The budget represents the vision of the Municipality. It is a balanced and sustainable financial plan to deliver municipal services efficiently at approved levels, while also planning for the needs of the future. The budget identifies the resources required to deliver services, while the tax policy identifies how the budget requirement is raised. Our fiscal year is from January 1 to December 31.
