The municipal budget is how Council translates their strategic plan into dollars. It requires multi-year thinking and planning to ensure that our community needs are met in a way that we can afford. The budget contains operating, capital and reserve amounts for the Town and for our Water Utility. Staff and Council work through the budget process for month, with the first presentation in November and a final budget decision by March. The Municipal Government Act requires Council to deliver a balanced budget and that means more work needs to be done by Council and staff between now and March 15, 2022.
