About the Budget

In 2019, Council approved its very first multi-year budget covering three years, 2020, 2021 and 2022. However, it is required by law to undertake a final review and approval of each coming year’s budget to ensure its continued alignment with the Town’s priorities.

The Town’s priorities align with those of Council, as well as its approved Strategic Plan, all of which are heavily influenced by the Town’s businesses and residents.

Overall the Town strives to ensure that every approved budget:

  • Allows for the continued delivery of the Town’s programs and services that residents have come to expect
  • Achieves all defined service levels
  • Invests in the long term sustainability of the Town’s essential infrastructure
  • Supports the Town’s strategic plan objectives
