Town of Milton Launches 2020 Budget Survey

2020 budget process begins with a telephone, and online survey

Milton is inviting residents and business owners to share their thoughts on the 2020 Capital and Operating Budgets by participating in the “Let’s Talk Budget” survey from May 28 to June 14, 2019.

Working with Nanos Research, a leading researcher and pollster, there are two ways to participate in the survey process. Respondents can complete the online survey at or participate in a phone survey by responding to calls from Nanos Research made to land lines and cell phones. Nanos phone number will display as 416-493-1965. The phone component will be a statistically relevant, random telephone survey.

“We encourage residents and business owners to provide their feedback through the budget survey to help identify priorities for Milton,” said Glen Cowan, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. “Community input is an essential part of the budget process and we want to hear what is important to Miltonians.”  The province of Ontario has asked municipalities to look for more efficiencies.

The budget is developed according to the following steps:

  • May-June 2019: Public consultation
  • Summer 2019: Council establishes budget guidelines including survey consideration
  • Fall 2019: Town staff develops the budget based on Council approved guidelines
    December 2019: Council deliberates and approves the budget
