you in the short period of time we’ve got and we’re going to set priorities based on what’s important to you.”
