Chelsea adopts $23M budget

For years Chelsea residents have called for more robust public consultations and it appears that the municipality is listening.

The $23 million 2022 budget Chelsea council adopted in December includes $10,000 to improve public consultations on environment and urbanism.

Mayor Pierre Guénard said that it’s important to find better ways of connecting with Chelsea residents on upcoming projects. He added that residents he spoke with while campaigning for mayor during the November 2021 municipal elections asked for more clear and consistent communication from the municipality and more opportunities for input regarding projects.

With several consultations coming down the pike this year – for the municipal master plan update, dock bylaw revision, zoning bylaw changes, and several actions plans – he said this was necessary to add into the budget during the 11th hour.
