Budget Process

The budget process draws information from historical data and direction from a wide range of sources such as various studies and plans, as previously approved by Council, and require hundreds of staff hours to complete.

The budget is developed based on existing services levels, adjusted for growth, legislated requirements and inflationary factors.

The objective is to be fiscally responsible in managing the Town assets and operations, while continuing to provide service excellence and community engagement.
