2014 Business Plan
Following Council’s budget directions, City staff prepared the 2014 Business Plan.
Following a series of cuts to the City’s proposed capital and operating budget, City Council has approved a 2.0% tax increase for residents, which translates into an additional $74.58 to the typical Barrie home assessed at $277,000. The 2014 Business Plan Consolidated Motion document identifies all of the changes made to the draft Business Plan.
By-laws required to implement the 2014 Business Plan will be presented at a subsequent Council meeting(s). The 2014 Business Plan also contains recommendations of changes to user fees for services, products and goods provided by the City of Barrie.

A presentation describing the draft budget was presented at the Budget Breakfast on December 3. Subject to Council’s discussions, the Business Plan & Budget will be approved at its January 27 meeting.
The Business Plan & Budget establishes the annual service levels and costs for the city’s programs and services. There will be choices to consider about how to find the right balance between service levels, property taxes, debt and user fees. The Business Plan & Budget will aim to match service levels with available revenue to maintain the level of service provided to the community.
