We want to hear from you! Your priorities and thoughts on how the City delivers services are important. Using this budget simulator, you will be able to provide input to the budget deliberations on six services that the City funds with general municipal taxation.
Just like Council, you will be required to balance the budget in the exercise below. Keep in mind that an additional $80,000 represents a 1% tax increase, and that any changes you make in funding to one service will be required to be offset by changes in another service.
To help you with your decisions, we have provided a brief description on each service and a chart that shows how the budget is allocated across all City services. The numbers and impacts provided are for discussion purposes and actual results may vary. You can also read about our 5 year financial plan here.
Please move the slider left or right to reflect your preference, you may partially nudge it in one direction using the grey box, or move it all the way to the end. You are also provided with a place to enter any comments that you wish to share with Council for each service and one at the end for any comments or input you wish to submit.
The results of your input will be provided to Council and considered in their budget deliberations.
Thank you for your participation!
