The draft 2021-2023 budget was presented to Council at their October 26 meeting. Council will debate the budget on November 16-18.

The proposed 2021-2023 budget includes a significant emphasis on addressing transportation-related issues, creating a proactive infrastructure renewal plan, delivering core services and managing slowed growth and the economy with a 1.27% property tax increase.

When planning the budget, the Town estimates how much money will be spent (expenditures) to maintain public services and infrastructure, and how that money that will be generated (revenue) to meet the anticipated expenditures. Once these estimates are made and plans are set, staff develop the budget for Council’s consideration.


Thank you to everyone who provided feedback. It’s being compiled and will be provided to Town Council before they begin deliberations Monday November 16.
