Budget Cover Thumbnail  

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.
