Budgets

One of the most important tasks each year are the annual budgets which requires good planning. Council balances the provision of quality services while maintaining property taxes at a reasonable level. The budget process starts with Council focusing on its goals and the Asset Management Plan. Municipal staff consider these policies as they develop the budget details. Council makes final budget decisions on behalf of our Township.
