Budget structure and process

Through a carefully planned budget, we deliver valuable services to residents. Budget priorities are guided by our strategic plan and engagement with the community. 

City council considers the budget proposed by staff and finally approves a capital and operating budget. The capital covers the building and rebuilding of things such as roads, city facilities, or buying new vehicles. Operating covers the costs of delivering municipal services, such as salaries, supplies and electricity costs. 

Past budgets
