The Community Charter requires all City spending be authorized by bylaw, adopted by Council. The Five-Year Financial Plan (or budget) bylaw provides a budgetary framework for the City to plan and manage its resources, revenues and expenditures in order to best serve the community.A Message from Mayor Banman
Council has been clear this year in requesting that staff come forward with a near-zero increase for next year and I am pleased to say that I believe we will achieve this once again. Over the coming weeks, there will be opportunities for you to participate in the discussions toward the finalization of the budget and I encourage you to do so.
As always, it is vital for us to hear from you so that we can provide a direction for our community that is reflective of the needs and wants of all of our residents. Please feel free to contact us directly if you wish at firstname.lastname@example.org
