AUMA President requests meeting with Premier
During the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce luncheon January 24, 2019, AUMA President Barry Morishita asked the Premier for a meeting to help solve the impasse on municipal funding.
AUMA wants a framework similar to what was provided to the City of Edmonton and the City of Calgary through the City Charters Fiscal Framework Act. This framework should offer adequate levels of funding, increased predictability for multi-year financial planning, and long-term growth of the funding in alignment with Alberta’s economy.
We are pleased to report a meeting has since been set up and we look forward to discussions on this very important matter.
