Earlier today, AMO’s Executive Director Brian Rosborough presented the Association’s pre-budget submission to the Ontario Legislature’s Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs.

The submission illustrates that investing in municipalities is a good investment in the provincial economy. Municipal governments invest revenues of $50 billion annually in important public services and infrastructure. Municipalities are a major force in the economic well-being of Ontario and the country. Ontario and local governments must work in partnership to build strong and sustainable communities.

The pre-budget submission is available on the AMO website for your information and distribution. Members are encouraged to reinforce its themes in budget related discussions and submissions to provincial officials.
