Budget 2020 - Your Input Matters!

Since the municipal election of 2018, residents have told Members of Council and the administration what matters most – strong financial management, responsible development, preservation of our distinct heritage and culture, road safety, protecting our environment, and providing quality amenities for our growing population.

These goals are entrenched in Council’s Strategic Priorities, approved at the end of 2019.

The 2020 Budget is about listening to these goals and providing evidence-based knowledge and research to assist Council as they finalize the Budget and move closer to making priorities a reality.
