Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2021 Budget Consultation. Your input will be provided to City Council for their consideration.

The budget process is about balancing the delivery of services and programs (spending) with property taxes, fees and charges, and funds from other sources (revenues) to meet the needs of the community. Your input helps Council and the City find that balance and provide the best value for your tax dollars.

Answer our featured question

If the City were to look at service level reductions to lower the tax rate increase, which specific services do you think we should consider reducing? City Council wants to hear your suggestions. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

CLOSED: Thank you for your feedback. This discussion has now concluded.

I agree re. using ground covers in place of turf, pls. see below. I think, the city may consider suspending art grants for city art, especially the type that has been installed at the Rocky Point (there is a list of public art installed at the entry, and many people I know would not consider it art at all, unfortunately; if art cannot be easily identified as such without additional explanation, it's value as art is not great). Also, temporarily the city can do without or reduce the frequency of bog Sunday 2 pm concerts that most of the time are not of a great quality neither. I would also suggest to suspend all the traffic studies, and other studies that have been listed in the budget.

Signage is over done throughout Port Moody. Plantings ie. intersection of Noons Creek and Falcon is a waste. A nice clean ground cover in the triangle is all that is needed. Increases user fees is not required as more savey marketing and sales could close the gap.

-reduce the costs associated with city gardening, and park maintenance where possible-
-ie: shift to ground covers where grass is not needed---and therefore no mowing needed all the time-
-shift to natural species of plants, rather than high maintenance floral options etc.
-shift to species of plants that rebuild bee & butterfly populations- require no pesticides

Public Art - There are so many positive ways to spend public money than public art. Please stop this.
Heritage? What heritage! Not a good way to spend tax money. Work on making natural environment preservation to be our heritage.
