Budget Introduction - Resources

The capital summary provides a high-level view of the proposed projects for 2019, and the associated budget/funding allocated for each project.

A comprehensive budget document containing general information about the Town, the Town budget/finance processes, and detailed information about the proposed 2019 capital budget, operating budget, and fees is available online. Please note: this is only a draft, subject to council discussion and approval of the 2019 budget. The final budget document will be updated following Council's approval of projects and initiatives, which is scheduled for January 22, 2019.

The first section of the budget document contains the proposed operating budget including background information about the Town, the Town's budget process, financial policies, proposed new/change in service levels/staffing and operating budget changes by department. The Proposed 2019 fees by-law can also be found in this section, with proposed fee changes highlighted in the document.

The second section of the budget document contains information on capital projects proposed to be funded and unfunded capital projects requested but are beyond the Town's budget funding envelope.
