Budget Allocator Tool

In line with Council’s Responsible Spending strategic priority, the Budget Allocator allows residents and business owners an opportunity to engage in the budget process and learn more about how tax dollars are spent. This tool demonstrates how increasing, decreasing or maintaining budget spend will directly impact service and program delivery. 

The budget is our opportunity to decide how to invest your tax dollars to continue providing programs and services that improve the quality of life for you, your family and your business on a daily basis.

This is your city and your money — please take a few minutes and share what’s important to you.

The Budget Allocator allows you to select your preferred budget option for seven of the day-to-day programs and services that impact you most. Each option includes details about the associated service impacts of reducing, increasing or maintaining current spends and allows you to leave comments about your choices.  

It includes major service areas in the tax rate operating budget that impact the daily lives of residents and businesses, based on the 2017 approved budget. Many additional service areas and factors will be taken into consideration when developing the 2018 Budget.

The Budget Allocator is open until January 14, 2018. Feedback gathered through this tool will be shared with Council as part of 2018 Business Plan & Budget deliberations to provide insight into the public’s priorities. Council is scheduled to approve the 2018 Budget at a meeting on January 29, 2018.
