2019 Budget

Like any business or household, each year the municipality is challenged with increased costs. The cost of providing services must be balanced with a tax increase the community can afford at any one time.

For this reason, only the capital works and operating costs that are considered to be critical to maintaining services have been taken into consideration for the 2019 budgeting process.
