La Ville de Hawkesbury a tenu sa première consultation publique concernant le budget 2019. L’administration a présenté les défis et les questions à aborder au cours des procédures budgétaires, tandis que les membres de la communauté ont fait part de leurs réflexions sur la façon dont l’argent devrait être dépensé, ce qui comprenait principalement divers projets communautaires.

Hawkesbury has also made some significant infrastructure investments over the last couple of years and will have to continue investing to upgrade and replace old infrastructure. This is another budgetary matter to be addressed, through grants and other means. After the Town made its general pres- entation, community members took to the podium to share some of their priorities for the 2019 budget. Most of those who spoke out would like to see more investment towards community projects, such as youth projects, the beautification of the waterfront on Chenail Island, and reparations to the fence on Chenail Boulevard. Mayor Jeanne Charlebois would also like to see at least $5000 of the recreation budget allocated to funding a project, organized by the Town, giving youth the chance to put on talent shows and concerts for the community.
