City Budget

Setting the budget is the most important decision Council makes. The budget is much more than dollars and cents. It directly impacts you through your services and it’s a tool to realize the Community’s goals.

LET'S TALK BUDGET - 2018 PRE-BUDGET CONSULTATION

On Tuesday, Sept. 12, a Public Consultation was held where citizens were asked to share what is important to them. There were two brief presentations outlining what the budget is and explaining the budget process. A third presentation discussed potential changes to the Vacant Unit Rebate and Vacant/Excess Land Review. Following the presentations, citizens had the opportunity to visit City Department Stations and a Priorities Station,as well as a chance to ask questions and give input.
