Meet with me to discuss the City’s financial crisis

As you are aware the City is in financial trouble. We need to look at ways to off set provincial downloading in order to continue to provide the level of service currently in place.

I would like to discuss the options available, and hear each respective community’s thoughts and suggestions on how to accomplish this goal. After much deliberation, it has been decided to hold one large ward wide meeting to discuss the city’s financial woes. The date selected is:

Tuesday September 25th, 2007

Fern Avenue Public School

28 Fern Avenue

7-9 pm

Please advise your friends and neighbours of this special evening. I encourage people to come out and to share your thoughts and ideas on the revenue tools, and to find out ways that you can help. Special thanks to the RMRA for providing the location and for hosting this important community meeting. A secondary date has also been discussed with the Westbend Community Association, for those who cannot make it on the 25th. The “Fiscal Fireside Chat” will be held on the following:Monday, September 17, 2007

6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

West Toronto Lawn Bowling Club, In the Baird Park Clubhouse

Keele Street & Humberside Avenue

Thank you to Hilary Bell for helping to organize this meeting. I look forward to seeing you all, and please contact me if you require any clarification.
