Preparations for the Timmins 2018 municipal budget are already underway at the Timmins Chamber of Commerce.

The chamber is compiling local business feedback on what they think some of next year’s priorities should be. Manager of Policy Nick Stewart says the chamber takes in the feedback from a variety of sources.

Stewart says even though he couldn’t get into details, he says there seems to be a pattern of concerns that come up every year.

The chamber will present the business priorities at the September 20th council meeting.
