Message from the President
Provincial budget is a busy time for AUMA. In the weeks and days – and even hours – leading up to the release of the budget, we had many meetings, discussions, and conversations with the department and elected officials about the value of MSI and the importance of maintaining municipal infrastructure.
As early as last November, we knew from the Premier and the Minister of Municipal Affairs there were going to be some cuts to the budget, and we had to mobilize our advocacy efforts for a predictable and stable revenue model. Once Budget 2018 – A recovery built to last
was released on March 22, 2018
, the second phase of our work began, as AUMA staff spent hours scrutinizing the budget, the ministry business plans, and the Government Responses to AUMA’s 20 Questions to determine the impacts to our members.
