A budget is a strategic document which outlines the business plans for the operating and support service departments’ delivery of programs and services. Ideally, it links the Town’s strategic direction and priorities with business plans, budget allocations, performance indicators and measures.

Administration submits Operating and Lifecycle/Capital budgets to Council for review and approval on a yearly basis in accordance with Council policy and the provisions of the Municipal Act.

An operating budget details the funds required to maintain the Town’s day-to-day operations.
A lifecycle/capital budget details the funds required to build and improve infrastructure and key community projects.
