The Town of Ponoka is encouraging residents to fill out the Citizen Input Survey at and provide their input on the 2024 Budget.

After submitting a completed survey, citizens will be automatically entered to win a $100 utility bill credit or a three-month individual recreation pass.

The Citizen Input Survey invites residents to share their thoughts and suggestions on matters such as the top priorities they think are important for Town Council to consider in the upcoming budget and key factors they feel contribute to the quality of life in Ponoka. The Citizen Input Survey is available online as part of a virtual Budget Open House being hosted by the Town.

The online Open House provides residents the opportunity to learn more about the Budget planning process, how funds are allocated, and answers Frequently Asked Questions about the Budget.
