The Communications people at City Hall provide a service that amounts to a listing of events taking place during the week ahead. It is published every Thursday and usually consists of meeting notices. Members of Council sometimes place an event they are holding on the list.

The Gazette scans the list – there is a lot of stuff going on – and noticed that the list released yesterday had three notices for basically the same thing but at different times.

The meetings were intended for the residents of ward 6.

Ward 6 Councillor Angelo Bentivegna

We thought this was a clerical error and brought it to the attention of  Kwab Ako-Adjei, Director, Corporate Communications & Engagement who got back to us and confirmed that the Councillor’s office has scheduled three Zoom meetings to talk about the budget.

The events run for between an hour and an hour and a half.  It is a big budget with some critical issues.  The Mayor wants to keep the tax increase to less than 4%.

Angelo Bentivegna is a Councillor who watches the pennies and has grown to the point where he can disagree with the Mayor

The residents of ward 6, and any one else who wants to listen will get a chance to see how well their Councillor understands the budget he is going to vote on.
