Tillsonburg’s budget meetings began Nov. 30 with a three-and-a-half hour introductory virtual meeting.
“We’ll look forward to the presentations and guidance through the deliberations on this today,” said Mayor Stephen Molnar, “as led by the Interim Director of Finance and Corporate Treasurer.”
Molnar thanked the financial department, along with the town’s leadership team.
“On behalf of council, and I do believe the stakeholders across our community, thank you for the work to date, and we’ll look forward to listening, learning and deliberating in the future. So thank you.”
Sheena Pawliwec, interim director of Finance/Treasurer, provided an overview of the 2021 draft budget.
“Significant staff time and effort has been dedicated to this annual endeavour,” said Pawliwec, thanking staff involved in the budget preparations.
“2020 has proved to be an equivocal year, and this is expected to continue into 2021. Best estimates based on the known information and recent experience have been made with respect to the continued impacts, which will be highlighted in these following slides.”
