Welcome to the March edition of ENEWS. As you know , Council has been heav ily into budgets since last November, currently sitting at a 3.1% increase h owever we have said very clearly that it needs to be closer to 2.5%. To date , C ouncil has found more than 35-40 mill ion in saving s to bring down the budget. In addition to Budget meetings, February was also busy with Committee Meetings, the grand opening of Waterdown’s Stacked restaurant, a Transit Roundtable event and more. There are many important updates to share with you this month, including a Let’s Talk Bullying Community Session, COVID-19 update from Hamilton Paramedic Service, free income tax clinic and more. Please join me for my Community Clean Up on Saturday March 28, 9:00 am – 11:00 am at Waterdown Memorial Park – cleaning equipment and garbage pickup at the park provided. Everyone is invited!
