About 130 people came together at city hall to talk about affordable transit, social services and safe transportation, on Oct. 13, as part of the public consultations taking place around the city's 2017 budget.
The event, which featured short presentations and then time for groups to brainstorm on specific issues before the room regrouped and shared ideas, was hosted by the city’s five urban councillors: Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Tobi Nussbaum, Somerset Coun. Catherine McKenney, Kitchissippi Coun. Jeff Leiper and Capital Coun. David Chernushenko.http://www.ottawacommunitynews.com/news-story/6911359-urban-area-budget-consultation-draws-130-participants/
