The first of three public input sessions regarding Kamloops' 2013 financial budget will be held tonight at the Interior Savings Centre from 7 to 10 p.m.

The focus will be geared towards the City of Kamloops Parks Recreation and Culture Department, responsible for beautifying, operating and maintaining parks, trails, sports and cultural facilities, as well as community halls. It also provides recreational programs, is responsible for natural resource areas, and maintains Kamloops' identity as the Tournament Capital.

This evening's presentation can be accessed here.

The public input sessions allow council to better understand community interests, concerns, and ideas and may affect future decisions by council regarding the budget.

Those who would prefer to take part in the meeting from the comfort of their own home may watch the live broadcast online and join in the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag: #kamloopsbudget.
