Budget 2020 - Highlights

01/

On Sept 11,2012 I moved a motion to extend Handi-Transit services throughout the City, instead of denying service more than 500 meters from a bus stop. 2020's budget FINALLY scraps the 500 meter rule. Thanks to Independent Living Resource Centre and Patrick Stewart for their advocacy and to Mayor Brian Bowman for his support!

Pleased to announce that the 2020 City budget allocates new $240,000 to build tennis/ pickleball courts in Ron Duhamel Park in the heart of Sage Creek. A new amenity for this growing area in the St Vital ward!

Buried within the roads section of Budget 2020 is a big innovation for gravel lanes,with $350,000 per year re-allocated into “pulvimixing”, a kind of roto-tilling to upgrade ageing gravel lanes.

The City budget re-affirms the the City will fund $100,000 for the Norberry Glenlee Community Centre accessible play structure, matching ⁦Dan Vandal's federal funding. With the upcoming fundraiser on March 17th, we are good to go!

Proud that Budget 2020 provides four more years of City funding ($150k per year) to The University of Winnipeg for Inner City Work/Study. Bringing together suburban & inner-City youth to work in the community & study Truth & Reconciliation Calls to Action.
