2018 Budget Process

Budgets are about more than just numbers. Budgets represent possibilities and allow us to bring the ambitious dreams for our community’s future to life. Aurora is a changing and growing place, one where staff, Council and the community all work together to make our Town truly unique. We are a community which embraces and celebrates our small town charm and urban amenities. There are exciting things to come for Aurora. From the development of the former library and seniors’ centre areas to the potential building of a new multi-use community centre, there is a lot to look forward to.

The theme of this year’s budget is Ready for the Future and we are pleased to present a 2018 budget that does just that. 2018 represents a more sustainable budget, one that sees us reducing our reliance on development charges and development growth spikes and represents a more normalized income stream. This proposed budget positions the Town for success and will allow us to deliver on a long-term strategy that will exceed the needs and expectations of our community.

We continue to be more accurate in our reporting by rightsizing in certain areas and are committed to presenting a budget that keeps pace with the changing needs of our growing community.
