It’s Your Business – 2019 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 2019-2023 Financial Plan provides funding requirements for 2019 and projections for 2020-2023 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.

Council approves the District’s five-year financial plan each year.  The financial plan, or budget, details municipal spending which may increase the previous year’s budget.  Budgets affect property taxes collected.  If the District’s overall budget increases, property taxes may increase.
