It’s Your Business – 2018 Budget

The District updates its five-year financial plan each year to ensure the District’s finances are managed responsibly and to reflect the priorities identified by Council and the community.  The 2018-2022 Financial Plan provides funding requirements for 2018 and projections for 2019-2022 that indicate future requirements for the Municipality at a summary level.

Each Council, at the beginning of their term, adopts a comprehensive strategic plan that outlines their goals and objectives for the next four years.  This strategic plan is used to focus limited resources, with the goal of linking work and new projects to Council’s goals and objectives.


Community Participation

The 2018 Citizen Satisfaction Survey has now closed. The results of the survey will help the District identify residents’ satisfaction with municipal services and service levels and will be presented to Council at the September 13, 2017 Freestanding Committee of the Whole meeting.  View the 2018 Citizen Satisfaction Survey Results.

Council and staff welcome input on developing the budget and financial plan from all our stakeholders.  There are several opportunities for informal input other than the Survey, such as emailing  with your questions/comments.

A more formal opportunity for stakeholders to comment on the 2018 budget will be at the Community Budget Consultation meeting tentatively scheduled for Monday, November 20, 2017 starting at 7:00 pm in the Council Chambers.  Stay tuned as additional information will be posted.


Over the summer, Departments are reviewing and updating their 2018 budget numbers prior to the budget discussion meetings with Council.  New spending initiatives will also be brought forward for Council’s consideration.
