What drives our budget process?

  1. Council’s Strategic Plan articulates high level community goals & objectives.
  2. Our Staff Business Plan identifies measurable departmental tasks to meet Council’s Strategic Plan
  3. Our Financial Plan attaches the resources to achieve the Business Plan.

Here’s how we set our financial plan:

  • Staff got to work drafting their budgets in the summer of 2014.
  • Our Executive Leadership Team reviewed and prioritized service levels in September 2014.
  • We get your input February through March through our website & a town hall meeting set for March 5.
  • Council deliberates the budget from January to April 2015, and adopts the budget & tax rates by May 15, 2015.

What drives the budget?

The delivery of services drives the budget! The level and mix of services delivered is driven by a number of factors including:

  • Increased Growth/Diversity/Activity: more people of all ages and genders are demanding more services.
  • Reduced Senior Government Funding: more and more, local governments have to financially fend for themselves.
  • Legislation/Regulations: higher federal and provincial standards, stewardship and reporting increase the cost of doing business.
