Share your budget input by Aug. 14

By Cecilia Nasmith

Northumberland County council and staff are seeking feedback from residents about areas of focus for the county’s current and long-term financial priorities through the 2020 Financial Framework Survey.

This is their opportunity to engage in the financial-planning process, as staff prepare a draft budget and updated long-term financial plan for council’s review and consideration in December.

This engagement is an annual exercise, the county press release stated, through which priorities that are identified direct the focus and the resources brought forward through each year's budget process.

County residents are invited to complete the survey – which is available through Aug. 14 – either on-line ( or in hard copy (at the county building, 555 Courthouse Rd., Cobourg).
