Burlington looking at $4 Million Shortfall

The COVID pandemic has cost the city of Burlington $18 Million dollars in COVID related expenditures, lost fees and sharply reduced revenues, including transit. By drawing down reserves and about $9 Million in deferred expenditures the city had whittled the deficit down top $4 Million, but now it’s up to Queen’s Park and Ottawa says Mayor Marianne Meed Ward. The Province’s large urban municipalities, including Burlington issues a communique earlier this week calling for Ottawa to come to the aid of cities, noting that the fiscal year is more than half gone and the longer cities go without aid, the deeper will be the service cuts that will be necessary.
