The City’s annual budget process is open and transparent, with public consultation being a vital component. A key priority is to educate the public about the process – to ensure they are informed and have multiple opportunities to comment on the budget and how the City invests their tax dollars. This includes educating stakeholders on how property taxes and water and wastewater rates are allocated. The annual Budget Book (PDF) provides an overview of the budget and this process.
