Budget Conversation Continues with Second Survey
The City of Regina invites more input from residents as planning for the 2021 Budget continues with the launch of a second survey today. Based on the results of the first pre-budget survey in July, we are digging deeper to get more feedback about the services that are most important to residents and what that means for the upcoming budget.
Approximately 2,500 residents participated in the first survey – phase one of a planned multi-phase approach to this year’s budget consultation with residents. Respondents were asked to identify their top spending priorities for the City as well as the top considerations that should influence the City’s decision-making regarding the 2021 operating budget.
Roads, public safety, snow clearing and recreation were identified as the top spending priorities overall, with road being ranked in the top three by 69 per cent of respondents, followed closely by 66 per cent that selected public safety.
In finalizing the budget, respondents said they would like the City’s decision-making to be based on these top three considerations:
- Attracting new or supporting existing business
- Maintaining or increasing capital spending
- Reducing City spending
