- 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.
